Great atmosphere and very friendly service!

We didnt eat a lot, but needed a place to hang out for a couple of hours, and chose Brakstad. The service was superfriendly, no eating or drinking pressure, which lead to both eating and drinking after all. Very nice place. Thanks!

Vi var gjester i bryllupsfest. Stedet var svært bra. Nydelige tradisjonelle lokaler. Svært god mat og drikke. Vi spiste kamskjell, indrefilet og sjokoladefondant. Betjeningen var serviceinnstilt og alltid tilgjengelig. Topp sted👍 We were guests in a wedding party. The location was very good. Lovely traditional premises. Very good food and drinks. We had scallops, tenderloin and chocolate fondant. The waiters... More

New name, some of the same owners I think. Very nice menu, not too much to choose from, always a plus. Had a snail dish for starters and lamb shank for main, both excellent. Never had snail before - not bad. Some bread and creamed garlic butter was offered before the meal started. A decent selection of wines and beers!

We had for Sunday lunch a toast with a pile of peeled shrimps with a Skagen dressing for one of use and a big plate of fish soup with mussels for the other. My wife and I agreed that both dishes were delicious examples of Nordic cooking. The restaurant has a pleasant interior with a fine view of the harbor.

Had monkfish, one out of two fish main dishes. Nicely cooked and with a nice mushroom sauce, spinace and a big chunk of roesti potatoes (strange but good). Liked it a lot - fresh fish, well prepared. Nice service.

Ordered a panne fried Cod. The fish was good, and nicely presented. Had a glass of italien wine, with it. Overall a bit expensive, but nice food.

Very cool atmosphere and sparse yet warm intimate interior with very good view through the huge front windows which look out on the Karm Sound waterfront affords one a perfect spot to drink beer, wine or coffee and sample one of the many tasty appetizers and snacks on offer. Moderate prices, decent service and hip crowds make this an enjoyable... More

My mother's 60th birthday was celebrated at the restaurant, with friends and family. We had a room for ourselves, and my mother was treated like royalty. The food was great (as always, I have never been disappointed at this restaurant), and the service impeccable. Would highly recommend eating here for a celebration or for just an every day meal. Will... More

We visited this restaurant, and we feel very good. All dishes are cooked with high quality and reasonable price (considering we are in Norwegian). I remember that the portions were generous and we left very happy. if I can I will.

Thank Xus B
