I ate at Kroa about 4 times and it was a really enjoyable experience. Moose burger, home made burger, catfish and the very delicious fondant (probably not home made, but still very good). Only the price is a litte high for what it basically serves......More

Kroa is a great place to eat. very friendly, good food, I like the local beer. They have some dishes specific to this part of the world like minke whale and moose burger. There are a range of dishes at different price points including pizza.

Amazing food, great service & a cosy atmosphere... Much needed for when the weather turns bad. The prices are high, but if you are on holiday & want some authentic food then this is the place to go.

Had a quick lunch here. The pizza was great. Highly recommend it if you're looking for good pizza. Service ok, waitress seemed a bit board, but everyone can have a bad day. Located in the middle of town so a short walk from every hotel.
