Historical Surroundings

Svinøya Rorbuer includes one of the most distinctive restaurants in the Lofoten Islands. The “Børsen Spiseri” is housed in a venerable quayside warehouse dating back to 1828, and considerable emphasis has been placed on maintaining the building’s original features. Most of the building’s historical attributes have been preserved, providing an atmosphere with an aroma of tar and rope. The dishes that are served here, are made from Lofoten’s unique and fresh, local ingredients.

Whether you come alone, with your family, friends or with all your colleagues, we guarantee to do our utmost to ensure that you will be satisfied.

Both meat and fish dishes are served here. Our focus is on local produce and our speciality is stockfish delivered from the fish factory 50 meters away.

In the same building we find the former “Krambua” or old general store, which is a tiny museum in its own right. Old wares and equipment from bygone times still hang from the ceiling there, taking you 100 years back in time.
