We had an excellent dinner at this restaurant. My husband had reindeer, which was cooked to perfection. The appetizers were delicious as well as the desserts. Highly recommend this restaurant.

My colleagues and I had a really good meal here during a visit to Bergen in the spring of 2014. The restaurant was a short walk from the city center and had great ambiance. The food was really, really good and surprisingly well-priced. I highly recommend spisekroken to anyone visiting Bergen!

I was happy that I could get a table there for a solo diner. I had an appetizer sampler with shots of aquavit to pair. The food was excellent. Three amuse-bouches out which one was soup. Then I had veal which was also very good. The waitress was a little nervous and had to check her notes to explain thing... More

A cosy and well-regarded Bergen restaurant but on the showing of our Monday night visit, the kitchen delivers a patchy performance. A cod main course was good: a veal main course (supposedly a speciality of the house) was poor, with chewy meat and a not greatly appealing appearance. Overall rather a disappointment, considering the high price of the meal.

Spisekroken is delightful small restaurant just out of the main tourist area of Bergen, it was a nice walk from our hotel on the wharf. There are two levels, we had a great table on the main level, right on the window. I think out of the two levels I would prefer the main level and not the basement, as... More

I will relate immediately that our experience at this restaurant may not have been typical of others who have eaten here. I read the reviews of this restaurant and was impressed with the comments relating to the quality of the food and the cozy atmosphere of the restaurant. I made the reservation here for our anniversary, which coincided with our... More

We stumbled in here during a freezing downpour like two drowned rats, not at all dressed appropriately for the lovely little restaurant filled with smartly dressed local patrons. We were welcomed and seated and we enjoyed one of the best meals we had on our entire 12 day journey through Norway! The tasting menu was incredibly affordable and a fantastic... More

A 3.5 really - the food was pretty good and the waitress friendly. There was just something missing: a little bit of seasoning; a thank you after we paid (and tipped) or as we left, just little things which meant that this place wasn't as good as we had hoped. Would probably go back but order differently and with lower... More
