The restaurant is new, but the venue, the history and the chef’s ambition remain the same: Here you get the best ingredients from the north, inspired by world cuisine. In 1885, Ellen Haugan served food and refreshments to her first guests. Ever since then, the menu at Fru Haugans Hotel has been based on quality local ingredients, with many recipes inspired from abroad. Part of Mrs. Haugan’s success came from delighting Helgelanders with fine dining – exotic dishes accompanied by perhaps their first glass of French wine. But her vision embraced far more: to create a venue that fostered memorable experiences and good conversation.
Five generations and 130 years later, a new proprietor – who also happens to be named Ellen – continues the proud tradition. Although the restaurant has been refurbished, the locale retains its sense of history, as does our menu: the very best ingredients of Northern Norway, inspired by culinary influences from throughout the world. Bon appétit!
