Most of the building's historical attributes have been preserved, providing an atmosphere with an aroma of tar and rope. The dishes that are served here, are made from Lofoten's unique and fresh, local ingredients. Borsen Spiseri is open every day 18:00 - 22:00 and have 120 seats! Borsen Spiseri fit for any occasion Whether you come alone, with your family, friends or with all your colleagues, we guarantee to do our utmost to ensure that you will be satisfied. Guaranteed unique and fresh, local ingredients Both meat and fish dishes are served here, made from Lofoten's unique and fresh, local ingredients. Our focus is on local produce and our speciality is stockfish delivered from the fish factory 50 meters away.

Old wares and equipment from bygone times still hang from the ceiling there, taking you 100 years back in time.
