This is a very good restaurant and we really enjoyed the food. Service was impeccable and it was a nice touch at the end of our meal when the young chef came out to enquire whether the meal had been up to our expectations. We had the 5-course tasting menu, although it ended up as 10 courses with odd things... More

We went there for a quiet meal on a Saturday evening. apart from ourselves, only one other table was seated the wjhle evening. We could choose from 3 dishes,: 7 course, 5 course or 3 course, and we picked 5 course. The service was very good, and the waiter is really putting in an effort and should be given main... More

I ate a Christmas Dinner with our company last weekend. The food was traditional Norwegian Christmas food. I had duckling breast as a starter, then a Bergen variety of cod (Persetorsk) as the main menu and cloudberries for desert. The food is expensive here, even for Norway. (My meal was over 100 Euros/130 US$ excluding beverages) but I think it... More

It's a bit strange: this upscale restaurant has no website, so it's difficult to see what the menu looks like and what type of food is being served. Even more strange: I booked a table via e-mail, but nobody informed me that this night was theme diner only. So, to my surprise, I walked into a wine tasting experience. I... More

Five associates visited the restaurant with some expectations to both the food and the service. Our visit was on an day that wasn't too busy. That gave us full attention from the staff and the service we received was excellent. We chose a set menu of 5 courses starting with an appetizer of superbly home made fois gras followed by... More

We had a three course meal with wine at this restaurant and enjoyed it a lot. We were the only dining guest at the dinner restaurant of the Neptun hotel. The food was excellent and the service was very professional.

Michelin prices and (almost) ambitions, which is a problem with these scales: Compared to the population of restaurants this is a 5. But compared to gourmet restaurants as a group, it is closer to a 3.
