“A restaurant with contemporary food and interior”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014 via mobile

It is the one of my favorite restaurants in Bergen. This is a contemporary and experimenting restaurant with a weekly changing menu.  Often experimental disses are based on seasonal local food. The interior is modern scandinavian. The acoustic is not so very good if there are many people in the restaurant. Service is good. The staff is often professional and friendly. I love also the drinks from the bar.

“excellent service and food quality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

This restaurant is just waiting for it's first Michelin star ! Opened summer of -13, it has established itself as the top food destination in Bergen.
The kitchen has chefs trained at the best restaurants in the world, and it shows in the quality of the presentation and taste. Excellent value for money, and it is not expensive !!

“Good food, bad service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2013

The food was really amazing. We went for a three course lunch. Not very much food, but that is not expected from a high end restaurant.

The service was not impressive. I expected a certain formality and finesse, but the waiter gave us a "Hi!" when we stepped inside, setting the standard. The staff seemed bored, or they have hired people that are way to casual. It does not make sense wearing nice uniforms, working for ambitions and very skilled people, serving excellent food, for then to greet people as they are in for a hot dog with ketchup.

They have a tremendous reputation to live up to. I am sure I would have been impressed had it not been for the service.

“Promising, but still more to learn”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2013

We have visited this restaurant twice this fall. The whole familiy was gathered for a brunch to celebrate a birthday. The Food was well prepared and of high quality, but what surprised me much, was the reception when I presented two of may grandchildren in front of the kitchen.
We were invited inside, the children were dressed with the chefs clothes and could witness the preparation of their own, ordered food. What a pleasent experience for all of us!
The next time my wife and I had a lunch on a quiet wednesday. The Fish was well prepared,
the soup strongly seasoned and the dessert acceptable. The waiter should however not have been asking us for every dish if we were satisfied with the dish? A restaurant at this level with ambitous intentions do not have to ask questions like that.

“fantastic seafood!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

Went to Lysverket for the first time on Friday 9th November together with some friends. We had the Chambre Séparée. All of us had the 3 course menue.
Starter was Squid from Skagerak, carrots, hazelnuts, ginger aigre doux and Potage Crécy - I am not that fond of Squid - but this tasted absolutely fantastic.
Main course was Tusk with potato pure and chips, tiny onions, sunchoke and Sauce Bearnaise.
And for dessert - Valrhona chocolate cream, caramel ice cream, sablé and chocolate tuille.
The atmosphere was very good.
