Maybe Bergen's famous eatery once, but today this place is a shame. The atmosphere is terrible 80s, and the food average. The service was not particularly good even the restaurant was almost empty (on a Saturday night!). I had a quite good fish, but when eating seafood in such an "upper" restaurant at Norway's west coast I expect creativity, perfection... More

From the outside, this place looks a wee bit murky, but once inside it opens up into a lovely dining room with table linen. We chose a quiet day lunch-wise, so we had good service and the food was well prepared and served. I had a burger, which was excellent.

We have family in Bergen who brought us here. Charming, historical place with excellent food and great service. It was a very slow Sunday night and we had almost the whole place to ourselves. The fish soup (creamy, chowder like) was delicious and so was the burger and the baked fish. Decent beer and wine selection too. It's just far... More

This restaurant is in an old building just off King Olav V square, in a warm room with lots of wood and a host of old murals on the walls; a very cozy spot. The menu is short but has a good balance of fish, meat and vegetarian. I had the fish soup which was good and the veal loin... More

We went in after having had a look at the menu outside, where at the very top they offered the Light Menu, a set of smaller and cheaper courses. They found us a table for the two of us and we ordered. The waitresses seemed not happy about our "poor" choice, a burger, a sausage and mash and two cokes... More

The food was really good, the service was good, the drinks, the table, the company... I am all over very satisfied! I was there for traditional Norwegian christmas food with a group of colleagues in the beginning of December. We avoided the busy weekend and got the restaurant about half full. The nice waitresses that served our table was giving... More

We were recommended to this restaurant by the hotel as we wanted Norwegian food. Both of us had the fish soup and it was delicious. We ended up going there again on our last night in Bergen. Unfortunately we are unable to recommend anything else as we only had the fish soup.

I can not comment on the food, merely on the service. I made reservations for a group of 8 people. Hell an hour before our time of arrival I got a telephone call from the restaurant. They had cancelled the reservation because a larger group was coming. So they couldn't accommodate us. In hindsight, having read the very average reviews... More

I've eaten here a couple of times and I feel as if it's too posh for me to afford. The prices are actually not that bad. Lunch is the best value meal to consume here.
