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.

This review is for the cellar; "Nabokjelleren". I have been here many times, the food is always good, especially if you considerate the low prices, they got a large selection of norwegian microbrews and the staff is always friendly and helpfull. I got the homemade fish and chips last time I was there and it did not disappoint, the tartar... More

Attracted by the Swedish menu, which wetted the appetite and seemed incredibly cheap by Bergen standards. Even the full price menu was not as expensive as some we've seen. Had the Swedish meatballs and beef and ale stew. Both served with mash and vegetables. Both circa 143 NOK each (£11.80). Both delicious. Veg was slightly crunchy, just how we like... More

Had dinner by myself here in the downstairs area. As others have said, upstairs is a bit nicer, but downstairs is cozy and and has the same menu. I had steak, which was pretty good. For me, the highlight was the beer. Good selection, with lots of variety. For a no frills quality meal, head to the basement of Naboen.

It is a really good place with local Scandinavian cuisine! I've had an excellent meal and pleasant evening at this place. My choice was traditional Norwegian salmon and even though it's very simple dish and I've had it thousand of times - it was one of the best fish dish I've had. It was very tender, fresh and juicy, served... More

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.
