“Every day we buy choice seafood from our local fishmonger. We take pride in basing our dishes on the best local ingredients. This includes meat as well as fish, vegetables and berries. We also offer locally-brewed beer. Our reward is seeing the look of satisfaction on the faces of our diners.”

This culinary philosophy makes dining at Svang a very rewarding experience. Good dining starts with the freshest and highest-quality local ingredients – and Helgeland has so much to offer!

Your hosts also believe that your drink should enhance your dining experience. Our knowledgeable staff will gladly suggest wine and beer pairings that complement the dishes you choose.


The word svang is well known to the natives of Helgeland and Northern Norway, and it has an interesting etymology. Svang is derived from the old Norse word svangr, meaning “empty stomach” or hungry.

So when you are hungry, reward yourself by visiting Svang Restaurant & Wine Bar.
