Riggen restaurant is located on the first floor at the whale centre which is situated close by Andenes lighthouse. Here you can enjoy a panoramic view of Andenes harbor and the great Atlantic ocean while enjoying good food and drinks. In the summer time you can enjoy the midnight sun crossing over the sky and in the winter time you might get a good look at the Northern Lights or a stormy ocean. Before noon and some hours into the afternoon, the restaurant functions as a café as well. Riggen dancebar is located upstairs and can offer you a nice evening in the same beautiful surroundings.


Riggen restaurant can offer you a variety of fish- and meat dishes from our a la carte menu. We also have a dinner buffet every day where we serve traditional norwegian fish- and meat dishes. On Friday, Saturday and Sunday we also offer some Thai dishes in the buffet. If you are a pizza fan, we can provide you with our well known Riggen pizza, happily as take away if you want. Call and order in advance and we will have the pizza ready for you when you arrive.

We also have to mention our cake buffet on Saturdays where we serve a large variety of cakes at a reasonable price.
