Description: Marna Café is on the waterfront in Mandal. The restaurant has outside seating throughout the summer, both on a barge on the river and on the quayside terrace. The bar has possibly the largest selection of drinks in town, and the food menu is a crossover between American and Cajun. We can also offer a range of tapas dishes. The bestselling “Marna Burger” is a must-try classic! During the summer season there is outdoor entertainment from various artists, and the restaurant is also a great place to drop in for lunch when you’re in town. You can moor your boat right on the doorstep!

“A great pub with food worth it's money”
Reviewed 4 May 2013

Marna's beautifully located on the water in Mandal, Norway. It's a small pub with great character and a cozy feel to it. The staff was very welcoming and their English excellent, they were happy to have a chat with a lonely foreigner in the bar for a while.

I had one of their burgers and it was excellent, prices in Norway might be sky high in general, but I felt happy paying what I did for it, that's all it takes for me to be happy.
