There are only few restaurants opened on sunday in Alesund. We have made a booking before going to Lyst and we are glad we did that because it is a small bistro. The fish soup and fish dish are very nice. With our surprise, the deserts are also very good. We order choc fondu, carrot cake and vanilla ice-cream (for... More

I was there last year, we're looking for restaurant with traditional norwegian cousin but had no luck, tired after checking out of the city we found Lyst, when I tried to order bacalao they didn't had it. Disappointed because of this I took lamb. Portion was OK, served in very nice way. Local itself- nothing special, we were sitting outside... More

So me and my friend went to have lunch in this place. And my friend have had a gastric bypass so she can't eat a full portion. She asked if she could ordered a half portion, explaining her situation, that she can't eat much and it's stupid to waste food. They told her she could order a small portion but... More

Necessary to self serve at the bar for drinks and ordering. Fish dish way way too salted nearly inedible. Steak fine but at 50 dollars a plate it needs to be a lot better.

My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful lunch at Lyst while visiting Alesund on a cruise ship. Our fish soup starter was excellent and my Klippfish was very good, although a bit salty. My wife's salmon was also very good. Lunch for the two of us cost about USD 100, so it isn't cheap by any measure, but I would... More

Waited 40 minutes for my "medium raw" steak that was served over cooked and dry. After the meal it took 20 minutes before we were able to order a cup of coffee so we left to order coffee another place.

Have visited Alesund before and a must for my wife is the kitchen shop in Kongensgate! Being lunchtime we asked the shop assistant where she would eat and we fancied fish soup. Right next door she replied. So with next door we went and got the table in the window where we could people watch. Ordered fish soup (yes it's... More

Maybe because it was rainy and we were tired, we did not mind waiting for the incredible food we ate tonight. About once every five years I come across a meal I would rank in the top ten of my life, this was one of them. My wife had the top sirloin steak with potatoes and veggies. She remarked that... More
