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.

Very nice view if you wish to relax. We didn't stay in the hotel just visited it. Just a few minutes walk from the rest of the city center.

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.

Dear guest Thank you for giving us your feedback, we appreciate it. We are sorry you found the meals overpriced, but unfortunately our cost of goods does match the sales prices.

Kirkenes is not Paris - or Des Moines for that matter - and there are limited choices, for a hotel restaurant this place was quite good. We were in Norway for almost two weeks before staying here and two of us - including me - actually ordered hamburgers and they were A plus. My wife and the other person with... More

We recently stayed at the Thon Hotel in Kirkenes at the end of a Hurtigruten trip from Bergen. We arrived at the hotel around noon, and discovered quickly that there was very little to do in Kirkenes on a Sunday afternoon in September. Luckily, the hotel rooms were quite spacious and comfortable. The wait staff at the restaurant could not... More

This was a very nice hotel conveniently located to the Hurtigruten dock. The morning breakfast buffet was excellent with a good selection. Nice location on the waterfront.

Great view! Worth of drink but that's it. Unfortunately. We expected great, fresh, high quality sea food but our experience didn't meet our expectations. Char was over cooked and not "direct-from-the-sea" and vegegies were raw. Salmon was good. Nice Riesling wine but it was warm and got to right temperature at the end of the dinner. Price vs. Quality didn't... More

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!
