“Don't go gere for Spareribs”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2012 via mobile

Appearrantly there chef doesn't know how to make spareribs, you could just pickup the bone and the meat would stay on you're plate. And the waitress didn't like her job it seemed.

“Stick to fish”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2012

Easily accessible with parking in front of the retaurant. Didn't like the atmosphere: the place had a Norwegians-trying-to-be-American feel... why would you want to do that? Food was average to okay, but extremely expensive for what you got. We ate here specifically to have meat, but on hindsight should have stuck to what the Norwegians do best.

“Least favourite restaurant in Alesund so far..”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2012

The restaurant is in a very convenient location near Thon and Radisson, as well as the pier for the boat across to Hareid. So for that it is a common choice for many people.

However for me the restaurant interior is not so nice, and the quality of the food is not as good as I have experienced in the rest of Alesund. I had the scampi which was a bit tough and chewy, then the steak which was overcooked and not very flavoursome.

The service was pretty good there, but the food needs to be a bit better if I am to return there again.

“Never Again !!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2011

Have been here a number of times with colleagues, this time went with my wife and it was a complete nightmare. Waited almost one hour for food, then it was delivered cold. Steak not cooked as requested. All food returned and then it was same food reheated and returned, predictably steak was then as tough as old boots.
Service terrible and food even worse...Never, ever again will I visit this place

“Average - Nothing Fantastic”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 23, 2011

The restaurant is located in a good location on the pier in Ålesund, the restaurant has nice decor and is large in size. The food is average for the price. The menu is a good size with a good selection of starters and mains. The service is average, not bad but nothing special although it was a slow service. I feel for the price you pay for the meal the quality should be much better.
