Decent tapas

Good selection of tapas, I especially recommend the tomato tartar, the cheese balls and the meat balls, and of course the datiles con bacon.

Great location, combine this with a trip up Fløibanen! Nice staff, trendy Interiour. We did the "fiesta" can absolutely recommend it! The scampi and lamb fillet were the highlights.

If you want tapas this is the place to go. Escalon has been expanding for a couple years, but this is the original resturant. I think it all started here. Now the quality on the food is very high. We were 7 people enjoying every dish we were served. No one was'nt satisfied and we were still talking about the... More

Nice restaurant in Bergen, soft atmosphere and good light. The service is on average and the food of good quality. Maybe should be better about the price/quality comparison. Try this "Spanish" restaurant.

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!

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.
