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.
