Description: Engelsviken Brygge Fiskerestaurant (Fish restaurant) opened its door for the first time in May of 1995, and our speciality has always been fish. Popular with the locals, the restaurant has become popular for tourists from areas such as Oslo, Son and Indre ostfold (Inner ostfold). The restaurant has a pub on the first floor, where several concerts are held yearly. Why not come here to kick back your feet after work and enjoy everything the pub and restaurant have to offer.

“Go for the fish/shellfish dishes!”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

Really nice fish soup and clams, for some reason the kids wanted garlic bread and pizza - the garlic bread was nice but the pizza was below average: Looked like something they just had taken out of a carton in the freezer. We sat outside in the sun, the restaurant could do with better parasols/ shading of some sort because it was really hot. The queue of people outside became longer and longer so this is obviously a popular place, shading or not! Would return for the fish dishes and the nice fish shop on the back of the building (Brødrene Skogen).

“Charming place with very good seafood”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

Is located in the local harbor. It is a fish restaurant with an excellent fish soup. I recommend it.
During the summer, they have also concerts with some of the best Norwegian singers.
Visit this place if you are in the area.

“Food of the Vikings. Mmmmm.”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

Our host asked a very practical question. Would we like to spend the day in Oslo, or visit the fishing villages along the fjords. Fishing villages along the fjords won out. We stopped at Engelsviken Brygge, which was a charming restaurant in a small fishing village, largely unsullied by commercial enterprises and quiet enough for us to sit for a long time and enjoy the view. There is indoor and outdoor seating, and a deck that overlooks the fjords. Fishing ships bob up and down along the small harbor. The waitresses speak excellent English, so even if you don't speak Norwegian you can inquire after the cuisine.

The salmon fish soup is the best fish soup I have ever had, ever. I tried to eat it slowly, rather than lap it up like a drunken pig. When I got to the last spoonful, my heart sank. When? Where, if ever...would I ever have soup this good again? Food of the Vikings. No wonder they had enough energy to conquer the world.

“One of the two best fishsoups I've ever tasted!”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

We ordered the famous fishsoup for apetizer, and it was as delicious as we had been told it would be. Our two girls (6 and 7 years old) also loved it.We ordered some hot pastadish as main course. Too much food, couldn't finish it. Next time I'll just order the fishsoup as main course, no apetizer.
