Went here a late evening as i'd heard about it on the street. I was not let down! This restaurant offered a great atmosphere, lovely food, like really good and tasty food. It was well worth the money, especially with such a good service.

Stopped by on the suggestion of the staff at the tourist info center, and we were so glad we did! It was an inviting and casual environment with a warm fire going in the room. Two of us had fish sandwiches and one had the fritters. We all had a local beer, and it was a great time. We wanted to go back and try out their soup buffet, but we ran out of time!

Hubby and I visited early sep and with summer coming to an end and still remnants of sun warmth, this is the best place for beers on the patio. It is equipped with glass wind barriers so you can comfortably enjoy the late afternoons after a tour! Highly recommend

Had a very pleasant evening here and the burger I ordered was delicious. The quantity, though, was not great - the burger was served with three chips. (I know that they were bit thicker than usual, but really!)

We have eaten in Skarven and Arctandria several times in the last few years but everytime we go, we are more disappointed:

- quantity of food is sometimes ridiculous, for example with Kongekrabbe. Previous time we went, they served two small pieces and the last time, only a very small piece, almost cold. Of course, the prize didn't change.

- waiters in Arctandria are not specially friendly.

- dishes served almost cold in most of the cases.

It's really sad to see that prizes are going up (and the bill was already expensive for a regular dinner) but the quality and specially the quantity are going down significantly.

Although reindeer is really tasteful, we are considering not to go anymore to Skarven.
