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.

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.
