Nice interior, fantastic food. Friendly staff. A bit expensive, but totally worth it.

“Fantastic food, great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 September 2010

My wife and I are 'regulars' at Smauet, as we had our first date here in 2001 and greatly appreciate coming back. Over the years we have had different experiences, always good, but we now had a super experience (and yes, we do eat a lot at Michelen restaurants etc) and want to share it.

On a Saturday night we had a 4 course meal, starting with soup, then cod, then lamb, then cheese/panacotta, with an accompanying wine menu. The food and the wine was just awesome (each wine nicely tailored to the dishes, and liberally served)! The Chef is trained at Norway's top restaurant, and he shared his insights on cooking cod (that we very much appreciated).

The service was very attentive, and given the price level in Norway, we had a great deal (less than 1800 NOK, which was great value for money). Our biggest question is why there isn't more guests in summertime in this pearl of a restaurant.

We learned that the kitched had recently gotten a new master-chef that had improved the menu compared to last year (they had a period with less successful master-chefs, but this is definitely over).

Look forward to coming back :-)

“Best Restaurent in Bergen Norway”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 March 2008

While on business during Easter week in Bergen, we found many restuarants closed. Happily we asked for a dinner recommendation from the desk clerk who sent to around the corner from the Radisson Hotel Norge to a small white house. My companion and I had one of the 10 ten dinners on our lives at the Smauet Mat & Vinhus. The service was attentive and helpful and the waiter provided excellent recommendations. As each delicious course arrived, the waiter provided a description of the fresh ingredients in the dish. The menu choices included, a 7 course selection, a 4 course selection, and a a three course selection, plus starters and main dishes, and desserts. We wanted to return the following night but the restaurant was closed for Easter. The waiter provided the names and directions to two nearby restaurants to us to try.
