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.

MENU

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.

PRIVATE EVENT?

Riggen restaurant can be hired for private events like birthdays, weddings, funerals, company parties and so on. We can also make luch and dinner for tourist groups that has been on whale safari or are going to participate on a whale safari. For more information about this and prices, please contact us.

These smiling people are taking a #snowshoe tour around and over the frozen lake of Bleik, in beautiful winter light. Did you know that we also arrange these activities?

Så vakkert .👍⭐️

A very beautiful picture! 👑 How often is the aurora borealis visible over Andenes during winter?

You know that these days in #andenes the sun doesn't rise... but could you guess that the moon doesn't set? 😲 It nearly touches the horizon in the north, like the midnight sun in summer, and then...up again. 🌖 🌍 ... See MoreSee Less

You'll find it as A4 with ISBN 9783674102201, or a larger with ISBN 9783674102218

🌬🌊A storm passing in the northern Norwegian sea is no weather for a boat trip.
Birds like #fulmars, though, have great fun in this weather, using the storms to fly effortlessly over hundreds of kilometres!
Of course we meet them also in calmer conditions...

It’s refreshing and comforting to see these animals swim free and happy. Unlike the poor 1400 dolphins that were killed in the #faroeislands this week.

We are really looking forward to the safaris this weekend, after some great tours in the last days. Can you recognize all these three #whale species? 🐳🐬🐋

In orden of appearance: Minke Whales, Orcas, and Sperm Whales?

The whales in the first picture are *fin whales* - the second largest species on planet Earth, after the blue whale. The others are orcas (of which a calf, with yellowish eye patch), and the king of Bleik Canyon, the sperm whale 🙂
