Sleek cafe with great views

Took the hop on hop off bus and stopped to catch the great views of the port and city. Had simple lunch of whole wheat roll with delicious strawberry jam and the caramel tasting Norwegian brown cheese.

If you're ever in Ålesund, you have to go up to the Fjellstua Viewpoint. If offers a really astounding view over the town and its surroundings. You can climb up the more than 400 steps, which is a great workout as well :) or there is also a little sightseeing train that leaves from the harbour (which I didn't). There... More

Excellent view but food is below average. Bunker burger - fat industry made between two sticky pieces of bread served with industry italian salad and fries. The fries were ok. Vegetable wok - do not try it! The chef wore the most dirty uniform I have ever seen at a respectable place. Though - roumours say that surf and turf... More

Fantastic building and views. Personell was friendly. However, prices are on the extreme side even for a Norwegian! Have never seen more expensive ice cream anywhere.

We had lunch buffé at Fjellstua. The view is great, you can see Ålesund and Norways beautiful mountains. The food was good, but nothing special. 10 minutes after we got seated, they were already out of scrambled eggs. So for 375 kr, I don't think you get your money's worth. Bring your own food and enjoy the view for free... More

We called into the cafe after climbing up to the viewpoint. It's very smart, with big windows for panoramic views. We did feel that there was a long queue to get served. Prices are high by UK standards, but in line with Norwegian prices. We were disappointed that we could not have hot chocolate, or any speciality coffee, as advertised... More

Very nice view of the city of Ålesund, the sea and the islands. You can walk up 418 steps to get to the little mountain Aksla from the city center, or reach it by car, bike etc. It is worth the climb, and it is easy to find the starting point from anice park. The restaurant is clean and inviting,... More

The view is magnifique. Ålesund is the most beautiful city in Norway and famouse far out of our borders. But the restaurants prizes are insane. I had to pay 40 NOK for a bottle of water and also a glas of water from sink cost almost 10 NOK. Icecream and cakes as well are very expensive. I also find oudoor... More

Went for lunch for 12 of us the food was so fresh and delicious, the price was reasonable but the most wonderful thing was the view across the city and the Fjords.
