Arriving with my wife the waiter did not want to tell us what we could eat, you`l see he said, and followed up with "use your eyes", Unpleasant waiter ( think it was the owner) from hell. Giving rude comments, and if you asked the way to the restroom he said: "at 5th floor", use the stairs. Food was below ordinary and we could not wait to get out of there. Be aware of owners mood.

We had pre-paid a 4 course dinner. It promised creamy fish soup, salmon sashimi, ovenbaked pacific cod and homemade french chocolate cake. NOTHING was fresh! The soup was what we in Norway call Toro-soup - pre-fabricated and dried ingredients. The salmon was OK - some Salma, maybe. The "ovenbaked pacific cod" was indeed made in the oven - we heard the microwave oven from the kitchen.... It was frozen re-heated. Really disappointing! The homemade french chocolate cake was probably baked from prefabricated powder - just add water.

The waiter was very laid back and on the border of being rude. The only other guest was half way into his beer - not the first that late afternoon....

I will NEVER go back!

They don't know that chocolate fondant is not just burnt muffin, the fish was too much fried, the pork was partly raw, and "wine menu with the food" was 3 identical glasses of red wine and 2 identical whites, all from cartons. Run man, RUN, do not eat here.

We ordered a pre set 4 course seafood dinner. First we were told that there is no more white wine, but we could order red wine, of which they had only one. After about 20min we got the first course. The menu said scallops, but we got canned shrimps, without any notice from the waiter. The second course was about the same disappointment. After two hours, we were still waiting for the main dish, so we left the place.

The place is rather unformal, with modern (yet a little but outdated) fornitures.

We took a 3 courses menu for 199 NOK each, and we got good fish. The meal was good and tasty, definetely good for the price.

The service was not the most professional, but friendly and pleasant.

They played nice and lively nusic while we were there.

They have an internet campaign giving a good discount (writing un july 2011), with a rather professional looking graphic. While the menu at the restaurant was made of old photocopies. Not a problem at all, just a bit weird.
