Good Food, Great Service

Dinner here with business colleagues, service was fantastic, being very attentive to our big group, with wine etc even though the restaurant was quite busy. Overall food was good, good menus both food & drink, of course in Norway things are overpriced, would go back again

The Lyst is maybe the most trendy place in town at the moment. It attracts a youthful crowd and it's absolutely recommended to make a reservation in advance. The interior is fresh in it's simplicity and the atmosphere is very relaxed. Maybe even a bit too relaxed in my mind as the service could have been a bit more efficiant.... More

Fantastic stop for lunch. They have a fresh, organic take on traditional Norwegian dishes and cover the range from a wonderful shrimp and pesto marinated scallop salad to heavier meals. Absolutely worth a stop.

A very lovely restaurant serving tasty food. I found the price range a little over the top, but I guess it's just the way Norway is. Regardless the food is worth the price

Affordable and tasty food, but not the most cosy place when it comes to surroundings. Has potential!

Eating lunch here on a Saturday made it very busy, but still we got good service and our orders was managed well. The food was nice and good, but they have a potential to make this even better, so I hope this nice place continue to develop

Norwegians love the word "cosy". And this place is pretty cosy indeed. The food was really good & I have no complaints to make about anything else either. The scallops & scampi for entrée with pea puree was delicious & I loved my duck for main. The duck was cooked perfect for my taste. Some people like it a little... More

Make sure you reserve a table if you want to eat dinner here during the weekend. Very popular and for a reason. Lovely food. Split cod good, but even better at XL Diner.
