Very good place for fish, especially bacalao. They have many sorts of bacalao, I ordered the average one, the rest of my party ordered others, but all were satisfied.

The speciality of this restaurant is international types of baccalao. Probably one of the best in Norway. And the location of the restaurant is just fantastic overlooking the inner part of the harbours as well as you at the same time can see the sunset in the Ocean. I have been a freequen visitor in this restaurant, private as in international business,. and have never been dissiponted.

The food was excellent. The place came highly recommended by friends. Suggest to dinner just before sunset. The view of Alesund is to die for.
Don't forget to order "The best soup in town"
