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 best sea food restaurant in Kristiansand.

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.

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.

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.

Location and staff is very nice, the food however... This restaurant used to hold a high standard, now is more like a trailers truck stop. This is a nice place to take a beer and a fish soup for lunch and enjoy the beautiful view.

Summer on the terrace; is THE best place to be! Abosolutely wonderful location! The food is also very good, but this time the fish soup (that has been in lead for about 20 years) was a bit different. Tasted like something was missing and something else added - the result not as good as it use to be. Fish and... More
