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.

I have been to Naboen on many occations and I have reviewed it once before, a while back. During the last couple of weeks, my girlfriend and I have been dining there twice. On both occacions we had the steak with fries (not the "plankstek" with duchesse potatoes) and the food was near perfect. The meat could have been a... More

We walked into this restaurant at 8:00 on a Sunday evening without a reservation, but were able to be seated immediately in the ground level dining room. Got crowded as the evening went on, but service was consistently prompt. Broad menu selections and nice wine list including many half-bottles. Lots of creative appetizers and the house salad was the best... More

If you're in Norway you know alcoholic beverages are not cheap. However, this place is fairly reasonably priced and has an amazing selection of Norwegian craft beer. We sat at the bar in the basement and had their "cannibal" sandwich with chips (fries). Best chips I have ever ever ever had! Seriously friendly bar staff and nice overall atmosphere. My... More

We visited this restaurant and it was fully booked and so they suggested the basement bar. The food comes from the same kitchen, although is a different menu, quite a bit cheaper yet still delicious and good sized portions. Would definitely recommend it!

We had been recommended this restaurant and were happy to see a 'T A' award on the window as we walked in. We were shown to a table, a jug of water was plonked on our table and we waited. Given the menu we decided on our drinks and food options and we waited. On ordering our drink options we... More

During the week of July 21, we dined at Naboen on two occasions. The first time, as recommended by others, we had our meal downstairs in the pub area. The emphasis here is on their "Swedish Dinner" menu. Prices, at least for Norway were reasonable. Our second visit we ate upstairs. The same menu was available at the same prices... More

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
