The restaurant was really intimate and cozy. The quick and friendly service also made our evening special. Me and my wife chose 3 tapas dishes and they all tasted fantastic!

Cosy restaurant in the centre of Bergen, close to all the main sightseeing places in town. Was met by helpful staff who helped us to choose both what to eat and drink.

The service was good and the food too. It was a bit cold there. They should heat up the restaurant. I've been her for several times. I would like to recommend them.

A great break from Scandinavian fare (although that is great.). Wonderful taste combinations many unique. Helpful servers. Conveniently located, by the Funicular. For Norway, this place is priced reasonably. It is small and reservations are needed. I wish that it had lunch so we could have returned.

It is a good option for a quick and not pretentious meal. Although it advertises itself as a tapas restaurant, it is not exactly what one can find in Spain. It is more like a restaurant that aims to please as much people as possible, which it is not a bad thing.

Stopped in after arriving in Bergen and were told a table was available, but we'd have to be done in 2 hours, as there was a reservation later. We ordered olives, skewered chicken, scallops, fried potatoes. Sauces were fantastic. Small, friendly place.

Bergen's one of the best tapas restaurants, actually! Norwegian prices, which non- Norwegians might find it a little bit expensive?? !!??

Well located and food OK. Nothing special about the tapas served. Service not at all friendly for what should be a cheerful place.

If you like taps, this (and its sister restaurant) are the only game in town. The food is very good, the service is as good as it gets in Norway :-) and the setting is welcoming, though a little bit cramped. We go there regularly.
