Meal of the day is always a good choice. No fancy dishes just normal everyday Norwegian meals. Newcomer on the menu is the Friday Taco. Prices are affordable and the food is good.

This is a local cafe/restaurant that have existed forever. You get Norwegian staple-food, and in graceful portions. It's homemade food away from home. Most locals use this place. It's from a past generation.

Fantastic local food. Price to value - unbelievable. Had a middag there. It was bliss. Interior kind of reminds kantina. Nothing special. But food.. You come here to ear, and food is first class.
