A fantastic foodie spot. Celebrated my birthday there with hubby. We did the wine pairing with each course. They use local and fresh ingredients for their dishes and changes with the seasons. If you want a taste of the arctic, worth the dining experience. Service...More

We had the full 6 course dinner and I also took the wine pairing to go with it and would highly recommend that. You get actually a lot more than the 6 courses. The team and chef have fantastic ideas that they turn into surprising...More

Absolutely fantastic experience from the moment you enter through the door, noticing first the small intimate interiour seating up to 24 people, next the glass door to the extensive wine "cave" and also the fridge for dry aging meats. The staff keep a informal and...More

I dont know why its like this. The restaurant in Tromsø is the same as was in Bodø, with the same owners and when it opened in Tromsø TripAdvisor left the bodø comments still there.
