This is a great place down by the water...there are actually 3 restaurants in the building and all are wonderful. Fresh fish and seafood and a nice variety to choose from. Norway is an expensive place so be prepared to pay $60 per person.

Enjoyed a glass of wonderful IPA. It was expensive but really worth it. The atmosphere was nice and cosy and the staff was very helpful.

If you want to get in from the cold, and warm up by the fire with a Mack beer, this is the place to go. Nice selection of Norwegian beers, in a cool nautical themed bar.

Not breakfast, not cheap, unless very late, as well into the day, and/or you are so well off that it would be considered cheap. But they have really good dinners. Recommended.

Hi You cannot eat breakfast there. Although the restaurant is expensive, it was worth every penny, the food was excellent with great wines and perfect view.
