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

We were one of two American couples eating at Spisekroken, and a local (Norwegian) couple was curious how we happened to find it. It's off the tourist "beaten path" in a storefront in a residential neighborhood, and well worth finding. My wife enjoyed fish and I had veal, their specialty. Good starters and desserts, too. As elsewhere in Norway...no bargain,... More

We were in Bergen for just two nights, read about this restaurant on Tripadvisor and decided to try it. We arrived at 6, the time of our reservation and were seated immediately. (do make a reservation! -- within the next hour the place was full, and I heard the host say they were fully booked -- on a Monday night)The... More

My partner and I were out quite late and looking for somewhere to eat quite late at 10.30pm. We found this place and even though they were due to close at 11pm they were very nice and accommodating in taking our booking. This is a very cute restaurants which oozes charm and personality. Candlelit tables and nice old-style interior makes... More

Great restaurant service and food. If you want something besides the typically touristy food found in the wharf area the short walk is definitely worth it.

Went to "Spisekroken" for a date and was very much disapointed. I had read about how coosy and nice this resturant was, however to my disapointment it did not live up to its praise. The food was very good, I choose their specialty which was veal from the west coast. It tasted delicious and was well worth the price. The... More

Don't miss this wonderful restaurant! Food was perfectly prepared and elegantly presented. The restaurant is small and cozy like the name suggests. Our favorite meal during a two week trip through Europe.
