When in Norway, do as the Norwegians do and have a bit of whale......couldn't eat a whole one though.
Found Jarlen Restaurant from a web search and the previous reviews seemed OK. The restaurant is just on the edge of the city centre in a downtown area slap bang opposite the prison.....which just adds to the charm.
The restauranteur could not do enough for us. He explained the menu very carefully and explained what was typically Norwegian. The service was quick, the atmosphere pleasant and when the food came, it came in good sized portions. Whilst we were there, a number of locals came in and eat there which is always a good sign.
The whale was excellent......the beef was also excellent.....and the tea comes in a proper tea pot.
I cannot fault this restaurant - and the bill by Norwegian standards was very cheap
