Description: The name "Naboen" means neighbor, and this is just what the Naboen Pub & Restaurant is, a friendly and inviting place to eat and drink. Hospitality is job one here, and the Scandinavian kitchen, staff and culinary tradition are representative of Norway. The food is all made from scratch, as it would have been two hundred years ago - no processed ingredients allowed. Naboens' menu is a culinary delight, one heaped in Nordic tradition, and best of all moderately priced. Guests here partake of Norwegian food and spirits as they should be enjoyed, Bergen style.

This restaurant is booked up most nights, I was lucky to walk in and get a table.

Luck was in form! The food ws brilliant and very nicely presented. I particularly enjoyed the Shrimp cocktail.

“The friendly neighbour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

A small, friendly place in the centre of bergen. Never been disappointed by the food. On the menu you'll find a good range og scandinavian dishes which will give you a taste of traditional tastes. They also have a small set of quite inexpensive swedish options on the menu.

The place can be visited for an informal dinner with friends, as a place to take your inlaws or for a romantic dinner with your loved one. It in a strange way can suit every occasion. Highly recommended.

“excellent, excellent, excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

Ate upstairs in their fine restaurant and enjoyed it so much. It was the best meal of our four days visit to Norway. The young gentleman who served us was so good at his job. Just eat here to try the delicious food.

“Great pub food and beer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

The hotel receptionist told us about the pub downstairs at the Naboen, and it was certainly the best value we found in Bergen. Huge selection of beers and wines. Where else would you get Gewurtztraminer by the glass? Very busy but staff make great efforts to find you a table or bar stool.

“The best place for an informal dinner?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

I went here with my girlfriend, and during our stay in Bergen this was be far the best meal we got. We tried the pheasant which was really good. The staff was polite and attentive, and compared to Norwegian standards the prices are low. The place is popular, so be sure to make a reservation a day in advance.
