Lovely lunch spot

We enjoyed lunch here and felt they provided good quality and fresh food for the price. Wine was also reasonable (bottles for 350-500NOK)

We stayed 2 nights in Ålesund and visited this delightful cafe twice, for a light lunch and for dinner the following day. We were very happy with the quality of food brought to the table by friendly wait staff. Although we didn't make reservations, we were lucky that we were seated on both occasions. Some walk-in guests had to be... More

We did not make a booking in advance & we got the last free table. Seemed like there were lots of tourists there as everyone around us was speaking English. Staff were very attentive & service was quick. We had the lamb which was nice but they missed putting something with our meal, however when we complained it was soon... More

We go here approx. once a week eating a quick dinner. We usually order chicken salad that is really good and good value for the money as well - and we order a bruschetta. The bruschetta they had before was so much better. It was also suitable for vegetarians and gluten free as well. The new bruschetta lack a bit... More

Really great meal at Lyst. The staff was incredibly nice, the drinks were good (which doesn't happen at most places) and the food was good. it was also a beautifl night and we sat outside. There were blankets on all the chairs in case one gets chilly. Great meal in Alesund!

We found this pearl of a restaurant in the middle of Alesund by luck. The menu is small but there is something for everyone. All dishes were beautiful and the service very nice. The atmosphere is cozy and invites for a extensive dinner! Absolutely to be recommended.

Lyst serves exellent food, but you got to have time to wait for it. It takes over 30 min for the simplest of dishes to appear. Yet, the tasty food makes partially up for it. You kind of forget the wait once you dig in. But don't go there for a half hour break. That's a vaste of time..

Norway is very costly, so finding a nice spot for dinner, which doesn't cost like a golden ring is great. This restaurant was very nice. Order the fisksoppa - fish soup, its amazing!

At reservation we got a very friendly reception. Arriving for dinner was very unfriendly, which got confirmed in a unfriendly business attitude like having a maximum of table service achievements. Food was very average too. A little disappointed as we really expected a better quality.

We were there as a family, and ordered a fish soup, baked fish and something from kids menu. Everyone of us enjoyed the food. So delicious and average priced. The staff in there was kind and helpful, however the restaurant had not enough free spaces, so we had to wait until the table is free.
