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.

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.

Noen bilder fra vår #hvalsafari i går. Vi møtte #spermhval i flott vær! Den første heter "Quasimodo" og vi har sett ham her siden 2002!

Some pictures from our #whalesafari yesterday. We met #spermwhales and great sunny weather! The first whale's name is "Quasimodo" and we have seen him here since 2002!

Noen bilder på en annen "gammel kjenning". #spermasetthvalen Curly (eller Hangover) - først sett på en #hvalsafari med oss for 18 år siden!

Some pictures of another #spermwhale that we have encountered for a long time! He's named Curly (aka Hangover) - first seen during a #whalesafari with us 18 years ago!

Hvis du er glad i natur, vil du elske Andøy! Videoen viser også flotte bilder på hvaler...kan du si hva de ulike hvaltypene heter? 🐳🐬🐋

If you like nature, you will love our island, Andøy! This video also shows you fantastic pictures of whales...
Can you tell us which whale species you see? 🐳🐬🐋

Utenfor #Vesterålen ser vi bare spermhvalhanner, som drar til Syden for å møte hunnene. Hvordan vet vi det? Jo, vi har samlet ID-bilder (på halen) siden sent på 80-tallet, som forskere både lokalt og internasjonalt kan få tilgang til. Her er én av hvalene som er blitt fotografert både her og ved Azorene!

Off #vesteralen we only see male sperm whales, who swim south to meet the females. How do we know that? Well, we've taken ID-pictures (of the flukes) since the late '80s, that researchers both locally and internationally can get access to. Here you see one of the whales that have been photographed both here and off the Azores!

Gosh the sperm whale head looks like the original one? I repaired teeth and paint work many times in the 90s in the basement museum, what fun it was!😃

Been there last summer... Beautiful!

#Spermasetthval kan kjennes igjen fra merker på halefinnen... her er noen bilder på en av "våre" mest berømte hvaler: Glenn. I mer enn 25 år har han gledet gjester, forskere og mannskap med flotte observasjoner!
Typisk for ham er også den hvite flekken på ryggen.
Kanskje noen av dere husker ham også?

#spermwhales can be recognized by markings on their flukes... here you see some pictures of one of "our" most famous whales, Glenn. For no less than 25 years, guests, researchers and crew have had the pleasure to meet him!
He also has a distinctive white spot on his back.
Maybe some of you also remember him?

Oh how beautiful! Couple summers ago we drove from Finland to Lofoten and were there with you watching whales. I miss it every day! I hope that I can bring my son there some day. 🙌😍

Bliver det hvalsafari i juli ?? Og hvilke forholdsregler tager dere pga. coronavirus ??

As soon as this epidemic is over and it's safety to travel again, we will come to see whales 🙂 It's our biggest dream 💕

#Orca sightings are hardly predictable, but last year at this time they were very frequent off Andenes. A young calf (yellow eye patch) is doing its best to keep up with Mum.

Our "mission" and passion is to show you the living whales off Andøy, but today we feel obliged to share these sad news: two sperm whales beached close to Andenes in the last three weeks.
Since individual sperm whales can be recognized by the markings on their flukes, we are going through our catalogues and archives to find out if these large males were previously seen during our whale safaris.
