Good selection of tapas & wine. Service was quick and friendly! Great place for a dinner with friends - we ordered classic tapas menu and shared them in family style. The restaurant is not cheap but if you compare with other restaurants in Bergen, it's worth every penny.

I visited this tapas restaurant on my first night in Bergen! It was a Friday night so I couldn't get a table until 9:30pm but it was worth the wait! I sat in front of the window & people watched while enjoying delicious tapas...I tried the tuna tataki, the warm chèvre & the padron peppers...all yummy! Good wine list too!... More

Looking for tapas? This is the place! Great food, friendly staff and good prices. A small and cosy restaurant situated just below Fløybanen!

We went here twice in July. There is some real talent in the kitchen and the portions are generous. Strongly recommend.

I come to Bergen often and have always wanted to try this restaurant. After finally getting a table and excited to share this experience with my mother the waitress took our order. I asked for olive oil and butter with the bread and the waitress announced on top of her lungs that she can't give me "all of these things... More

We managed to squeeze in as the last people admitted without a reservation and it filled up quickly. Very nice tapas with veggie and gluten-free options.

The place was recommended by our B&B host. It served great tapas and was not very expensive either. We are vegetarians and they had great options for us as well. We really liked GRILLED CHEVRE WITH APRICOT AND SALSA PISTACHIO which was recommended by the staff. The wifi was free and worked fine. The service was quick. It was right... More

I'm usually not harsh in my comments because I know how difficult it is to run a restaurant. But I left this one with a very bad taste because tapas were very basic for an obscene cost. I'm not cheap and I usually pay more when I go out but the food usually worth it, not here.

This is a great restaurant to order several dishes and share with friends. Each item is a small plate, so you can have a little of everything. The staff was friendly and service was good!

OMG! It was sooo good. I was missing some mediterranean food, and I found it. I needed that sangria so badly. After a long time by myself, I needed to reconnect, and that meant going to Escalon. The waiter was very helpful. I spent a couple hours sitting by the window. The place got full of locals in the afternoon:... More
