Great little restaurant. Service was good and effective. The food was superb, especially the Naboen smoked salmon. I also loved the steak, which was cooked to perfection

Despite trying very hard to snag a table downstairs on a Friday night, we were unsuccessful, so opted for a table in the upstairs dining room, where they held our reservation. They have an extensive wine list, and the hostess helped us select a great choice to accompany my husband's boulebaisse and my steak with potatoes gratin. (Fortunately they were... More

We are a couple with a 7 year old. We were famished when at 9 o'clock we came back from a cruise of the fyiords. It was late and we decided on Naboen's pub in the basement (they have a restaurant upstairs). The bartender/waiter was nice and kind, and we had our food quickly. The food was excellent and abundant.... More

I went downstairs to the pub and ordered the plank steak. It was a good-sized portion and was tender and delicious. It came with bearnaise sauce that was marvelous, and was served with mashed potatoes and five small green beans wrapped in bacon. One of the high quality cheap eats of Bergen, as long as you go downstairs to the... More

They make very good food at a very good price in their basement. I usually go there every now and then. It's been a long time since I ate upstairs. Their burger is good and I really enjoy their Biff Lindstrøm - a real treat for a hungry man.

Usually when on holidays I never go back to a place, mainly because I want to try more - made and exception for this! Had the fish and chips first time - very fine batter and a good chunky cod fillet with a refreshing tartar sauce. Nicked some of my sister's dill potatoes and struck by lightening! Rushed back the...

We came around 8 pm and it was busy. It was 8 of us. All of my friend ordered beers and start talking. I was so hungry and ordered beer and a beef dish. I've got my beer and start waiting for the food. Not long from that rest of my friends ordered food also. By the 8.30 most of... More

We went to Naboen based on the reviews and local recommendation and I think that it was overrated. Food was good but absolutely nothing original, I had the impression that I had the same dish several times somewhere else. When a restaurant has a good reputation, you expect to find something unique in your plate or in the atmosphere but... More

Along with Kafe Spesial Naboen is in a league of its own in Bergen when it comes to price/quality ratio. For under 15€ you get large portions of quality food. Note though that these are prices for food in the pub downstairs, which is the choice place to go. To get to the bar you have to go through the... More

The name "Naboen" means neighbor, and this is just what the Naboen Pub & Restaurant is, a friendly and inviting place to eat and drink. Hospitality is job one here, and the Scandinavian kitchen, staff and culinary tradition are representative of Norway.

The food is all made from scratch, as it would have been two hundred years ago - no processed ingredients allowed. Naboens' menu is a culinary delight, one heaped in Nordic tradition, and best of all moderately priced. Guests here partake of Norwegian food and spirits as they should be enjoyed, Bergen style.
