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

X-mas meal

Another meal at Sjøhuset and as always a success. This time it was for a x-mas meal with clients. Great service, great food. Highly recommended for an upscale meal.

Great food. Suitable for business dining, romantic celebrating, or other occasions. I've eaten there the best chocolate fondant ever! You must try :)

This place suffered a dodgy reputation some time ago, for bad service and overpriced. But we gave it a new chance last week. And I was happily surprised. The service was elegant and comfortable. The food was great. -A bit small portions maybe. But interesting and very tasteful. I can really recommend the "Skalldyrtallerken" Shellfish-plate. Great wine combo.

Best seafood, ever! Go test it out, you will never regret it. Located at the water front in an old authentic building. Very friendly and service minded staff.

My wife and I stopped here for lunch while we were on vacation. It is located right on the water and the building is old timey. The wait staff wasnt on point but they were friendly.

The fish soup is a must try. Located right on the water, they are known for seafood. I had the monk fish was cooked to perfection. A few of my colleagues had the version, which looked amazing. In the party of 8 I was there, every dish looked incredible.

On our trip through the country we didn't get a lot of sea food to eat. So I picked this restaurant for exactly that reason. The staff greet us very friendly and showed us a nice table on the outside deck. We both ordered a "loaded" salad, with plenty of sea food on it. It came very fast. The greens... More

We read about this place and decided to give it a shot - what a pleasant surprise. The location is great with a beautiful view. We opted for the Steinbitfilet (wolffish) and the Fiskesuppe (creamy fish soup). We also tried CB beer. The food was very good and we enjoyed the great view. Seating is available inside and outside.
