We had dinner at Huset and were blown away by the most amazing 7 course menu chef Christian and his team created that night. The majority of ingredients were sourced locally, pretty much everything was homemade (including sausages and ham) and the taste of every single dish was heavenly. We had the wine pairing too and it was just the... More

The bistro is a bar type restaurant with high standard. If you want to go for a fancy full course dinner, the Huset restaurant is in the same building.

Don't be fooled, what you read is true. Huset is a true gourmet experience in the Arctic circle. They have an unbelievable wine selection and we were assisted by the inhouse sommelier throughout the meal. We ordered an exquisite 5 course meal and enjoyed every bite of it! It was a superb experience.

But the portions were small as they often are in restaurants like this. Some of the food was served on stones and planks. Cool! I would deffintly go back, but I'll be asking... More
