'Triple Menu' with wine.

We got a nice table for two by the window upstairs on a Thursday evening and were served by extremely friendly staff. We opted for the 'Triple Menu' which meant we had three small starters, a main course of the speciality, Veal, and three small desserts. The starters came with a super sparkling... read more

We have been there around the x-mass time 2015. And we had high expectations because we have eaten there two years go and it was brilliant. For now we had boring nearly poor food, with slow and uninterested service, even a bad wine recommendations. All and all it was a very poor experience. Very big big fall in quality in... More

I have been at Spisekroken many years ago, and had a great meal then. The service and the food is still one of the best in Bergen, and the prices is not to bad. I had the tripple meny (tripple first course, the signature main course with calfs meat and trippel dessert) Tasty !!

We were unlucky enough to have dinner on a Friday night at the same time as two big tables and our waitress was completely overwhelmed (while still polite). We waited 1h30 to get the starters! The aquavit starter is average, the grilled scallop with cauliflower cream is very good but, seriously, only ONE scallop does sound a bit cheap! Both... More

My husband and I went to Spisekroken for our anniversary, and were not disappointed at all. We had an excellent meal, warm, hearty, filling, and delicious! We had the fish soup and scallops to begin with - both excellently prepared. The cauliflower puree on the scallops tied the dish together very well. For mains, we ordered the veal and deer,... More

An absolutely wonderful restaurant, with local diners in the majority during my visit. Away from the touristic center. Reservations mandatory.

First of all, we booked our table using the really good online booking system which was really convenient and necessary considering the place was full by the time we got there. Dinner was really good, all three of us ordered different food (lamb, veal and hallibut) and everyone was really pleased! The sercice was just slow enough to linger and... More

We had an utterly fabulous dinner at Spisekroken this fall. The two dishes we had were the reindeer and the veal and both were incredible...our favorite restaurant on our trip! It is a little pricey but worth it for a nice night out. A cozy restaurant feel yet still a fine dining experience!

The restaurant is located at a quieter part of the town (a 10-minute stroll uphill from the Fish Market) so we managed to find it only after referring to google maps. We loved all the dishes ordered: Grilled Scallops, Reindeer Meat from Røros & Baked cod. All the dishes were very fresh and the waitress would present each dish by... More

Great reindeer meat, and the cod was cooked to perfection. The dishes are well presented and the service is professional and polite. The price is fair for what you get. A place to not miss in Bergen.
