What a beautiful restaurant! The staff was so incredibly friendly and the service was impeccable. The environment is so cozy and the food was to die for! Will definitely be back - my new favorite restaurant!

Took about 40 minutes before we even got to order drinks. Extremly slow and obviously not enough staff. We had a reservation and it still took them so long to take our order. Very cold - people were eating with their coats and jackets on....Food just average. I do not get why people rate this place so high. Bergen has so much more to offer. The restaurant is not cozy in any way, and we pretty much wanted to leave as soon as we came in the door. Waiter was nice, but that does not help save the impression. Won’t be comming back.More

We booked a group of 6 people ahead of time. They called us to let us know that they're 30 minutes delayed. When we arrived the table was still occupied and the owner told us that he's to shy to tell them the table is...booked, so we had to wait another hour before it was available. Owner told us he would make it up to us. Food was "ok", nothing amazing. We got soda free of charge for waiting 1h 30 min. After ordering it took 40 minutes before food arrived.More

Really good food even their vegetarian dish is really good! Big serving size..My order is for one person but I wasn't able to eat everything on my plate coz im already sooo full😊 Better to reserve a table coz the place is not that big...and during peak hours it can get full and the wait for next available table would be long. Waited for the food a bit long as well but I can say its worth it 😉.More

Totaly worth the 15 min walk from the city senter. When we entered the small and cozy restaurant the place was full with guests and two tables that needed to be overturned. The owner greeted us right away and explained that it would take a...little while before a table could be cleaned and ready for us. We got to sit down and look at all the wonderful art on the windows and walls, while we waited. The owner was very friendly, polite and thoughtful. We felt like we were invited to his home as honored guest. He made us feel relaxed and took his time at every table without looking rushed. We orded a vegan plate for two and got eight "pankakes, chickpea stew, hot saus, potato, sallad and spinach stew. The food was AMAZING! So good flavours. And it was fun to eat with out hands. The owner took time to instruct us how to eat the food. As we were the last guests to leave we stayed and talked to the owner for some time, and we could have stayed there for the rest of the night 😆 couldn't eat more so we had to order cake to go. This is a MUST if you're in Bergen.More
