It's a must for staying in Alta, by far the best restaurant in town. Great food and staff, catered for vegetarians, if not on the menu ask, got a great veg burger, husband had the reindeer fillet the best he has had in Norway, great wines as well.

Very happy with the food. Busy night so took a bit time to get the ordered food. The waiter was polite and did a good job, but she seemed to lack a bit of experience and training. The menu could use a better selection of beer and wine.

This is a very popular place to eat in Alta and a table should be booked in advance (there are not may restaurants to choose from in Alta). This atmosphere was nice and the food good, but tapas was a little to "ordinary". It was a Norwegian version of tapas in my opinion. As with all tapas in Norway I... More

This is a very popular restaurant in Alta. It can be difficult to get a table upon drop-in. I recommend to do a table reservation. When you are seated the waiters are eager to serve you and the Food reaches the table pretty fast. And what a dish! Excellent prepared and it looks delicate. Tastes even better. Tumbs up for...

This restaurant is in the Alta shopping mall and provides a wide range of food. I enjoyed the reindeer fillet.

We were looking for a quick lunch and were a bit worried to know we would go to a mall resto but low and behold it was great, maybe even our best in Alta even though we tried both hallden and. sorrisniva, and it was certainly better value. They have a buffet at lunch that was quite yummy as well... More

We had lunch here and chose the buffet offering an impressive selection of food, mostly cold, with vegetables, meat and fish. Warm dishes include soup and meat and there is even melon and pineapple fruit salad. We had Norwegian beer that perfectly complemented everything. Good choice!

I'm writing a new recommendation after the restaurant has been extended! We still have a kickin' eatery, with helpful staff, very good food and an easy access to downtown! I love their grilled stockfish, caesar salad and great tapas menu. Stop by, and taste for yourself! You will not be disappointed. 😊👌🏼

The atmosphere was relaxed with many coffee/cake guests. I ordered a fish soup with shrimps. The soup had no taste. I think they had forgotten spices in the dish. I waited 45 minutes for the soup but the waiter had no excuse.
