We ate twice at Café Ferdinand during our stay in Greenland and the meals on both occasions were very good, made even better by the freshly baked gluten free bread. The staff were very friendly and helpful, service was good and the food great -...More

The Cafe Ferdinand is the casual dining option at the Hotel Arctic. Service was competent and the food quite good. Atmosphere is pleasant with views of the bay. Recommended without hesitation.

我們在 Cafe Ferdinand 用餐兩次,老實說它的價格和小鎮上的餐廳沒有差多少,並不會說是在飯店就比較貴,當地人很多都攜家帶眷來這裡用餐﹝他們幾乎都是點漢堡,大人小孩人手一個﹞。 我們第一次是先點了四樣菜: Whale suaasat (105 DKK) 是鯨魚湯。Suaasat是傳統格陵蘭湯料理,大多是用海豹、鯨魚、馴鹿或是海鳥熬煮,湯裡面有洋蔥、馬鈴薯和米飯。老實說我們吃起來比較不習慣,鯨魚肉很硬韌、湯喝起來有點濃鹹,當成一種體驗吧! Fried scampi (115 DKK) 的前菜很不錯,這邊的蝦子新鮮又肥大,很好吃,搭配的生菜看起來沒有很漂亮,但是以這裡並不產葉菜類,這樣經過長途跋涉的生菜,應該算是很頂級了。 Snowcrab (main course 235 DKK / starter 125DKK) 是城鎮外海Disco Island的鱈場蟹,吃起來很鮮甜,我們是點main course,雖然看起來不大,但是一整隻真的有點多,吃到後來吃不下。 Spaghetti (185 DKK) 的義大利麵有點普通,它的麵煮得太軟了,沒有口感,反而是煙燻比目魚很讚,魚肉香甜又有口感。 今天吃完的結論就是:在這裡就要吃海鮮!因為當地就是出產海鮮呀!其他料理不會比較厲害,畢竟原料都是要坐船或是坐飛機過來的。 所以第二次在這邊用餐時就只點了 Four small Tapas (165 DKK) ,這個雖然是前菜,但包含了四種海洋的食材,包含了炸干貝、燻比目魚、格陵蘭蝦和鱈場蟹,蝦子是這幾天都吃到的格陵蘭蝦,燻比目魚也是當地特產,這樣四種料理根本就是當地最完美的特產組合。 Fish of the day (185 DKK),今天是比目魚搭配蟹腳,和之前吃到的比目魚片不同,這是一大塊的比目魚,超好吃!尤其它連皮的部分。

Cafe Ferdinand is the light and easy alternative to Restaurant Ulo. You can just pop in here and have cold drinks after all the exertions of the day, enjoy cakes with coffee and tea with a fantastic view as well - or end the evening with a light meal and a drink before saying goodnight.
