We ate at C & C on Saturday, November 17th. We had made reservations earlier in the week, and were a bit disappointed when we saw the outside of the restaurant as we toured the city early on Saturday morning. From the outside we had the impression of an Indian cafe (which is fine if that's what's on for the evening). With the tables set on Saturday night the restaurant made a much better impression.
Having lived in Norway for many years I know that restaurant service here can be very sketchy, but the service at C & C was great: prompt, patient and polite. The menu was varied; there were so many things that sounded good so it wasn't easy to make a decision. There were four of us - two teenagers and two adults - and we all enjoyed our main courses, desserts (the teenagers raved about the dark chocolate mousse) and beverages. If you like beer, we highly recommend the local Slogen (especially the darker ale) from a micro-brewery. The wine selection is large and the prices weren't bad (for Norway). I ordered 1/2 a carafe of an Italian wine and was a bit taken back when the first - and then the second - taste was off. The waitress didn't put up a stink, removed the carafe, and brought an excellent replacement.
After dinner, we headed out into the November dark, not minding at all the wind and whipping rain of Ålesund after such a nice dining experience.
