This is right near the main waterfront in Alesund. We stopped for a relatively early dinner after exploring the town This an American themed bar- the huge flag bar is a giveaway It was pretty busy, but we were able to be seated immediately on...a Saturday evening The menu is not very large, mostly burgers and pub fare. We had a fish sandwich and a pretty good hamburger. The fish was a bit overcooked for my taste The fries were great- so few places can make great fries They had a good beer selection It was a bit pricey per US standards- $75 for beer, wine, 2 burgersMore

The food was okay. Had a spare ribs. Good meat, but a little overpriced. My boyfriend had a burger. Was Ok. The stoff did not pay attention. Waited until we got to pay to ask for a glass of water. Was expexting more from the...restaurant itself and the atmosphere, so in total we give the restaurant 3 of 5 stars.More

The food was nasty, my wife had fish and chips, the fish looked like the fish you get from a box of Findus, it tasted the same too, a real shame since Ålesund is a fishing port with dozens of trawler's based there, the availability...of fresh fish shouldn't be a problem. I had a chicken burger, the chicken wasn't a fillet it was some kind of processed mystery meat in the shape of a chicken fillet. I won't even mention the kids meals, they weren't good, my kids didn't eat them. The soft drinks were by Norwegian standards expensive, for the price I would have expected 500ml not the 250ml serving with excessive ice we received. The food was cheap so I shouldn't have expected much, I thought it could have been an alternative to Egon, it wasn't, as a family restaurant it leaves a lot to be desired. They did have friendly staff, they should all do themselves a favour and find a better restaurant to work in.More

Family of 2 kids and 2 adults. Ordered spicy hot wings for appertizer. Not spicy and extremely dry. The kids burger was tasty, the same with the chicken burger. The bbq ribs were overcooked and had no texture and were tasteless. But by adding bbq...served with the ribs they were ok overall. Disapointed with the softdrinks. Ordered a coke, a fanta and a Sprite. The coke and fanta came in glasses filled with ice. Would guess about 15 cl of liquid, but sprite came in bottle 30 cl. Price: 50,-. When we conplained to the waiter, she said it was a new practice at the restaurant with cola and fanta. After tasting it, i have a suspicion they are pouring it from 1,5 liter plastic bottles and not a glass bottle that was pictured on the menu.. Poor service and you had to tip in advance before putting in orders….More

popped by for a quick after training beer. a nice shaded outdoor seating on a pedestrianised street allowed me to sit and watch the world go by. after a beer a quick wander around the block im search of a restaurant brought me back to...the happy elefante for dinner i am not usually one to pick ribs from a menu, as more often than not i end up disappointed either by tenderness or by lack of meat. this restaurant did not disappoint on either and with fries and side included the price was very fair. with interesting sounding burgers on the menu and a few nights left in town i may well be back!More

We were six friends who wanted to Get some food after a long day. We saw this resturant on Google and it looked really Nice. After meeting the straff (who where very silent and didn’t help Much) we ordered. we ordered Three tikka masala burgers,...One pulled pork and One spicy burger. After a long time we finally got our food. First of all the portions were SO SMALL, compered to the expensive price But it looked good so i was excited to try. When we started eating all of us noticed that the burgers were completely cold. It wasn’t WARM AT ALL. But all of us was starved out so we are it anyways (because we didn’t want to wait for new food) One of my friends got their order wrong aswell, and the tikka masala burger didn’t have enough mest at all. I payed 167 kr and got about three chicken bites on my burger. To sum up i was very dissapointed and i will never come here again and i will never reccomand tgis place ever.More

Its a pub with a good variety of beers. The walls are covered with americana memorabilia. It's a good ambient for friends or co-workers. Tried the burger with blue cheese. Different and good. Would try other varieties too.

Good service with friendly people and good atmosphere. The burger with blue cheese on the other hand was well done and dry, and probably deep fried first before it was grilled. It fell apart before eating it. The mayonnaise coming with the fries was dry...and with a crust on top, like it had been standing all day.More
