Description: Sjohuset Restaurant has for nearly two decades been a landmark among Kristiansand's finest restaurants. Here you're served fish and shellfish of supreme quality, lobster fresh from our tank - and a good selection for those who prefer meat. Idyllic location on the waterfront makes a perfect setting for a memorable meal. On the outdoor restaurant you can enjoy a full meal or have a refreshment in the evening sun. Open (kitchen):15.00-23.00. From April open from 11.00

The setting of this restaurant / bar is splendid. The food is very nice and the atmosphere sitting outside is nice. As stated in other reviews the prices of drinks and food is very expensive compared with most other countries in Europe. But if you are willing to spend some money this is a very nice restaurant to stay at. Make sure to make a reservation if you want to sit next to the waterfront.

This seaside restaurant has a great location, in the outdoor section you literally sit on top of the water. The menu is mainly seafood, and of good quality. The prices are somewhat high (even for Norway) - and for a 0.5 litre of beer the asking price is NOK 81,-. But as long as the view is superb, and the food of good quality - it is a nice choice on a special occations.

Sjøhuset has a great location, and the place serves what I so far find to be the best fish soup in town! Really nice staff, and on a sunny day the outdoor restaurant is a very good alternative.

PS! The large portion of the soup is really LARGE. If you´re really, really hungry - go for this. But if not, the normal portion is more than enough. The seafood platter (new 2012) looks really delicious, but haven´t tried it (yet.....).

Sjøhuset seems to "deliver the goods" still after many years in business. I prefer going here instead to the more busy places around the fish market a few minutes walk away.

Go here for the food and the location. Not much more to say, is there?

We recently had a day in port in Kristiansand on Holland America's Rotterdam. After spending a pleasant morning walking around Dyreparken, we stopped by Sjohuset.

We had fish and chips that were among the best we've ever eaten. We also had the local light beer which was delicious. As you'll see, the views from the outside dining area are outstanding.

What more can you ask for - excellent food, good beer, a laid back atmosphere, friendly waitstaff, and outstanding views?
