Sjohuset Restaurant has for nearly two decades been a landmark among Kristiansand's finest restaurants. Here you're served fish and shellfish of supreme quality, lobster fresh from our tank - and a good selection for those who prefer meat. Idyllic location on the waterfront makes a perfect setting for a memorable meal. On the outdoor restaurant you can enjoy a full meal or have a refreshment in the evening sun. Open (kitchen):15.00-23.00. From April open from 11.00

The food and atmosphere is amongst the best in Kristiansand. I have been here on several occasions, and the only thing missing in order to receive top score, is a bit more attention from the servers. The restaurant is often packed with people, so I understand it might be difficult to give every table full priority, but you often have... More

Great seafood. I had probably the best seafood dish in our week in Norway in terms of taste and presentation. Very friendly wait staff. Highly recommend.

It was an unseasonably warm day in June. We had an excellent seafood dinner out on the deck. Although it was very busy, the service was excellent. My travel companion's need for gluten-free food was quickly and cheerfully met.

The Sjohuset Restaurant offers very nice fish dishes in a very nice location. I the winter garden area you face the water and parts of the marina, which is very calming. What needs to be improved is the choice of vegetarian dishes.

It is located by the sea, and specializes in seafood. And what a seafood, og joy :-) Their fishsoup is one of the best I ever tasted, so try that if you go there. The service is the best.

This restaurant is located by the sea in an old storage house. Very nice place to go. Their speciality is seafood, although they do offer meat courses. If you come here in November/December go for the Lutefisk, and old traditional norwegian fish course made from dried cod. The best lutefisk in town. The staff is always friendly and service is...

Sjøhuset is the oldest good resturant in Kristiansand as far as I know. Growing up I've been there a few times in summers with family. I think this is only my second visit as an adult. Visited with colleagues on a business trip. The location at the waters edge is excellent. The atmosphere of the place is good. The food... More
