I have been here many times. If you want cheap but good pizza and a good selection of quality beer, this is the place to go. However, the interior is not the nicest, and the place could use a makeover. The crowd is mostly students and it can be quite noisy at times

This restaurant is in the Bergen University area. We went there on a recommendation made by a professor of the university.

As many restaurants in Norway, you have to go to the desk and ask yourself for the meals and drinks you want. Then, a server brings the food and drinks you asked for.

The pizza my wife asked for was excellent, so was my shrimps pasta and my fish soup.

The restaurant has an excellent reputation, so it was really crowded which is a good sign when you are not from the place.

This is the place to go if you are looking for one of the best ratio $/quality of food in town. Quite affordable according to the Norway standards.

We where looking for an affordable place in bergen for our camping stayover and this place was perfect! You order at the desk, student style, free ice cold water fountain. Food was really good!

I live in Bergen and have been here many, many times. They have a very nice beer collection (including many good Norwegian beers) and a very decent food menu (try the lamb-burger or one of the pizzas). Additionally, they have lower prices than most other Cafes in Bergen.
Not hip and upscale, but relaxing and cosy. They do not play music so an exellent place to meet and talk!

I am living in Bergen and have visited this cafe at least 30 times during the last five years. You can order a pizza for around 80-120 NOK, which is about the lowest you can expect to pay for a good pizza in Norway. And the pizza is great. I have tried other dishes too, and they are all reasonably priced (but not very special): This place is all about pizza (and beer), and this review is made under the assumption that you are going to order the pizza as well. The place is really crowded and almost always pretty full, but it is rear not to get a table if you are not too picky about where to sit (if you are more than 2 people, however, seating could sometimes be a problem). The service is mostly absent and the place is generally rusty and worn out, but this just adds to the laidback atmosphere. Go here for an excellent pizza, great selection of beer, and the laidback atmosphere, but don't expect anything beyond that.
