The food was very nice and there was an option to make dishes vegetarian which I really enjoyed. The food itself was very nice and the portions were good. It was expensive but not as expensive as other restaurants in the country/town. The service was very slow even though at least 2 waitresses were working and only 3 or 4 tables were full. We had to walk back to the reception and ring the bell to get their attention. If they improve this, the restaurant is very good.

Poor, disinterested, incredibly slow service. The table next to us arrived at 8 and were still waiting for anything to eat an hour and a half later.

It's a little hard to find in Alta, but well worth it. I had the fish buffet, and indulged in 4 different fish dishes, fish soup, 4 salads, vegetable dishes and then the dessert selection was fantastic. The strawberry crime fraich ice cream pie alone was worth the journey to the Arctic circle! The restaurant has a different buffet every day, it's reasonably priced, and they are lovely people too.

I went to this restaurant for a family dinner, and we have all been extremely satisfied. We had a dinner buffet with a good selection of food, fresh fish and some typical dishes.
The cost of the buffet is 300 kr, quite reasinable for Norway.
We fell in love of the place because clients are seated in a room with big windows facing the fjord. The view over the landscape is fascinating and peaceful, especially in those months when the hours of lights are longer.
The convenience of the opening hours (until 22, but quite flexible) and the kindness of the owner complete the picture.
Warmly recommended.

For a city that does not have soo many options, this restaurants is quite good. The price is ok for the city, and have a lot (but not only) Fishes and Norwegian Traditional Food.
This restaurant has a superb view from Altafjord.
