It was a lovely dinner served by a sami waitress. After dinner, Jon Mikkel, a sami reindeer herder told us stories about his life and the sami way of living, about reindeer herding and did the traditional sami form of song called "Joik". He had us close our eyes as he brings us to spring migration . It was truly... More

Great restaurant situated in Sami tent with a calming fireplace in the middle. Excellent food and service. We enjoyed it a lot and recommend it to all visiting beautiful Sami land.

Storgammen restaurant is located close to the Scandic hotel and the Sapmi Park. It is an incredible place... The building is partially underground. The dining room is divided between small alcoves organized around a fire. The food was really excellent. We ate a reindeer steak. The meat was very tasty and proposed with Brussels sprouts. The staff was very welcoming... More

Expensive, even by Norwegian standards with very mediocre food. Just to add to the underwhelming experience is the comedic levels of customer service. One example we witnessed was a waitress arguing with a couple after delivering them the wrong two dishes. She told them they were "wrong" which made our whole shared Sami room chuckle with mirth. In fairness there... More

Entering this underground place is a bit old, especially if the staff don't greet you at first sight. So it is better if you ask to be seated. The menu has not so many varieties and the prices may seem a bit high first, but when you have your food, you will not be disappointed. The taste is good and... More

It is not cheap to eat here but the food was top quality and the unique venue and its atmosphere makes your visit and meal a true experience compared to a normal restaurant. The food is a modernized version of traditional Sami cuisine. The venue is a traditional Sami building. Some people will probably not enjoy the seating. It is... More

Nice try to do something different in the restaurant. However the seating is really uncomfortable and it is very hard for the kids to avoid spills. After 45 minutes my back was hurting. I had the "finnbiff" which was very good. Also the fish was excellent. Childrens portions are good size which makes it a good value. The mushroom soup... More

The ambiance is good. You eat at the fire place with the other guests which is very warm. On the other side the food is common. We enjoy the reeindeer trio as a starter but the main dishes were in the brasserie way.
