Thank you for kind words. I will let our staff know you were happy with your visit. Summer is "fast" approaching, and we look forward to serving you on our jetty overlooking the sea. Hopefully on a sunny day with a nice ocean breeze <3

A good experience throughout. If you're in Kristiansand as a tourist. This should be on top of the list. Building from the 18th century, and the best location and food you can get in Kristiansand. They don't have any vegetarian or vegan options on the...More

This restaurant started out decades ago as a specialist fish restaurant. After finding out that people liked fish, but many also wanted meat, the menu was altered. I have had several meals here over the years and in general this has not been one og...More

Situated by the sea with i nice view over the bay. Good variation in the menu. Quality excellent due to the chef. We tested the 5-course menu. Very good - especially the cheese. Poor wine cellar.

First feel is ' this might be expensive' but I had a nice bowl of cooked mussels with french fries for a reasonable price and was also well advised not to take a starter as that would be to much.

There's no denying the lovely views at this pleasant waterfront restaurant, but it comes at an equally pretty price simply because of the high the cost of living in Norway. The cost of a hamburger, salmon and one beer was a little over $100. The...More

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.
