great service, great meal. very atmospheric. the reindeer was cooked to perfection, as was the lamb. lamb very game-like taste, different & good!! try the house wine, put together for them by their own winemaker, it was better than the aussie shiraz. wine is expensive, of course, but we thought the food was good value. MAKE A RESERVATION if you want to have your choice of the whole menu, they were out of a few of the starters (fresh!), and the sister fish restaurant was fully booked both nights we were here.
these guys use only fresh, local stuff, and the quality of the food in the supermarkets (and the choice in the international markets) here is better than it has been since we began our trip in bergen, so restaurants have no excuses to serve bad food!
the waiter was a GEM. he used to work on cruise ships, so is friendly, efficient, and makes you feel at home. a world traveler himself, he is a font of information and sympathetic to other travelers' needs and questions.
i would definitely come back to this restaurant!

Biffhuset (literally: steak house) is a gastro-pub-like steakhouse restaurant located within the old establishment Skarven, which also houses a cafe, a seafood restaurant, a bar and more. I went there with a group of colleagues, and we were all served very good no-nonsense meat, with good wine and a really excellent selection of craft beers (of which I am a particular fan).

I had the house specialty kid goat. This was a huge meal of a whole thigh of really tenderly cooked goat kid, with oven baked vegetables and a red wine sauce. It was served without frills, but extremely savoury and tasty, leaving your mouth watering. It was also big enough no starter or dessert was necessary. My colleagues also all had an excellent culinary experience.

Our waiter was very knowledgeable both when it came to the food and the selection of drinks. No complaints about the service.

I would recommend this place to anyone interested in well-served no-nonsense meat served in a relaxed atmosphere.

Located in the Skarven establishment which has a bar and another restaurant, this is the meat restaurant. We went there on a Sunday when they also have a fish option. We had the soup and the stock fish "royale". Both were good. The fish was a big portion, lathered in bacon bits and cream; really a corpulent desire. The atmosphere is nice with old wood beams on the ceiling and friendly waitstaff. They serve the locally brewed Mack beer.

Grilled stockfish was supposed to be the delicate specialty. What we got was fatty grilled fish with loads of fried bacon. Waitresses were unattentive.
For the steep bill, this was lousy quality!
