Opticom's kitchen is getting worse and worse. Pizza is not that bad, that is - for Norge. But biffsalat is just hard salty mess swimming in salty oil. Few lonely strips of cucumber and three sad salad leaves drowned in oil. If you're thinking about healthy meal don't even bother. Few months ago it was quite decent restaurant. Now.. just... More

Called in here early evening and ordered a pizza margarita as my husband only likes a basic cheese and tomato pizza. The barman advised that we would only need one to share between the two of us so we did so, not sure what to expect. The pizza, when it arrived was huge - at least 45cm in diameter -... More

This is the place for a good pizza or something else during the day time. At night it turns into a crowded place with happy people and a splendid atmosphere. Here you'll meet people from all over the world, but most of all - you'll get to know the Finnmark attitude and spirit.

Staff were polite speaking good English which is helpful for someone visiting Norway without speaking Norwegian. Food was very good and fast. The atmosphere was generally very good.

Out hotel in town recommended this and we had a quick pizza dinner in mind... Ended up leaving after nobody greeted us upon arriving, and nobody showed up at our table for five minutes. Inexcusable especially as one would think that in this remote town on the edge of the Arctic Ocean every customer counts?

We stopped on Opticom for a late dinner in the middle of the week. We had the place almost for us self. Good and polite service, fast delivery Place seemed nice and clean. The pizza was to our liking and price not so bad. We had a nice stay and will come back.

Ordering a pizza in Norwegian when you don't speak the language is a challenge but the lady who was serving us was fluent in English and was happy to design a pizza just for us. It was an excellent pizza and so large that it kept us going not just for that evening but for the two following lunches as... More

I have been here a couple of times while waiting for my plane to leave. It is a mix of restaurant/café/night club - but if you´re just looking for something to eat or drink and kill an hour our two it´s a good place and they have free Internet access as well if you have brought your laptop.

What other reviewers have noted here is exactly right: mismatch between service standard and food standard. Part of the problem is that the place tries to be (needs to be?) several things at once: bar; discotheque; pizzeria. When we arrived a couple were eating in a corner; four regulars were exchanging banter at a table nearer to the bar. We... More
