“Average - but better...”
Reviewed 8 March 2014 via mobile

Located in the middle of the pedestrian shopping street of Kristiansand. Light and friendly mood. Somewhat loud ambience and just average food. Ok to drop by - but will not be a super memorable experience.

Thank jpskaar

“In the middle of the pedestrian street”
Reviewed 5 November 2013

It is a great great place to meet friends. Its location in the middle of the pedestrain street makes it one of the best places to "see and be seen", and where your friends always pass by. Good service and good food.

“A Shelter from the Sun”
Reviewed 26 July 2013

Having walked for half an hour in downtown Kristiansand, searching for a place where we could avoid the blazing sun, we opted for "Hos Naboen", located in the midst of this city's main shopping street, Markens. We were there only to order coffee and we found a nice spot in the shade of their tarpaulin.

We wanted ice-coffee, but since the place insisted on 60 kr. for an ice-coffe drink, we ordered two lattes and a cortado. It took extremely long time for them to make the drinks, but we were in no hurry and enjoyed sitting in the shade on such a warm day. When my boyfriend wnet to use their toilets, he was asked on the way back to bring the drinks for us. That was a bit unusual and not so easy to do without a tray, but that was OK. Aparently they use very good quality coffe there, but they should definitely work on their milk steaming. For us, Oslo-people, a 2 millimeter foam does not count as a foam at all.

Since we did not get to taste any of the food items on the menu, I'd conculde that it's not a bad place, especially teking into consideration the placement, the tarpaulin and the coffee.

“Terribly bad”
Reviewed 8 February 2013

The restroom was really dirty, sink had dirt left from many weeks. Food was under all decency - the fish smelled raw fish, vegetables burned and potatoes not cooked through. The service was clumsy and confused. Tables not cleaned off and trash from previous guests still left on tables even after cleaning the table. A really bad choice of restaurant - wouldn't recommend it to anyone!
