Loved the decor of this place and that's it. Wanted to check out the fish soup after reading raving reviews here but it is only available during lunch. As i was here at 6pm, had to settle for the Bacalao (£20), not impressed. Had tried the one at XL diner which was tons better. Would give them another chance by... More

We had an excellent meal here. We shared a fish platter as,portions were so large. It was,fresh and well cooked. The service was excellent too. The desserts were delicious as well so given how high prices are in Norway it is good to feel one has had a worthwhile meal.

We entered the place and it was already fully booked. We were so kindly given a reserved spot because we were an hour ahead of that reservation. So we were very well and promptly served. The food is outstanding. For the starter the waiter observed that only I ordered one garlic bread but he brought two so that my wife... More

We'd been on a cruise for a few days and this was the first day we decided not to do a tour, and chose to explore the town on our own. As we meandered in and out of stores, we kept asking the locals where the great local places were to eat lunch. As a result, we were able to... More

We paid an occasional visit here while enjoying wonderful town of Alesund, as it was a port of call during our cruise. What a lovely place! Very friendly service, casual but light interior with a touch of fine disign, very good food and excellent presentation. Simple sausage was delivered as a squid on top of fries; our daugher was happy!... More

The restaurant is located on one of the main streets of the town. It has a very niecely decorated interior with a lovely backyard to sit in. The fish soup is delitious and the salads very good as well. Very friendly and helpful Bulgarian waitress.

Delicious meal. One of the few places open in Alesund on a Sunday evening. Staff were friendly and welcoming and the chicken salad was awesome

Aiming at rather simple to medium class restaurant while travelling around Norway with 2 young kids, we loved Lyst. A very cozy atmosphere, flexible and smiling staff and great fishes. We had the gratinated cod and the klippfisk, both executed in a creative way and at resonable price (for Norway). Worth trying if you are in Alesund.

This was the second restaurant i visited in alesund, but very disappointed. i emphasized 3 times that my entrecote should be medium done, but came out 100% cooked, and at the same time not grilled at all. No colour on the surface. The potato chips were however burnt! i asked the waiter to change and he took the plate with... More
