“Jonas B. Gundersen - a casual and a good choice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

Jonas B. Gundersen is located in the middel of the city center and next to the Cathedral.
They are open throughout the day, with a menu that consists mainly of pizza, burgers and sandwiches. The pizza`s they taste very good. Floorlegger is a classic and highly recommended. Staff are always happy and accommodating, they do their utmost to ensure that you get a good experience at Jonas B.
Jonas B. Gundersen is a casual restaurant.
They have a children's area with children's books (in norwegian) that you can borrow. In addition, a room in the basement for private dinners and meetings.

“Good enough hamburger”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

Having spent nearly 30 days in Kristiansand this year on a project I have tried quite a number of restaurants there.
As a week-day destination to get something decent to eat JBG is fine. Definitely better than the 29th seat it's in at the time of this review.
I ordered a hamburger and it was my favorite hamburger in Kristiansand for a considerably long time (you can read my other reviews to find my favorite hamburger joint). There was a sweetish sauce that gave a very unique and good taste. The portions were OK, service good and the atmosphere very calm and relaxed. Price? Average for Norway. Expensive for the rest of the universe

Would I eat there again? Well – I did the other day. Wanted a hamburger and since my favorite joint was full I ended up here. Still second best but still very very good.

“Fresh juice ????”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

All the other restaurants in that area seemed not so kids friendly, and this one was quite ok to have kids with and the offer of a free Popsicle attracted us. I ate a very good pasta with chicken and creamy sauce, the others were also satisfied. Just dont order the so called fresh made orange juice, thinking that you will get it fresh, not fresh at all, horrible taste.

“Decent located pizza restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2012

Don`t be fooled by the Jazz-theme that this chainrestaurant tries to sell; Its nothing jazzy about this place. The pasta dishes and pizzas are good/above average but too pricey as everyhing else in Norway. The restaurant also offer some Lunch menus that offer a bit more value for money.
