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

Good food, but not amazed

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... read more

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...

I have been here numerous times and always been pleased! It use to be my grandfather's favorite place to eat in Kristiansand and when I go visit Kristiansand Sjohuset is always my last restaurant to visit! I love the location, the ambience and the high quality foods! The staff can sometimes be a little snotty, but the food is really... More

This is a must visit restaurant. The smell is amazing as well as the food. I cannot praise this place any higher. I have eaten here 4 times and each time the food has been outstanding. It is not cheap but well worth it.

If you love to sit on the pier edge and eat and enjoy good seafoot, is Sjøhuset the restaurant you hav to visit in Kristiansand. About 5 minutts walkover from the cruise port.

At Sjøhuset, you will get great seafood of top quality! I highly recommend the mussels. The price is not too high, and the portions are not small.

THsi old salt storage offers brilliant location and interior for a restaurant. YOu cand watch the see and comings and goings of the little harbour while enjoying excellent food. Especially all fish cources were great, while meat more average. So really a place to eat fish.
