We visited this place in September 2021. The atmosphere was cozy, the staff were friendly and the food was amazing. 10/10 will come here again.

We went for a day in Bugøynes to see old architecture and stumbled at this bistro. Took a starter(photo), dessert and wine. Food was delicious and amazing. Definitely a place to try Finnmarks taste, hard to imagine to be dissatisfied and disappointed in this bistro....You might need to wait for a seating tho, we where there on Friday during lunch time. Place was packed before us and when we left people where waiting in line outdoor area was full. Prices are more like big city categories. My starter costs 235- or about 20ish €.More

Definitely one of the most tasty experiences. King crab with potato, sounds basic but it was awesome!

Boat trip with company. Turned out to be the best dinner I ever had in the world, Barcelona, Miami, London, Oslo, Rykjavik, Cairo, Rome, Nice none can compare with this. Starter menu was a King Crab salad with mango chutney and it was perfect. Enough...to give you a good taste but still wanting more. Main course was the most tender raindeer beef with oath prorrige and some veggies. It was Soo incredible I can't say any meat I ever had was this perfectly coocked. Would have given it 15/10 stars if I could. Dessert was a really good creme brulee. Also 100% correctly done. Area is interestingly decorated, and not tacky. Toilets where very fresh, even had free accessories for women. And changing room for babies. There is not a single thing I can complain about. And I'm pretty good at complaining. 100% recommend! All located in a charming quiet little fishing village one the beautiful Varanger fjord.More

The restaurant is nice and cozy. I had the oven-baked potato with red king crab sauce and it was really tasty. I could eat here again.

We decided to visit the place as we heard excellent recommendations about it and I have to tell, it definitely worth a try! The food was good, the place was comfortable and the staff really helpful. Plus we could see the enormous crabs alive!
