Excellent

Best food so far in Norway, we ate hear both nights we stayed here. Highly recommend the fish soup, which was way better than the fish soup we had at a fine dining restaurant the night before - full of seafood and very tasty.

The lattes are excellent, the service is fantastic, and I've come back five times. There is not a single bad thing on the menu. If you're going to get food in Aalesund. Get it here!!!!!

only reason i didn't give 5 stars is i'm not a fan of the places you have to go to the counter and order and pay right away. it was a nice cozy little space and the james dean burger i got tasted amazing. i wanted more it was so good.

The food here is great. I ordered a "Slice of Sydney" which is chicken, bread and great salad. The food arrived after 10 minutes even though the cafe was almost full. It tasted great and the portion was big enough. The staff is friendly, and the interior is nice. Would suggest to friends and colleagues!

Great out-of-the way bistro! Fantastic food and great value for the money! Food quality was excellent - everything was very fresh and prepared as ordered.

I went to this place after looking the review in tripadvisor, and I was not disappointed at all. This was one of the best place to satisfy your mouth in Alesund.

Having gotten acclimated to cruise ship food for quite some time, it was an absolute delight to dine and spend time at this wonderful restaurant. My husband and I did not have massive amounts of food at the time but enjoyed the delectable large chocolate chip cookie/coffee as well as a tasty croissant and coffee as well. A cold day,... More

Had a few hours to kill while wating for the flight back to Oslo after a meeting in Ålesund. Had the vegetarian soup...amazing!! The bread that came with it... Even better!! If you find yourself in Ålesund you need to go there, you will not be disapointed!

Sometimes in life you stumble upon a place that is more than just a place. What I've found here is not merely a cafe and not just a restaurant. Lyspunktet is a portal, a galactic link to a world of high quality tastes, sights, and sounds. The drinks and foods here are almost unfairly delicious, I am constantly delighted with... More
