Gammelbua Restaurant: Reine, Lofoten Isl., Norway: Gammelbua Restaurant
Gammelbua is THE restaurant in the Lofoten islands - the only place where one can find "fine" local specialities, which means that there's great food to be found everywhere, but this restaurant specialises only in fine traditional food. It's located in a 200 year old fisherman's rorbu. Inside there are two dining rooms with fireplace, one of which hosts traditional music sessions on weekends. It's a place where both tourists and locals eat and drink (there's a full liquor license) in a merry informal atmosphere. Highly recommended are the seafood dishes: just yummy. Rumours have it that sometimes you can taste the very local speciality of fried cod tongues - there were none when I went there, though I'm surely not broken-heated about it.
