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 restaurant is in a nice location, however a quite small one. No view over Ålesund, but in an old and nice building. Remember to book a table! The cod was very good, nicely cooked and tasted yummy. The dessert was delicious. The service was as friendly, even though not everybody spoke Norwegian.

We had come across this restaurant yesterday while doing our own walking tour of Alesand. It is in a pretty thoroughfare and the building's facade is another example of the attractive Art Nouveau style pervading this great town. We just wanted a light lunch and the menu had a good variety of light bites at reasonable (for Norway!) prices. I... More

This restaurant is located in a very pretty building in the centre of town and has a lovely, relaxed atmosphere. Staff were friendly and the food was delicious - I can highly recommend the klippfisk. Portions are a good size and well priced for Norway. I would definitely go back here.

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.
