We went to Rorbua to try something new (well I did anyway). After being told to sit where we wanted we sat by the window looking out on Akker Brygge. After a shirt time we made our order, the waitress was very pleasant and convinced...More

We visited after reading reviews on line and walking the harbour earlier on in the day, noting it would be a nice area to go back and eat in. I myself had the fish and shellfish soup (which was delicious!) and my partner the meat...More
