Loved this place by the water. We had a shared menu, and it was so good! spareribs were a bit dry, but everything else was amazing. Chicken satay, salmon sashimi, marrokansk biff was just great. Also had some nice coctails!

They have an interesting, not too long menu, varied and With prices not too steep for Norway. Had the Phad Thai which was lovely, others had beef salad and Trout salad and were equally satisified.
