I visited Sorrisniva as part of a large party of guests (150 or so), and we had a great experience. I understand they normally serve fixed menu, but because there was so many of us the meal was served as a buffet, with som dishes on each table and approximately 40-50 dishes to select from on the buffet. The food was really nice, very tasty and nicely arranged, based on excellent produce. I recommend the reindeer plum, the hare, and lots of fish dishes. The staff was attentive with drinks and cleaning, and the experience at Sorrisniva was a overall great one.

We couldn't wait to visit the Ice Hotel once it opened and it met all of our expectations!

The sculptures were amazing, we were given a little information booklet and we snapped away till our hearts were content!

By chance we enquired if they had a table free for dinner as we knew they were always booked up well in advance but they squeezed us in and it made for a lovely evening (the chef even came out to personally meet everyone to make sure their meals were satisfactory) which was the finishing touch to our visit.

We will be back!

Tables surround a grand open fire. The chef bangs out his best offers with stunning local ingredients. The result is a romantic and fantastic meal. Dessert menus had about 12 choices. Local cloudberry mousse was amazing. Reindeer was top quality. The king crab was great.
