“Order the fish soup”
Reviewed August 3, 2014

Lets face it. In a tourist town with 7 restaurants, we didn't have high hopes. Brasserie Posten was a very good surprise. I did find it a little confusing as to just what it is. Is it a place for coffee and pastry? A place for a beer? A lunch place? I guess it is all three.

There are three separate seating areas. The most crowded when we were there was the outdoor front area. This didn't appeal to me at all. Yes you had a nice view of the water but you also got to content with the line to the public toilets that snaked past. If you walk through the restaurant, there is an outdoor seating area in the back. To me this is the prime area but all the shaded areas were already taken so it was inside for us. We were the only people sitting inside for awhile. The inside is simple but comfortable. Not the shabby chic, cushy comfortable but the danish, simple line comfortable.

We couldn't decide on just what to order so we ordered a variety of items along with beer. The first was the fish soup. This was the best fish soup we had on our whole trip. The broth wasn't too heavy and you could taste the herbs in it. This soup was so yummy. If I ever go back, I am just getting bowl after bowl of the soup. I am going to eat until I am soup logged. Along with the soup we got bread. I have no idea what type it was but it as good. After the soup our next courses arrived. They were a salmon salad and a plate of differently prepared salmon and sausages. We enjoyed everything except the dark sausage. We asked after we were done eating and the best we were able to understand the dark sausage included reindeer stomach along with other meats.

“Unpretentious premises - fantastic food!”
Reviewed August 3, 2014

Chose this on the basis of other reviews here and was not disappointed. An unpretentious brasserie on the edge of the harbour. Fish soup was fantastic and the veal steak the tenderest meat I've ever eaten. Fantastic collection of micro-brewery beers to choose from. Highly recommended!

“Delicioussimo!”
Reviewed June 16, 2014 via mobile

We had a fish soup and fish ragout (sorry we don't remember the name in the menu), both were norwegian specialty, and local beer named jubilee or smth. The meals were unbeatably delicious, the beer was a good combination of price and taste (with these norwegian prices it is very important).
We liked the service very much as well. The waitress was so attentive to what we wanted, so all her suggestions were right to the point. And we were impressed how many languages she spoke fluently!
Worth visiting!

“Delicious food”
Reviewed June 10, 2014

Order the hamburger, it's superb! The balcony outside is worth seeing, if the day is sunny, sit outside. They also provide blankets if you're visiting later in the evening.

“Really good”
Reviewed June 2, 2014 via mobile

I had the post burger, and it was really very tasty. A really scenic location. Service was good. Appears small, but, we had great weather and sat outside waterside.
