Extraordinary view of the city and lovely place to enjoy a coffee or a beer. If it is not cloudy you can view the city and the ships.

We went here a nice afternoon. Ordered burger and club sandwich plus local beer. Food was ok (not super, not bad) but the whole place was overtaken / dominated by tourists. Not against tourist, but too much. Sorry.

A very scenic walk up the stairs. But once you reach the top hold on to your wallet. Everything seams a bit over priced up there. This is something we could understand if there was a logistic challenge. How ever it is accessible by car, all the way to the door. So shape up your business model, and maybe the... More

Simple food of good quality. Also some vegetarian options. But the views beat it all! Taking the steps is to be respected, if you don't want to, it is easily accessible by car.

walk the +400 stairs to this restaurant with a great view over Alesund and the surrounding islands. Nice service, good coffee and cakes etc. A bit noisy in the evening and a rather cold atmoshere.

At the end of the climb, its worth going in for a meal or refreshment, (you desperately need the toilet break as well). We had cakes and soft drinks, both reasonably priced, but when I looked at the menu (just for curiosity, and something to keep in mind for next time) I found their prices at the upper range of...

We were doing a road trip round western Norway and stopped here for tea. This restaurant is fantastic, the food was delicious with a varied menu - we had lasagne and chips. It is all reasonably priced, 2 drinks and 2 meals were 390 Norwegian krona. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The best bit though was the view,... More

Most people go to this place for enjoying the magnificent view. In this case, I found it an 'add-on', as i focused on the food served. We had a seafood buffet, which is one of the best I ever had. It contained both cold and warm foods, including fish soup. The selection of cold food was formidable, crabs of various... More
