“Best food in Norway!!”
Review of Sorrisniva

Sorrisniva
Ranked #2 of 23 Restaurants in Alta
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: US$23 - US$119
Cuisines: Norwegian
Description: The restaurant Laksestua (salmon hut) has always been well known for its special architecture, assembling the shape of a Sami lavvo and its pleasant atmosphere. Sorrisniva is in the middle of nature’s larder: the river, the fjord and the plateau offer excellent raw materials for the Chef to turn into delicious dishes. The kitchen follows the food calendar, ensuring the guest have meals appropriate to the season they are in at all time. The restaurant has become one of Finnmark`s best, and our chef Johnny Trasti was rewarded «best chef of the year 2009» in Norway. The restaurant is open for larger groups throghout the year and for a la carte from January to April.

We had just come in from a 3-hour dog sled ride, and looking forward to spending the night in the Igloo Hotel at Sorrisniva. We expected comfort food of a lodge out in the wilderness, but instead got exceptional food by a trained chef. We ate every morsel and wanted more... I encourage everyone to have all three courses, we only had two, but now wished we had ordered three.

Nearly Micheln quality Food
Inexpensive by Norwegian Standards
Brilliant service
Chef Johnne (hope I got the spelling right) is pulling of a silent coup with his exceptional menu and equally exceptional skills
Maitre'd Liv is the sweetest thing ever, who will convince you to try everything on the menu
