You cannot visit this restaurant after 7.30 PM! Never expercienced something like this anywhere else in the world. Closed, weekend, second half of August. Still summer and weekend!

In a relatively small town, this is one of the better eating joints serving good food and having a cheerful and helpful staff. The food is a little pricey, but it's decent and comes in good portions. The drinks were also nicely mixed.

In Lyst we met the biggest gap between Tripadviser reviews and reality. The food here is SO boring. The salads came within seconds from ordering and felt like a cheap diner food. Main courses felt the same (the Salmon arrived undercooked and was sent back) . All together the food here is sad.

Had a delicious lunch here on a rainy day. The atmosphere was warm and friendly. Service was good with a smile. The menu was inviting with good sandwiches (I had a good steak sandwich, other party members had a scampi sandwich and a chicken salad sandwich--all of which are highly recommended). Several people had fish options, and were very satisfied... More

I came to eat later in the evening and they informed me the kitchen was to close in half an hour's time and that they still needed to clear a table. The waiting time was short. And I ordered Torskfilet (?) which is cod in bacon. It was very good. The staff was ok too

Wonderful chicken salad. Outside eating at front and upstairs a canvas covered back terrace. Small electric heating in the 'ceiling' of the tent. (Good for smokers)

The food was great, location rather boring and the service unbelievable slow. I would recommend it for a descent lunch but don't expect too much

Lyst is very popular so book ahead if you can or go early. We sat in the 'backyard' which is an outside area at the rear of the restaurant where most of the tables are under cover and you are sheltered from the wind. The menu is fairly small but it was the best meal we had in two weeks... More

The salmon and cod dishes were excellent. The portions were also just right. The servers there were also quite nice and friendly. I found the dishes to be very expensive though. This is one of the places that is open on Sundays till 8. Since Alesund is tiny town, most places close early or don't open at all on Sundays.

Nice staff, good food at a good price. Would eat again! The potato boats with the steak had a really succulent texture and the pumpkin in it was super tasty. The salmon was perfectly cooked, enjoyed every bite! Plus there's a pokestop right there :-D
