Very good food and presentation--nice, comfortable dining room. Our server was new so she was charming -- but not quite adept at her job yet. Food was very good--my friend had Whale steak and I had Cod--both excellent. We shared a dessert of vanilla ice cream, peanuts, and caramel. Sounds simple but it was wonderful. The menu was interesting and we would have returned had we had been in Kirkenes another day.

Portions are big and the fries are delicious! Perfect after a day out with the husky dogs! All the entrees were good and we ate there 2 days in a row!

Considering the isolation and having all food being shipped into kirkenes, We were impressed of the variety and presentation of this quality restaurant.
Having looked at trip advisor before we left for our trip we had already drawn a pretty good picture of the sort of restaurant this would be.
The quality of food was fantastic and the sea food chowder is terrific. I had the classic burger with chips and it was a huge serving. my wife had the cod wrapped in bacon and could not finish it. Generally the meals are big in kirkenes. Must be the cold.
I would rate this second after the Thon as far as quality.
The one waiter was busy serving all the people there, so can be a little slow in serving.
Its a Norwegian thing. Norwegians dont like working.

The interior is a bit outdated something which is utterly confirmed when you visit the restrooms. The menu has many interesting local dishes. Unfortunately, the kitchen is not 100% up to the task. We had salmon carpaccio for starters. This was good, but there was no garnish, not even a slice of lemon or lime. A simple offer of freshly grinded pepper would enhance the experience.

We had 2 different fish dishes for the main course. Cod baked in bacon and char. The cod was excellent but the accompanying puree was flavored with curry to the extent it made the cod tasteless. The char was semi-cold and overcooked.

The dessert was the highlight: Caramel cake. Doesn't sound too impressive, but it was really good!

The single waiter does everythning at his set speed regardless of the numer of guests. A bit more enthusiasm, passion for service and sense of urgency would serve the place well.

A rustic yet elegant look makes this restaurant a must. I had my heart divided between pasta or the classic burger - the restaurant's specialty. I decided on the last one by recommendation of our waiter. Excellent service, fantastic flavors, the burger was juicy and it had a garlicky sauce on the side that could be rubbed on to the bun making the burger a bit spicy - in a good way. It was a particularly big dish so stay away if you do not like discarding food. If you are hungry, this is the way to go!!!
