Great Service and Good Tappas

Our waiter was very attuned. We had a relaxed night and the waiter seemed to be happy and enjoyed being there!! Go the Scottish!! The attentiveness you could only hope for in silver service types of restaurants! Tappas were good! Good place out of the touristy area with a good atmosphere.

At Escalon I really like the atmosphere, good tapas, good service and especially I like that they have dishes marked with what allergens they contained - it makes it so much easier!

The menu had many of the regular tapas dishes and while they were ok, it was the more unusual that really stood out. We particularly enjoyed the whale, the quail, the chèvre and the scallop. We give an extra plus for the fact that all the dishes was marked with what allergens they contained and that I, without asking for... More

We visited this restaurant following our trip up the Funicular in the evening. It was recommended in the Lonely Planet guide. We sat at a table with a view out to the Street which was nice to watch the people going by. They have 2 Set Menus the Classic and a larger one called the Fiesta. We decided to go... More

The tapas are excellent. The red wine is very good. The service is excellent. The selection is broad. We liked the quail, chicken, manchengo cheese, and the house red. Good coffee. Located right by Fløibanen entrance in the basement of a building. Sit at the counter by the windows and get a very different perspective of the passing crowds. Great... More

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!
