The Chef

Mikael Björkman

Mikael Björkman is a 38 old Swedish chef that like to play with the pure tastes from the fantastic local ingredients that is mainly found in the clear and pristine waters of Lofoten Islands. He will always try to make the guests feel welcome in a warm ambient!

Mikael started to work in the family bakery in Stockholm while he was combing studies in the restaurant school together with bakery. He has been working around in Stockholm in quite famous restaurants before Mikael and his wife Noemi decided to move to Lofoten Island and open Krambua Restaurant.

Noemi’s Italian background is also shown in the cooking from time to time.

The Menu at Krambua is changing very often based of the season and after what the fishermen (or) Mikael and Noemi can catch! One of the most important things is that Mikael always wants to guarantee the freshness of the food so there is a new menu more or less every day.




The Manager
