“Gorgeous fish cakes and excellent service”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

Arriving cold and wet after a very chilly cruise around the fjord, we badly wanted something warm to eat. The outdoor tables and chairs were wet after the downpour but a charming young man (with excellent English) turned up the heaters, dried the chairs and informed us they would be open shortly and we were welcome to wait. In a very few minutes be brought us the menus and seemed pleased when we ordered the home-made fish cakes with mashed potatoes (with a soft drink thrown in, a good bargain in this notoriously expensive country). The meal was simple but piping hot, the fishcakes delicious (he told us the kind of fish but it meant nothing to us) and the mashed potatoes to die for! So happy were we that, at the end, we could not resist ordering a glass of the local schnapps. We would certainly return and try out some of the other fish on offer. It would be hard to find anything fresher since the fish market is immediately next door. Highly recommended.

“Juiciest scallops EVER”
Reviewed 1 May 2014 via mobile

I went to kristiansand visiting my boyfriend last summer. We went down to the fish market and had lunch there. Out of diet reason, i chose the salad with scallops. Can't remember the name of the dish, but the taste and the texture and the perkiness of the scallops... Man!! It still makes me drew when I think of it. Definitely recommend! And the area around it is nice too.

“Desent place to eat.”
Reviewed 25 July 2013 via mobile

We were four friends eating Nachos, a burger, seafood salad and a chicken sandwich. The salad was a bit tame but good. The burger was average, nothing spesial. The sandwich and the nachos was very good. The place and service was great. Recomended!

“Food Miles”
Reviewed 9 July 2013

Being right next to the door to the fish market and in spitting distance of the sea, you have to think that the nets land straight into the kitchen. I stopped here one afternoon for a late lunch. It was rainy but we opted to stay outside under the canvas. The outside seating area is really cosy with the patio heaters and great for people-watching around the small quay area. I had the creamy fish soup that was really filling. My friend had the shrimps and bread. Being Norwegian and local he knows a thing or two about seafood, I knew I was in a decent place. The service and food was very good.

“Expensive but good atmosphere”
Reviewed 8 June 2013

The food was not whorth it's price. The beer was expensive. The service took a long time even if the resturant was not full. But when the sun is shining in the summer evening it is a fantastic place to sit down.
