Amazing bacalao with a stunning view

Fjellstua Restaurant seems to have been renovated recently. We enjoyed a fantastic Bacalao and great wine. The view is impossible to describe, but a must-see when in Ålesund. It might be a bit pricey, but the world-class location is worth it.

Fjellstua is an iconic vantage point in the city of Alesund, on the western coast of Norway. Fjellstua sits atop a mountain, overlooking the city of Alesund. It features a lookout area surrounded by guard rails - though not fully roofed (if it rains, take a raincoat or umbrella). It can get rather windy up there, so dress appropriately. It... More

We had a unique situation, last night Ålesund Guideforening had their 30 years Birthday. We were over 40 people at this great restaurant and has fantastic views especially at night, and together with the selected food we received very good service. Glad to be back.

An amazing journey to get up the hill and this place is worth it for the views alone but the food doesn't live up to the view. Not amazing quality and price but the view is the best in town

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

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.
