nice location

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)

Turned up here just after 7pm on a Tuesday evening to find it full so booked for the next day. We choose the Klippfisk (Baked split-cod) and Gratinert Torsk (gratinated cod) and shared. Both were excellent but the gratinated cod out of this world - one of the best meals we've had. Followed this with chocolate fondant which was superb... More

After looking at the reviews we headed for Lyst on our first night in Norway. Not having booked we were not able to dine. It was packed! We booked a table for the following night. The staff are very friendly and welcoming. We ordered one starter of scallops which we asked to share which was no problem for the waitress.The... More

We were looking for somewhere a bit special to eat on our final night in Norway and I am so glad we chose Lyst. We had done the walking tour of Alesund earlier, so the exterior of the building (Sunflowers) had already been pointed out to us as an example of attractive architecture; internally the big windows and high ceilings...

We arrived early evening on a Sunday and not many restaurants are open, but Lyst was on our list from reading reviews and we were fortunate to get a table. Both our meals were excellent, and we really wanted to go back another night but the popularity was clear from it being fully booked. Definitely one to try - and... More

Lyst is well worth the visit. Small menu, two fish dishes, rack of lamb, chicken and only 4 desserts to choose from...but really good quality and very friendly and great service. Eating dinner out in Alesund is not to be mistaken as being an inexpensive experience....at least £70 per couple excluding drinks...but Lyst was faultless.

It was a Sunday and the streets of Ålesund was quiet as 99% of the shops were closed. Fortunately Lyst was open and the sandwiches served was awesome. Their food was palatable and tasty and I really enjoyed their carrot cake. Do note that their menu changes almost every day and so it might be different on other days. The... More

We have noticed that Lyst was the place that most local suggested when asking for a nice restaurant, so we couldn't avoid having dinner there. Located in the center of town, with a really nice interior and a menu that covers all apettites. We got tenderloins and chicken(for a change from seafood) and everything was really nice. However, the best... More
