Goat cheese salad: fresh, huge slice of cheese, nicely decorated and good tasting combination. Pizza: from real stone oven, dough ok and full of topping. Taste a bit on weak side. Desert: beautiful decorated Creme brullee, fresh and hot crust on top not too dark....More

Nicely located at the docks in Tønsberg, Brygga. Large portions and friendly and helpful staff, but the food was barely ok, not very good. I had fish soup with lots of fish, and the soup was nice and creamy, but the taste was rather lame,...More

Very nice place! In the harbor of Tonsberg beautiful seating on the sun, but the quality is terrible. Attentive service. Regarding quality, fast food that is! Do not expect more from this place.

Most of the courses had on Esmeralda was average, however: The pizza, being cooked in a wooden oven, was fantastic. Would come again. Restaurant is bang in the middle of Brygga, and it can be crowded during the most popular hours.

Perfect spot for a bite to eat in Norway's oldest city. Service was prompt and efficient. Lunch was tasty and the atmosphere was lovely. Great location.

I have been twice and have tasted the restaurant and the pizzeria. Food is very good. Pizza is nice (I am Italian, so exacting about pizza) and It is cooked in the traditional wood Italian oven. Personnel is nice and kind.
