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.

IT was just fantastic to enjoy a 7-dish tapas menu while sitting in The outdoor section of The restaurant. The swedish waiter was very friendly and great food just kept coming.

Have eaten here several times over the years since it was founded, and it has been a variable experience. At our last visit the food was simply marvelous! A great improvement has obviously taken place. I love good tapas, and this was a top experience, to match even the best places in spain that I have visited.

This restaurant was recommended by our little iPad app "Triposo" and we loved it. We dropped in on Friday night around 6.30pm without a booking, and told the waiter that we could be in and out in an hour ... every table had a reserved sign on it, but we were lucky that one table was not booked until 7.30pm....

Decent selection of tapas, some things were very good ... Aioli was awesome, chrizo, goats cheese ... Some very disappointing like gambas, Iberian ham, patatas bravas. If you're after ok tapas then go here ... It's ok. But it's expensive for what you get ... Compared to tapas anywhere else in Europe ... Even London.

The food was pretty good, although like many places in Norway it's a little pricey. The wine was nice, and there were some vegetarian options.
