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.

I have been here twice. The first time the service was not terrible good and neither was the food. The second time the food was a lot better, but the person ordering had been several times and knew what to order.

This is a gourmet restaurant with low prices. I love going here. The atmosphere is also great. I recommend everybody who is going to Bergen or is living in Bergen to go here. The food is to die for. I have been here many times, and has never been disappointed. There is food for all ages here.

This is probably one of the best places to eat in Bergen. They have lovely food, great service and a nice atmosphere. Downside is that it is rather expensive, especially if you like to eat a sizeable portion.

5 of us took the chance on this one, reservations worked perfect, the place was full of guests when we arrived always a good sign. As always in Norway the price would scare off any Spaniards, however we were of bunch of Norsemen. We went for the 10 tapas plate and the house wine (a rich Rioca). Superb quality on... More
