Beautiful setting and space. We were pleasantly surprised to find such fine dining, 78 degrees north. Delicious dinner, equally delicious cocktails and a wine cellar, which we were fortunate to tour, to die for. Excellent!

We visited the Huset. A 10 min walk from most hotels in town. However excellent dinner and a worthy place to have either cod or Reindeer. Great ambience. Highly recommended too in Rough Guide Norway
