We were delighted when many tourists left Nusfjord and we had this restaurant and its beautiful views mostly to ourselves. The menu is similar to others in Lofoten, but especially well-executed here with some pleasing tweaks.

The lovely village of Nusfjord is quite small, but has the essentials of a cute general store and a welcoming local restaurant. We dined in the restaurant on one of our evenings there. Like most restaurants in Lofoten, the menu was limited, but the selections of fish were very well prepared and delicious. The restaurant also offers a buffet breakfast,... More

Restaurant Karoline was very busy when we visited but the staff remained calm and friendly and then served us some great food and OK coffee. Sure it may not have been the best food we have eaten but the location to eat at was excellent.

This is the only restaurant within 15-20mns so be sure to make a reservation on week-ends. The dinner menu is standard: halibut, artic char, salmon, reindeer steak, whale steak, etc.... The execution is quite pleasant: the fish is cooked just right and the meat likewise. Service was fine. Overall cost is somewhat on the high side but this is Nusfjord...... More

The charge a entrance fee to visit Nusfjord. That's fair enough. At entrance we got confirmed that there was a open restaurant. It wasn't, even though the doorsign said it should be. This was a saturday at peak season. Not good enough. The menu looked ok, and we were hungy. wonderful location. A dissapointment we were not served.

Staying in one of robur in Nusfjord, we decided to try this restaurant on our first night in the village. We weren't disappointed! Being end of main summer season, the charming waiter was careful to meet our request for a window table, and moved us when one was free. The view over the main harbour and the nesting kittiwakes is... More

The location is wonderful, service just above the average. The cod we ordered smelled of ammonia and at the end of the dinner we have been asked to change the table because they needed to arrange the table for other people.

The location is indeed very nice, and the lamb was very good, but the cod tongues were not that well. The child menu was ok, but the chips had too much salt. Waiter was polite but not really friendly.

Great service, good food and table with a view. What more can I say. And as the icing on the cake we could join the locals in their Saturday dance on the dock

I came in to this restaurant not expecting much. We ordered a starter of seared salmon with sesame sauce. We were in awe. The flavours are truly amazing. We then ordered a plate of whale and another of lamb brisket. The were so good, and fit to Michelean standards. The portions are large and the views are breathtaking. This restaurant... More
