“If you have to heat in Norway, you can go there...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 December 2013 via mobile

Ok, if you travel to Norway for the food there is something seriously wrong with you. Restaurants, or should I say " food places" are extremely overpriced, food is mostly " ready made" and Norwegian specialities are.... How should I say... More than an acquired taste.... Let's face it it is usually not good and very expensive. So what makes this chain different? Well don't get me wrong it is still way too overpriced, I doubt they cook much from scratch in the kitchen, but the quality is good and the choice is large and continental... So if you need some food in Ålesund, go there, it is better than spending a fortune for a horrible burger at Jaffs!

“A okay option in Ålesund”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2013

We ate here last night in the restaurant that was voted Egon of the year 2012. Having eaten at two other branches of Egon elsewhere in Norway in the past week and ordering the same dishes we were wondering if this would in some way be better than the others. It actually wasn't any different, the food was equally good and the atmosphere the same. This the first time I have had an issue with the service however. Despite pointing to the menu when ordering, I was charged the wrong price for the kids drinks from the kids menu and was given a starter size of fish soup instead of a main course size. The portion sizes are fairly generous, so for those on a budget it is worth noting that the light meals are sufficient for a dinner unless you are very hungry or have a big appetite. Althouh it is tasty in Egon, there are much better fish soups to be had in Ålesund.
