“Great food, average ambience”
Reviewed 26 June 2014

The fish is really good and fresh. I would really recommend the cod in curry sauce which is wonderful. When it comes to the ambience and the service, there is nothing wrong, but theres is nothing special either. But because the fish is so good and fresh, I rate this as a very good restaurant.

“As fresh as one can get .... fantastic fish meal and great service”
Reviewed 13 January 2014

This is my second time here. First time they had a chef from south in Norway, and the restaurant was new it seemed. We were there for a business lunch, and were advised to the "chambre separe" on 1. floor. We were people from several places in Europe and we all agreed this was a fantastic meal. The visitors from Belgium, who I believe we can call "spoiled", were truly surprised. We had a lot of small fish dishes, and for me I believe it was my best meal ever. Last week I visited again, out of season, the restaurant was actually closed. We didn't know and enter the now mix of seafood shop and restaurant and were of course disappointed, remembering the meal from last time. As we speak with the owner, he understand we are hungry and offer us a meal anyway. “Would you like some fresh cod, I could bring you in some minutes?”, and of course we said “Yes!”. Very sporty and the food was very good, and the cod, as good as it possibly gets.

“Good food and ambience”
Reviewed 27 October 2013 via mobile

We ate lunch there and it was very good value. We went again for dinner and they have a buffet dinner with torr fish as the main dish. It was well patronised and we tried the crabs. They were good as was the fish tongue dish. The fish soup with mussels was very hit and delicious, together with olive bread.
