The location of this restaurant is excellent. Close to the seaside in the hart of Haugesund. We were a party of 20. The meal was served to all of us within 30 minutes and it tasted wonderful:) A specially the Angus burger. The staff could put som more effort in being smiling and positive.

A busy Saturday evening... Prebooked table, but needed to be relocated indoor as we intended to have dinner. It took a while, and when we decided to leave, we suddenly got offered an indoor table. The rest of the evening we were fine, very good kitchen (the halibut was excelkent).

There is no non-smoking area and people in Haugesund smoke more than anyone in the western world. The menu is the same all year round

Wanted to have a good fish soup and couldn't have chosen better, followed by scallops presented beautifully and delicious. Husband also had the fish soup then cod which was voted the best he had had in three weeks spent in Norway. Great venue overlooking the quay, staff friendly and helpful. Cost reasonable for Norway

Best restaurant visit so far in Haugesund. Somewhat pricey - so are most restaurants in this area of town. Halibut was very good, yummy beurre blanc and perfectly cooked asparagus. However service was too slow. My main arrived in ok time, but as the restaurant became busier (on a Monday) they seemed undermanned. Also - as you often see in... More

A small and homely restaurant on Haugesund's attractive waterfront walkway, the staff were pleasant and the prices were not too prohibitive for the UK traveller. The Burger was excellent as was the beer that accompanied it and it was well-suited to dining as a couple or with friends.
