Super location at the dock with a waterview, nice interior and ambience, friendly and helpfull staff. The menu is full of fabulous local fish, crab and raindeer, but the sidedishes are basic and lack the little extra, taking the price into consideration. There are plenty of opportunities to spice up the dishes and make the menu more informative and appealing.... More

They served caviar for breakfast! For a change, we had freshly made waffles which the girls enjoyed. Nice scenery too.

Splendid waterfront location with high quality cuisine, specializing in Norwegian seafood and fish. We shared a seafood platter for an evening meal which was beautifully presented.

We arrived late in the evening when there were few people still in the restaurant. I had crab soup, which was delicious, though I had to send it back to be heated, as it was served quite tepid. As with most things in Norway, it was extremely expensive - about 3 times what I would pay for a similar meal... More

You can look out over the fjord from the restaurant, watching the ships come into harbour, and the light changing across the water. Only a few minutes walk into the shopping part of town. In a town with no tourist office, the reception staff are incredibly helpful and knowledgeable. Excellent breakfast buffet included in the price.

We didn't expect much but came in because of the location that we can see the Northern lights. Foods were perfectly prepared and services were great.

Nice restaurant in the Thon hotel with a view looking out over the see. Food was good, the only issue was that they got our order wrong and had to do it all over again. But otherwise, the best place to eat in Kirenes

It does not reflect the food of a high end restaurant. The price is high end. The food is good, but nothing special. Wanted to try the king crab. But not for kroner 1200.00.Yes, that is correct, one thousand two hundred kroner.

Description
The Restaurant is located within the Thon Hotel in Kirkenes which was opened in May 2010.

Breakfast:
Our breakfast buffet is served every day in our restaurant on the ground floor. The breakfast buffet offer a broad selection of spreads, hot dishes, several types of bread, fresh fruit, cereals, milk, juice and freshly brewed coffee.

A la carte:
Our restaurant offers an exciting a la carte menu with both local and international dishes made from local and fresh ingredients. The menu varies according to the season, and the chef draws inspiration from Finnmarksvidda (The Finnmark Plateau). During the summer we open up our outdoor terrace where guests can enjoy a good meal and refreshments under the midnight sun, right by the waterfront of the fjord. The bar serves drinks in an enjoyable atmosphere.

Welcome!
