Our story


Welcome to Bacalao, a beloved restaurant that has been a staple in the community since 2002. Our establishment is located in Svolvær, in a former automobile workshop which was transformed into a beautiful and elegant dining space, situated close to the city square and the sea front.

Preferred by both locals and visitors, our warm and trendy atmosphere compliments our selection of locally infused classics, whether you’re looking for a bite to eat or refreshments to quench your thirst.
Our own beer, Surfers Blonde, has become very popular.


At Bacalao, we pride ourselves on offering an informal dining experience with high-quality food, while still maintaining an atmosphere that is welcoming to everyone. Whether you are looking for a romantic night out, a business lunch, or a family dinner, Bacalao is the perfect destination.

One of the highlights of our restaurant is our amazing outdoor seating. Our new outdoor lounge, equipped with heat lamps and a fireplace, ensuring warmth regardless of weather. Wether it’s raining or beaming with sunlight, Bacalao is the place to be.

This is the perfect place to enjoy a meal in the sunshine, surrounded by beautiful views of the city, the sea and the mountains.

We look forward to welcoming you to Bacalao, where we invite you to sit back, relax, and enjoy life.
