    Located at the Svinøya complex, this is one of the town's top tables. A former fish house, it still retains atmospheric beams and wooden floors in its dining room, and it used to be called the 'stock exchange' after the bench outside, where the town's old geezers would gather to debate. Stockfish and Lofoten lamb are the specialities.

    Anker Brygge

    Anker Brygge, originally a shack for salting fish and nowadays furnished like an old-time kitchen, is a wonderfully cosy place to dine. The cuisine is just as traditional and the recommended menu choice is (of course) fish – try the halibut with Jerusalem-artichoke puree and champagne sauce. Outside, the pub terrace is far more casual with pizzas, burgers and steaks.

    Ni Hao

    One of northern Norway's better Asian restaurants, Ni Hao has a lovely waterfront setting with a few outdoor tables, a stylish interior dining room and assured cooking. The beef dishes, using tender sirloin, are a real highlight.

    Hjerterommet Kafe

    More a coffee and cake kind of place, this eclectic little cafe is a fine little pit stop. The decor ranges from a bed mattress to cutesy and colourful wood, and the whole place is brimful of personality and warmth.

    Bacalao offers a range of creatively assembled salads and sandwiches, and some equally delicious pasta dishes; the hot rekepasta (shrimp pasta) will set your taste buds tingling. Bacalao also expresses some of Lofoten's best coffee. It transforms into a popular bar – sometimes with a DJ or live music – once the kitchen closes.
