Cozy and popular place in a basement. The food was really good. Service was OK, but lacking on attentiveness.

Great tasting tapas at a decent price with excellent service. Would recommend getting one of the pre-set menus and ask to change any dish that does not suit. Reservations are essential. Both Escalon restaurants in Bergen are usually fully booked out if you drop-in

This is a tiny restaurant half below ground so that you can sit, eat, drink and watch the world go by. The menu is long and contains most of the favourites you will know from Spain. The food itself is excellent, the service friendly and...More

After a couple of years studying and working in Spain I started to love tapas. Have visited both Escalon and Lille Escalon several times, but I`ve never been impressed with food nor service. The quality is different from each visit, probably depending on the chef....More
