It may not be the easiest place to find but it surely is ridiculously cool and yummy.
Located in what I think is an old boatshed it is one great place.
Tables, chairs, crockery, simply everything seems to be one of a kind collected from probably a million different places.
Welcome and service by what I think is the owner have been extremely warm, friendly and authentic. Food takes a while to come out but given everything is made with so much love, it's well worth the wait. The quality of the food is absolutely outstanding - very high quality with fresh ingredients. Some of the best we have ever had.
Only three dishes on the menu - traditional Bacalao and one meat and fish dish each. But that is all you need really.
One of the loveliest, most personal restaurants I have been to in a very long time.

We were just back from climbing one of the local hills and needed lunch. We ordered an omelet and a hot chicken and cheese sub. Both were very good. Might go back tomorrow.

I read these mixed reviews and thought that we probably visited this place for lunch on one of its best days. The service was very good. Very knowledgeable and definitely taking pride in the place/food. The food was cooked very well. We liked both the fish soup (probably one of the best we had in Norway), and I liked my fish (I think it was cod fillet). Very tender and not oversalted.

I had hot chocolate. My husband had cappuccino. Both were good. Also had the apple cake, which was good although a bit dry. Nice interior atmosphere on a rainy day in Leknes.

This is not a destination restaurant, but it should be a destination stop near the Viking Museum on the way to Leknes, in a small farm house beside the road for a cup of tea and cookie or one of those wonderful Norwegian waffles with homemade jam and whipped cream or, if it's around lunch time as it was for us, a "Local Lunch". It's the Norwegian version of the English pub's Ploughman's. Lilly also has some neat, reasonably priced gifts: crafts, handmade mittens, local jellies and teas and the like. It is not easy to find even though it's right on E10, on the right hand side as you are going south toward Leknes. And Lilly herself is delightful as well as the young woman, described herself as an intern, learning the trade. You'll feel good having stopped. You won't be stuffed. The quality of what you eat and drink will be excellent. And you'll have picked up a little gift that you look forward to giving when you get home and telling about Lilly Gunn's

This Thai Restaurant is in the center of town on the 2nd floor of a building. our group ate there twice, lunch & dinner, and everyone was very pleased. check the hours before going. the owner doesn't seem Norwegian, maybe Russian, don't expect warm service.

Cozy and good Cinnamon bun was great, coffee too. Best is that you serve yourself the cakes, so take the size you want :) Remember to notice the "lamps" in the ceiling. Staff was smiling and helpful.

This place is a bit hidden, but the atmosphere and food are certainly worth the small detour. View from the outside Terrace is great. Service is warm, welcomming and friendly.

Nice ambience and very pretty cafe inside. Coffee was good for Norwegian standards. We had a lasagna and chicken pasta salad which were quite good. Wifi was a nice inclusion.Thank you for your feedback, we appreciate it. Welcome back on another occasion :)

God mat og hyggelige folk som jobber her! Fin plass å spise lunsj. Det er også muligheter for å sitte ute, noe som passet meg bra:D
