Serving a shellfish plate without a plate to throw shells, extra napkins etc. is definitely not a good idea. We had to ask repeatedly for basics. Staff seemed enthusiastic but lacked training and routines

Description
Sjohuset Restaurant has for nearly two decades been a landmark among Kristiansand's finest restaurants. Here you're served fish and shellfish of supreme quality, lobster fresh from our tank - and a good selection for those who prefer meat. Idyllic location on the waterfront makes a perfect setting for a memorable meal. On the outdoor restaurant you can enjoy a full meal or have a refreshment in the evening sun. Open (kitchen): 17.00-22.00. From April open from 11.00.
