Nice place with pretty good food

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.

I stayed in Aalesund for one night with my girlfriend and we walked around downtown during the night and went into this place. It was a very cozy place with friendly and professional personnel. We had some Bacalao and some gratinated cod that tasted really good. It was a little bit $$, but not too bad. The price at this... More

Interesting and well prepared menu/food. The homemade cake are a treat and the coffee is made to perfection. Like the fact that the place has tables outside at the front and in the back at a courtyard.

We stayed in Alesund for 2 nights on a 2week trip around Norway. We arrived here on a Sunday which is probably not an ideal day as nothing is open including restaurants! However Lyst was and what a charming little restaurant. I had the bruschetta and it was delicious and my partner had a prawn salad. The service was great... More

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
