4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

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

We ate downstairs in the pub. We had to go up to the bar and order our food as no one came to the table. We also had to pay right then. We had to get our own water - The only thing the server brought us was the flatware and the food. My food came out about 10 minutes... More

We live in Bergen and go to naboen often, especially the downstairs bar area. Nice staff, quality food , and reasonably priced considering the quality. We also often take visitors there and meet friends for a beer ( try the Bayer!) . Highly recommend.

Always a challenge to find a nice local meal that's not too dear in Norway, but this find in the cellar of a fancy restaurant hit the sweet spot. Saw a neighbor with a plate loaded with steamed veges and upon learning it was the Swedish meatballs I had the same. Great dish with the required lingonberries of course, and... More

We went to this restaurant after a recomandation from one of Our customers here in Bergen. The menu looks good, but the way you get threaten buy the waiters is far over the limit.

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.
