Nice little café and delicious chocolate cake. One of the best coffees so far in Lofoten (we are not big fans of automatic machine coffees which seems to be often served around here).

Cozy atmosphere, beautiful views on the sunny terrace, great food and the service was spot on! Will definately visit this place again.

We ordered a home made hamburger and a goat cheese sandwich with salad. The sandwich was delicious, the hamburger was also tasty, however a little small portion for a man after a long trip :)

The restaurant is super cute and cozy. There's a possibility of sitting outside and wanted to because its sunny but i can't coz its too cold because of the wind at the same time😁. Ate here for dinner. The menu limited but enough options to...choose from. They even have vegan or vegetarian options. The food is really good. Ordered fish with white sauce and potato boats on the side and lemon cake for dessert.More

We just ate a small dish, so I cant's say too much about the food, but the restaurant is very atmospheric and the service was good.

Food in Lofoten is normally good, but here I was VERY disappointed. Ordered a sandwich with lamb. It took a long time to get it served, and it was tragi-comic when having it served. It looked like a seven year old had made it. Dry...normal toast with butter. Loaded with chopped lamb. One small piece og salat, cucumber and tomatoe aside. Dry and NO taste. The chef need to do some self evaluation and self critic. This is not what Ramberg deserves.More

First you didn't order sandwich with lamb but smørbrød med strimlet lamb what means toast with shreded lamb and you got it on toasted home baked bread. If it was so bed why you and your partner eat all of it. So it means it...More

What a great little place! We really enjoyed the atmosphere here; a cute little house with a warm welcome. The food was excellent and the prices were very reasonable (for Norway). We had beautiful crisp fish and crinkle chips. The regular coffee was excellent; the...cake even better. All in all a cut above the regular café experience with a friendly owner who clearly enjoys what he does!More

Inexpensive and charming lodging, if you don't mind sharing a rather run down bathroom with the other guests. Breakfast was fantastic, and the outdoor seating is great - on both sides of the house, so you get the morning sun with a view of the...mountains ans well as the evening sun facing the ocean. The major challenge was the smell of frying oil - the café obviously serves a lot of fried food, and this smell is lingering in all hallways, not at all pleasant. But if you can ignore that, the rest is good value fo rmoney.More

Nice place to stop while driving at Lofoten. Delicious food and deserts. Also gluten free options available.

I don’t recommend this place. The owner is grumpy and not welcoming alone. The whole place is a one man show so it takes long to get food served. The food does not taste good. The fish was frozen, not fresh. Quite hard to believe...that you would eat frozen fish in Lofoten. It is cold inside the place.More
