“Good place to hang out at”
Reviewed January 11, 2014

I have been here a couple of times while waiting for my plane to leave. It is a mix of restaurant/café/night club - but if you´re just looking for something to eat or drink and kill an hour our two it´s a good place and they have free Internet access as well if you have brought your laptop.

“very good pizza; very poor service”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

What other reviewers have noted here is exactly right: mismatch between service standard and food standard.
Part of the problem is that the place tries to be (needs to be?) several things at once: bar; discotheque; pizzeria. When we arrived a couple were eating in a corner; four regulars were exchanging banter at a table nearer to the bar. We assumed one of them was staff. Wrong. They all left over the course of 5-10 minutes; the bar tender appeared from the kitchen to clear their table and we had to ask for a menu. Another 5-10 minutes later one of us walked over to the kitchen door to ask for service. We then had to come to the bar to place our orders, even though these were noted on a slip of paper. No one asked what we wanted to drink. Another knock on the door; no bottle of wine available; only by the glass (75 NOK). Free tap water, upon request. The pizza quality (and speed of delivery--no problem with service then) made up for the quirkiness of the rest.
