Review of Skansen

Restaurant details
Reviewed 16 October 2013

I was passing through Hammerfest on a work trip. Having arrived in town quite late at night I stumbled into Skansen through seeing reviews on here. It also helped that it was in the hotel I was residing in that night.

The service was faultless, and the waiter had very good craic and in English too!
The food (Crab soup to start and Reindeer Fillet with seasonal veg. for main) was exquisite. Both dishes perfectly prepared with the ingredients seeming as fresh as you can get. For the standard of food Skansen was extremely good value for Norway.

I will certainly return if/when I am passing through Hammerfest again.

We had cod fish, halibut and king crab pasta for the main course. As starters we all had king crab avokado mango salad. The food was really delicious and the service nice.

Greatly enjoyed the beautifully presented reindeer filet with delicious vegetables and potatoes dauphinoise. Such large portions that I had no room for dessert!
