We had lunch on a busy Saturday in the summer. Almost all tables outside were taken, so we found a quiet corner table inside.

It took some time to get the food, probably due to all the guest they had to serve. They gave us some popcorn as a treat, while we waited.

I had the poke bowl with chicken, it was very tasty! My husband had the hamburger. He asked to get regular fries instead of sweet potato fries, which resulted in him getting both on his plate, so the portion was huge, but very good.

All in all, we like this restaurant and will come back. The servers are friendly and service minded. The price level is not too bad, either, for Norway.

Walking along the pier gives you a whole lot of dining options. We stopped by "The Sense" and that was for sure not a bad choice. We were taken to a table and the menus arrived immediately. After some few minutes we ordered our drinks and food. There are quite a few great options in the menu but we landed on "spare ribs" and "lamb carret".

We waited for some 20-30 minutes for the food (which is very reasonable, at least a busy Saturday evening). The waiter came back after a while to check we were fine - and for sure we were! As a joke I told the waiter the corn pure disappeared too quickly and asked if I could have some refill. She said "yes, absolutely" and came back with refill. Great service!!! The sweet potato fries also did it. The ribs had a lot of meat and the meat was so tender and well grilled. The lamb carret was also fantastic. Perfectly cooked and tasty.

We highly recommend this place. We'll be back!

There is no doubt about it - The Sense is best place in Tønsberg!
The most incredible thing is that it shifts from cozy and chill lunch place into vivid reastaurant in the evening and after that into crazy good party place.
Doesn't matter what time - there is always good atmosphere and excellent service!
