Klippfisk - Bacalao

Nice and friendly service by the personnel. My wife and I both had fish platter and both types was very tasty. I specially liked the Klippfisk platter. No room for desserts.

Wonderful restaurant, very friendly staff and the food fresh and nice. You need to book your table before you go or you will be seated out in the garden. Lovely place.

Carrot cake was good, cod was a little dry, person at the counter was friendly and helpful, waitresses were unwelcoming. It is a busy weekend, with the Tall Ship race.

Many restaurants in Aalesund are not open for lunch. This is a nice exception. Nice menu, great location and friendly staff makes this a top choice. A favourite in the city centre.

We were recommended to eat here. But almost everytime we tried, they had no empty tables. This seemed to be in part due to a very haphazard system of reservations. They will happily turn people away even when a table is about to come free. Perhaps because they know more customers will arrive. The one time we reserved in advance,... More

We went into Lyst with a recommendation from the hotel staff and a good review on Trip Advisor, but without a reservation (since we had just arrived in Alesund) The tables were booked but the waiter explained that we could eat in their back courtyard if we ordered at the bar. We took a look at the courtyard and it... More

One of best meals thus far. Delicious Cod Gratin with pea purée, mashed potatoe, sautéed onions and broccoli. Generous portion. 2 mains, 2 Coronas and 2 coffees came to 690 NOK and it was well worth it. Strongly recommend.

A girl at the information center recommended Lyst, understandably. We sat in the window which made for great people-watching. Very nice waiter took our order. I really enjoyed my salad with chicken, my friend loved his fish soup. I think the ordering is a different method if you sit outside.

The reviews are correct. This is a great choice. Contrary to what we were told by our hotel reception, the pricing is very affordable. The food is very good with large portions. The staff was very friendly, but there were not enough to match up with the client requirements. Have plenty of time if it is busy. But still, great... More

unfortunately had to sit outside, as we didn't have a Reservation, but the Food made it up - real tasty and the Service prompt (sitting outside we had to order at the bar, but the Food was then served to your table)
