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.

We went here based on previous reviews and I think they were accurate. They had a number of beers on tap and the one we had was very good. The food was good as well. I would go here again.

Arriving late in Bergen, I went to the closest place to my hotel that was still opened. As it said 'bar' I was expecting regular pub food, but was surprised to find a more refined Nordic dining menu. The food had light, clean flavours and the portions were just right. Not cheap but I thought it was reasonable given quality... More

Came here (downstairs area) on both a Friday and Saturday night. No problem finding a table or sitting at bar but groups larger than 2 should arrive before 1800 or after 2000 as I'm not sure they take reservations downstairs. Great selection of bottled and draft beers from Norwegian breweries. Ordered the hamburger (with cheese and bacon) which was delicious.... More

We went to Naboen for the beers and ended up having a really good steak dinner. We found a beer that was reasonably priced at last, and the food was tasty. We ate downstairs in the pub section, which was dark and bustling. Sit upstairs if you want views and a more formal menu, but we liked the pub.

We were looking for Nordic food in downtown area and found this place through Foursquare. We were afraid that we couldn't get a table, but turns out we're still lucky enough to find a table and the it's quite casual as well. We ordered the Veal Medallion and Lamb Sausages. They were amazing and really good value Once we sat,... More

We went for dinner in the basement, which is a bit more relaxed than the restaurant upstairs. The food (we had steak on a plank) was really good and they also have a wide selection of beer.

The basement is a very good place for a drink and some food. The drinks are better priced than other places and the food is very good. The bartenders are very helpful to explain the different types of beer that they have on tap. My group got the steak, the sausage, and the burger. All of them were very good-... More

This review is for the pub/restaurant downstairs. One of my regular places to eat and drink, been here many times and it has always been good, sometimes even great. The atmosphere is really good, it might be crowded sometimes, but I find that a bit charming. The food is always good and actually quite cheap being Bergen and the wide... More
