“fantastic gem”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

This restaurant was well worth looking for. The waitress spoke excellent English and explained all the choices on the menu. The food was very well presented and superbly cooked.starters were Moore like a main course exceptionally good value as long as you don't convert back to English money. But when on holiday who cares :-)

“Hidden Gem!”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

Not only does this place have one of the best views in Bergen overlooking the harbour and mountains, they also have an amazing asian chicken salad!
Prices are reasonable compared to other places in Bergen.
As others have mentioned, it is kind of hard to find on the 6. floor of Kloverhuset shopping centre, but well worth it when you get there.
Friendly and attentive service!
We will be back!

“Great views and good prices”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

For good food and great views over the harbour towards the Bryggen I've always favoured the Lido restaurant, but you pay fr the view,it's often crowded and the prices are - well - very Norwegian! But go round the corner to Strandgaten and into Kloverhuset (the shopping mall), take the escalator to the top and there is Vista, with, a great vista over the harbour, etc. Not crowded, lovely friendly service and pretty reasonable prices (NoKr 150 for excellent coffee and cakes for two, plus coffee refills and including a good tip, see below).
The main dishes looked good too, judging by the family group at the next table - fish for the adults and massive burgers for the kids.
All the window tables were taken when we arrived, but the waitress came over after about five minutes and asked us if we'd like to move to one as it was now free. She was really helpful and spoke excellent English - like everyone we met - and deserved the tip we left.
It's relaxed, child friendly, just not so easy to find.

“Acdeptable at Vista”
Reviewed December 4, 2012

I was attending a party here. The welcome and service was friendly and fast. The menu was a set appetizer, and buffet christimas style main dishes and desserts. The appetizer was fantastic, and gives the idea that this restaurant can make very good food when you are not there for a closed function. The buffet was OK, compared to what we paid it was absolutely ok. Atmosphere, this is inside a shopping mall, so do not expect too much in terms of the atmosphere and decorations, aceptable for what it is.
