Welcome to Restaurant Nansen! We’ve gathered the best tastes from the Arctic region, and combined them with Asian flavors. Asian fusion is one of the biggest food trends in the world, and you can look forward to culinary delights whilst enjoying the views of the surrounding fjords and mountains.

Dress code: snowmobile gear

Restaurant Nansen's new menu is based on the Asian fusion concept. Here, we only use the best local produce and combine it with delicious Asian flavors. An amazing taste combination that must be experienced! The windows in the restaurant are made larger, and even more tables overlook the nearby mountains.

The food is top notch, but the atmosphere is informal, and you’re welcome to come in your snowmobile gear, straight from the wild.

The seafood buffet is back!
