I visited this place for relaxing with a couple of beers. I appears to be nice place. They also serve food which I did not have so I have no comment on the food. One thing I noticed was that one women was sitting inside smoking on her electronic cigarette without being adressed by the staff. I thought all smoking,... More

This place was right by the river the, and the atmosphere where great. They had a good selection of beef and fish dishes. Staff was serviceminded but a bit slow, could be because the restaurant was packed.

Had dinner here with a friend, lots of fellow diners and a nice ambiance. The starters were excellent, would recommend the fish soup or the tempura. Both had mussels for main, very nice. Fantastic cappuccinos. The only negative I can think of is the speed of the service, the food came too fast and there was no time to breathe... More

The location of this restaurant is excellent. Close to the seaside in the hart of Haugesund. We were a party of 20. The meal was served to all of us within 30 minutes and it tasted wonderful:) A specially the Angus burger. The staff could put som more effort in being smiling and positive.

A busy Saturday evening... Prebooked table, but needed to be relocated indoor as we intended to have dinner. It took a while, and when we decided to leave, we suddenly got offered an indoor table. The rest of the evening we were fine, very good kitchen (the halibut was excelkent).

There is no non-smoking area and people in Haugesund smoke more than anyone in the western world. The menu is the same all year round

Urrangen, Informasjonssjef at Brasserie Brakstad, responded to this review

Dear Accidental_tourist_p thank you for giving us feedback regarding your visit at Brasserie Brakstad. Smoking is prohibited inside our restaurant but is allowed outside. According to local legislations provided by Haugesund County we cannot have full-height walls sorrounding the outside patio. This, and a cherful help for the never stopping wind in Haugesund usually gives good air conditioning. The times... More
