Welcoming staff and nice atmosphere is always a plus, and when the food also is very tasty I will naturally visit Lyst again!

Sunday dinner.. Ordered a Sirloin steak which was horrible. Even with a big effort it should be impossible to make such a lousy plate. Would have refused to pay for such a if it wasn't for the very good service. Will never eat there again.

Lyst is a calm cafè/restaurant, situated in the pedestrian street of the town centre of Ålesund. Friendly staff, a great variety of dishes and a nice back yard for smokers. The fish soup is delicious! Lyst can be recommended both for lunch and dinner, or simply having a glass of wine and some snacks with friends and loved ones...

Amazing... on Sunday evenings all is closed in Alesund except Lyst till 8PM.... Anyway i must admit that they have great about flexibility for me to get what I like and I thank them for that. On the other hand... looks like it is mainly cheap eats!

Sweet workers, fast service even when the place is full. Absolutely adorable little restaurant/cafe mix in downtown, which I visit often with friends!

I visited here whilst travelling alone on business, based on the reviews. It did not disappoint. a lovely little restaurant in the pedestrianised area, very close to all of the hotels. The staff were attentive and friendly and the food was tasty. I chose the salmon followed by almond cake, which turned out to be Daim cake. Yum! Would definitelygo... More

Good food and location. The chocolate fondant is to die for! The fish soup is very good. Very popular place among the locals.

I went for lunch and had a steak sandwich - it was cooked how I asked and was very tasty. Nice decor, good and fast service and not a bad price. I enjoyed it

The main restaurant was full so we got a table in the backyard which was incredibly romantic because of the fairy lights and soft lighting (note: table service is only for indoor dining). I ordered the salmon which I really enjoyed, but my partner had the ox which he had a tough time chewing.
