We have dined here now 3 times on our trip to Mandal this year. Wife loves the salad with Scampi and I can not get away from the Marna Tapas. All in all a good stop for food, view, Carlsburg beer and good service.

Description
Marna Café is on the waterfront in Mandal. The restaurant has outside seating throughout the summer, both on a barge on the river and on the quayside terrace. The bar has possibly the largest selection of drinks in town, and the food menu is a crossover between American and Cajun. We can also offer a range of tapas dishes. The bestselling “Marna Burger” is a must-try classic! During the summer season there is outdoor entertainment from various artists, and the restaurant is also a great place to drop in for lunch when you’re in town. You can moor your boat right on the doorstep!
