We ate at this restaurant, and while not the cheapest place in town, the food was of fantastic quality. The highlight for us was the reindeer fillet. Good selection of local beers. Great atmosphere. Staff efficient and warm.

Not breakfast, not cheap, unless very late, as well into the day, and/or you are so well off that it would be considered cheap. But they have really good dinners. Recommended.
