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 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. Inside... More

We had dinner here to enjoy fresh cod, so my experience is limited. The meal was expertly prepared of extremely high quality ingredients & delivered in a warm & professional manner by the waitstaff. Our party was on the larger side, so they had to work a little harder to keep up & they did it quite well. I'd never... More

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.
