A nice variety of tasteful tapas. The chorizo in a sweet sherry sauce and the baked chevre were stunning. Service was quite good. The waiter forgot our beer but its human to forget, so I survived that little mishap. The interior is rustic and cozy. This has been one of Bergens most famous restaurants for many, many years. Recommended!

I have been here several times, and the quality has varied a lot. I think it comes down to the chef at duty. If you get the right person, you are going to have an excellent meal. Go with the recommendation of the waiter for a little bit of everything and waste no time in trying to compile the tapas... More

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

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
