Description: The Restaurant is located within the Thon Hotel in Kirkenes which was opened in May 2010. Breakfast: Our breakfast buffet is served every day in our restaurant on the ground floor. The breakfast buffet offer a broad selection of spreads, hot dishes, several types of bread, fresh fruit, cereals, milk, juice and freshly brewed coffee. A la carte: Our restaurant offers an exciting a la carte menu with both local and international dishes made from local and fresh ingredients. The menu varies according to the season, and the chef draws inspiration from Finnmarksvidda (The Finnmark Plateau). During the summer we open up our outdoor terrace where guests can enjoy a good meal and refreshments under the midnight sun, right by the waterfront of the fjord. The bar serves drinks in an enjoyable atmosphere. Welcome!

“Dinner with a View”
Reviewed 5 April 2014

Food was good. The view was amazing. Enjoyed our evening and food while watching the sunset. A little pricey, but worth it for the view! All three of us had a very good experience. Both the food and the service were great.

“Great food; prices a bit stiff”
Reviewed 20 March 2014

I had a great reindeer sirloin here, which was excellent. The red wine left something to be desired. A friend had fried duck, which he was also very happy with. Others had smaller dishes, which were not so pricey. Friendly waiters.

“Best option in town”
Reviewed 19 March 2014

A sparse number of diners on a Thursday evening which meant little ambiance but the Italian head waiter made some attempt at humour to liven up affairs. Soup was a bit unsubstantial but reindeer main course was well cooked. Great view of the fjord, in the daytime!

“Overcooked cod”
Reviewed 29 December 2013 via mobile

We visited this restaurant on the day after Christmas. The starters were good but the cod fish was overcooked and had probably been frozen, probably because no-one had gone fishing on Christmas day. The service was slow but the waiters tried their best. Overall probably the best option that day, given the Norwegian tradition of closing everything down during Christmas.

“FABULOUS dinner”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

We had returned from a Hurtigruten cruise and although their food was good, the dinner at the Thon Hotel FAR exceeded the food I've had at any hotel pretty much anywhere!
The waiter gave us excellent service. I had the chicken wrapped in ham with potatoes and it was absolutely fabulous! The dessert was tasty, although when we ordered chocolate cake, we were expecting a slice of chocolate cake - it was still a cake, but just not what we were expecting.
