Arctic gastronomy at its finest, framed in majestic natural surroundings.

Let us ignite your senses and invite you to an arctic dining experience. Our chefs prepare unique creations that fuse local recipes with world cuisine. The nourishing dishes are served in the welcoming spirit of dining in the fishermen’s own village.

Many of our products are sourced from local farms and fishermen. This extends our community outreach, while ensuring exceptional, fresh and natural ingredients in every meal we serve. In Restaurant Karoline, seafood takes sole focus, connecting our guests to the exceptional flavours of the northern realms.

Visit one of our culinary outlets, or request a tailored private dining event.

For us, food goes hand-in-hand with the environment. Our quest is to take a mouth-watering sample of the Lofoten fairytale and present it on our guests’ plates.

Restaurant Karoline

Within the intimate, wooden walls of Restaurant Karoline, alongside the exquisite buffet breakfast we offer a refined evening experience with a weathered ocean view. Knowing that lasting memories are also made through the taste buds, our esteemed chef has carefully designed the menu. It reflects the rich traditions of nordic cooking and the bountiful harvests of our saltwater realms.

The menu is updated several times a year, and adapted to what is in season.

Breakfast 08:00–10:00

Oriana Tavern

Oriana Tavern is a much-loved pearl in Nusfjord, serving Italian pizza. A popular specialty is a pizza with freshly smoked salmon topping. Gather for an ‘aftersea’ experience in the candlelit cave, or indulge in a light aperitif before your next culinary adventure! In the old days, the building functioned as a food and whiskey store.

Opening hours:

13:00 – 22:00 (last order 21:30)

Landhandleriet Café

In the old general store you will find the peaceful and quiet gem Landhandleriet Café. Located just above the waterfront, the café offers stunning views to the mountains and the harbour, and is a perfect place to enjoy a light meal or snack.

Landhandleriet is known for its lovely traditional fish soup. But if you’re more tempted by a waffle, a cinnamon roll, a delicious spread or a coffee, you can also buy that here.

Landhandleriet Café used to be the office of the hamlet owner himself, Mr. Dahl. The old general store dates back to 1907 and has kept its original interior, taking you back in time the moment you enter. Look around for unique details and signs from the busy days as a grocery and post office for the local inhabitants! Landhandleriet Café can also be booked for private events and dining experiences.

Opening hours:

All days
10:00 – 19:00 



Private Dining

We are more than happy to arrange private dining for special events or groups. The old boat shed and other historical buildings are great to add an extra spark to your dining experience.
