When it comes to seafood, we came to Lofoten with high expectations. However I found the menu a little limited. A bit too obvious. Coming from Ireland, I'm used to variety in fish. Having a catch of the day being cod was not adding much excitement to the menu. It should be noted that we visited over Easter Weekend. Not all options were available on the menu.
For starters we had the fish soup and the crab. Simple accompaniments meant it was true to the seafood.
My wife chose the cod for main. It was good, but very bland in terms of flavours. It could have used something subtle to compliment. The cod was served with the same sides as the oxcheek, which was not available on the night. This seems a little lazy. These are two very different main ingredients in terms of flavour, and the dish suffered as a result.
I chose the blue lobster. At 1250kr, it comes at quite a premium. I'm not sure it was worth it. The meat in the claws was tender and beautiful, but the main body was a bit too chewy. I've definitely enjoyed lobster more in the past.
To accompany, we chose a bottle of Chablis, the perfect combination with seafood.
For dessert, we had the petit four and chocolate dessert. My wife described it as the best part of the meal.
Finally they closed earlier than usual so we were asked to leave, rather than in our own time. A bit of a bad end considering my 3300kr bill.
Overall, I was a bit disappointed. It came recommended so I wonder if we just picked a bad time. There is no discount on the holiday weekend though, so standards should not slip.
