Description: The name "Naboen" means neighbor, and this is just what the Naboen Pub & Restaurant is, a friendly and inviting place to eat and drink. Hospitality is job one here, and the Scandinavian kitchen, staff and culinary tradition are representative of Norway. The food is all made from scratch, as it would have been two hundred years ago - no processed ingredients allowed. Naboens' menu is a culinary delight, one heaped in Nordic tradition, and best of all moderately priced. Guests here partake of Norwegian food and spirits as they should be enjoyed, Bergen style.

“Great food and atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2014

We haad a 3 course dinner here. Great starter, main course and a terracotta that melting on your tongue. This small restaurant in this back street is just a hidden gem. Origginally it is a Svedish restaurant that is why it have the name "the neighbor". I recommed this restaurant for everybody.
And the prices are reasonable too, even in Norway!

“Best in Bergen”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 April 2014

Best restaurant in Bergen without a doubt. Charming place with good location (centre of Bergen, close to theater) and good service (waiter was explaining us, what we are eating and how is it prepared). Best salmon which I ever ate - fresh and delicious.

“Regular restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2014

Whenever I'm going out to eat in Bergen, a safe bet is Nabokjelleren (the downstairs area). With two different places to eat; a restaurant where one can reserve a table upstair, and a "come as you are" downstairs. The downstairs has a relaxed ambiance and good food, for a reasonable price. Also a good selection of beer. Its also centrally located in Bergen, close to the theatre.

“Absolutely amazingly delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 March 2014

Walking into this place my first thought was that it would be perfect for a romantic meal, the feeling was quite cosy and intimate with the smaller tables with candles and with the whole place only seating around 30 or so. I ordered the smoked grouse breast for a starter whereas my colleague went with the "gubbröra". The grouse was so tender I hardly had to cut into it and the lingonberries were a perfect match with it. As a main I went for the oven baked turbot with beet risotto, spring onions and creamed mussel sauce. The layout of the food was beautiful. (I would share a pic but it seems I do not know how to do so on TA any longer) And the taste... Well all I can say is wow. It was delicious. After this the mint chocolate tart with yogurt ice cream was a small let down even though that was good as well. And there is more good news to come! Considering we are talking about a restaurant in Norway, it was very reasonably priced. If you find yourself in Bergen you have to go and give this place a try (you might want to reserve a table to be on the safe side) and I guarantee you won't be disappointed!
