Sorrisniva sits just about 20 minutes from Alta on the Alta river, it's friendly, peaceful, good food, I can't say enough without spoiling the experience for anyone who goes there.

We were staying in the ice hotel next door and a two course dinner was included in the price of our dinner.

The ladies are very attentive - we ordered our dinner and ate right on 6pm when the restaurant opened. You can order drinks before then a beer costs about £9. The meal would cost around £55-60 without drinks.

The meal consisting of three little starters, yummy bread basket and home made butters. The mains were cooked well; we had elk & haddock. One of us thought the elk was too rare. The desert we had the cranberries three ways & chocolate moose & the pan cakes.

The plates are not large-American sized portions so eat more bread if you are expecting this!

Friendly helpful staff . Interesting design. Movie like corridors - dramatic. The facilities are outside in practical wooden cabins . But the furs notwithstanding, it would be more of an ordeal, an endurance test to spend the night even in the Bridal suite

WOW! Very Impressive, did not stay the night, but took the tour. Oh my gosh apart from the amazing sculptures and carvings the staff are so, so friendly, informative and helpful, the owners should be proud of the way that they represent their company
