Nice dinner but there was very little special about this place. If you are a local this is probably a big change of pace, but for an American tourist like myself, this was very similar to many chain steakhouses in the US, with slightly different style to the food. Nothing wow'd.

Terrible restaurant with low quality considering the price. Plastic karaf for water, no wine testing & the wine was pored in the bar instead of by the table. Out of a bottle bad bearnaise sauce. Surprising for a steak house :( it couldn't be that difficult to have home made sauce!? Strange style of ordering system that you fill in... More

Tender beef filet, grated potatos and nice pepper sauce is one of my favourites at Big Horn Ålesund. Service minded staff is also a plus!

During our stay in Alesund we ate in this restaurant twice. Both times were great. Very friendly staff and very clear on allergens in their food. Food was tasty and well presented.

It was a decent tasty meal, good atmosphere, relatively poor value, everything slightly overcooked, and, alas, dismal service (be ready for looooong waits). The Big Horn is part of an apparently popular chain in Norway and I understand it is owned by an American who transplanted and adapted the "steakhouse" concept to Scandinavia. I happen to be American and a... More

Brilliant service and waitresses with a personality! Had a laugh and a relaxing time choosing what I wanted. Food came quickly and it was cooked perfectly. Great selection of wines as well. I'll be back! 🏃

Arrived Alesund in the evening and it seems everywhere is fully booked. Walked around and finally find a table for two. Good steak and ribs and the price is on high side. The onion ring is nice and not too oily. Fantastic!

For a change from fish we visited Big Horn Steak House in Bergen and were impressed so went to the Alesund restaurant later on our trip. Just as good as Bergen

I took a sinderloin steak with garlic bread and sliced and fried potatoes. Food was ok. This restaurant has no wifi, which was a small disadvantage for me.
