Visited for a business meal. Five persons. We alle went for the "trippel-meny" - house speciality. I consisted of three small starters served together; carrot soup, king crab and finally Santa Christina ham, with either a sparkler or 3 small aquavits to follow. Both wer good accompaniments. Main was a serving of veal, with morel sauce. Very tender meat and... More

My wife and I had a wonderful meal here. We found the staff most helpful in explaining the menu and wine list. The service was excellent. The meal was very well presented on the plate and the flavours and mix of colours and textures was nothing short of excellent. As farmers from New Zealand we enjoy dining out and seeing... More

Away from the tourist trap of the quayside - this excellent restaurant served great food, good wine list and attentive staff. And the cheeseboard had good Norwegian cheeses!

Went to this restaurant because of TA. The place is a bit difficult to find. Bergen is really really pricey and this place isn't cheap either. The service was quite nice. One of us had chicken for main. It cost 279 NKR. One of us had babygoat. The mains were good, but not at all excellent. But the starters and... More

I ate dinner with my wife here this evening. The food was pretty good, but dining in the front room left a lot to be desired in terms of service and atmosphere. While our waitress was working very hard, she was rarely at our table, as the restaurant was way over-booked by a private party downstairs that was clearly taking... More

A small, nice restaurant, that uses local norwegian ingredients. The menu is compact, with a nice winelist adding to it. We where a business group, and we all choose from the menu. Great service. To be recomended

We visited this restaurant based on Trip Advisor reviews and we are so glad we did. If your not from Norway food and wine prices will seem mad expensive and this restaurant is no exception. However taking the quality of the food & presentation this restaurant was probably the best value for money during a week long visit to Norway.... More
