Description: The name "Naboen" means neighbor, and this is just what the Naboen Pub & Restaurant is, a friendly and inviting place to eat and drink. Hospitality is job one here, and the Scandinavian kitchen, staff and culinary tradition are representative of Norway. The food is all made from scratch, as it would have been two hundred years ago - no processed ingredients allowed. Naboens' menu is a culinary delight, one heaped in Nordic tradition, and best of all moderately priced. Guests here partake of Norwegian food and spirits as they should be enjoyed, Bergen style.

Booked and ate in upstairs restauarant. What to say. Be prepared to pay. But enjoy good food in an unpretentious atmosphere. Great service, great food, all diners enjoyed their choice. Others have said enough. This is a good choice for a meal in Bergen.

The starters were OK, while the main courses were all amazing. The menu should have a few more options. But overall our experience was very nice and I would highly recommend this place.

My fiance and I has been eating in Naboen yesterday.. This place is probably the place with most variety in beers to choose on town at a good price.. The food was also amazing.. We both had "plankebiff" that is a nice cut of meat with potato purée and barnese sauce, the meat was very soft and perfectly cooked.. It... More

Please beware that there is the restaurant on the street level and the bar downstairs. I think the reviews here are mixing them and it gets hard to understand. After reading about it here, we decided to try. The street level was fully booked (though I could see tables available) so we went to the bar downstairs. We had a... More

After reading TA I went along and sure enough no tables available but after the good review about the bar section I decided to give it a try. The bar is nothing special. It is dark and with basic hard seat furnishings. I ordered the "famous burger" but cannot for the life of me know why it is described so.... More

We went here for a friends birthday, two of us had been here before. The service was excellent, the food was really good and came in big sizes - we couldn't finish. A different selection of desserts, e.g beer trio with peaches in beer, beer icecream etc. The bill wasn't too bad either. Wouldn't hesitate to go again!

After a much delayed flight to Bergen from JFK, we barely had time to check in before heading out to dinner. With the fog of jet lag buzzing around in our heads, it was nice to find a place where they made everything easy. The menu was varied, the food, excellent and the staff amazingly helpful. I would add this... More

Would advise booking beforehand here as we went on a Saturday night without a reservation and there were no tables available! Luckily we were able to make a booking for the following evening! We really liked the restaurant itself, not too large and it looked lovely with the big windows, pristine white tablecloths and candles. It had a very good... More

This was a bit of a disappointment at two levels, first was the service was it was attentive and trying to be useful certainly it wasn't consistent or efficient enough for a quality restaurant like this, second when your menu is already limited, it is not good enough that your three preferred options are already sold out and the first...

We had a family meal here during our visit based on the recommendations on tripadvisor. We ate downstairs in the less formal bar area; food was good and great selections of beers; prices were very reasonable too for Norway. Good service and atmosphere.
