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.

Naboen is always a good choice. It serves basic dishes that are of high quality. The servings are fairly generous.

We came to naboen a while ago but I remember we had a nice dinner. We had to wait like half an hour for a table, so we had a glass of wine while waiting. Once we had a table, we ordered and the service was pretty fast. What I remember better are the dishes, the portions were really nice,... More

Meet up with a good friend and had "planken", had heard from others that this was the must have. And we where not dissapointed. The beef was so tasty and the rest of the food were also very tasty.

The restaurant upstairs looks stylish and expensive (which it is but not overly as Norway goes) but if you go down the stairs there a dark and cosy bar and restaurant which is less intimidating and offers cheaper meals. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. The food was excellent as was the beer. It was very busy so be... More

We ate/drank at the bar downstairs since we aren't very fancy. Decent beer selection with Norwegian options. Barkeep was very friendly and we got our food fast. We had the Swedish meatballs--yum--and an open-faced grilled cheese which was delicious. The place was busy but the kitchen and staff had no problem keeping up. All-in-all, a very professional place and I'd... More

Naboen has great food. I have been there 2 times. They have fantastic desserts as well. And a nice atmosphere. It can get a bit noisy in there. But I will still recommend it. You have to try it if you are in Bergen!
