Chatty, friendly and popular. The staff had plenty of time to come round and ask us where we came from and give us tourist advice. Food was good - and I recommend the carrot cake!

Just had the best Klippfisk dinner ever. Large piece of perfectly cooked Klippfisk, wrapped in Parma ham, garnished with baked root vegetables, homemade mashed potatoes, fresh thyme and broccoli. Cherry tomato and balsamico reduction. Worth every penny. Great service. Will return.

I have been here a number of times and I have never been disappointed by the quality of the food. The servers are attentive, but often overworked. The same can be said about the kitchen. This was the third time the food for the same table was not delivered at the same time. At least they didn't forget one of... More

I tried the deer meet and it was delicious, with good choices of red wine to go with the meet and very good service, Lyst is a very interesting place to have dinner in Aalesund.

We had a delicious Sunday lunch here. I highly recommend the chicken pesto salad and the burger with sweet potato fries. Reasonably priced too.

Once the poor people from the UK have got used to the eye watering Norwegian prices this restaurant is a real gem. We called in for lunch and found the soup home cooked tasty and substantial. The other meals served to the people around us also looked appetising and filling. The service is friendly and there is a good local... More

This restaurant is used by the local people, which is always a good recommendation. I have only been here to meet friends for coffee (they also do a lovely hot chocolate) so cannot comment on the food. The staff are friendly and the atmosphere is nice. There is quite a varied menu and as it is in the pedestrianized street,... More
