A small restaurant 12 mins walk from town centre, fairly basic until it comes to the food. Let yourself be surprised! Quality food, rich servings (ask for doggy bag!) and very reasonable prices. Great service. Been before, will come again!

Ok, the guest room has the charme of a trucker cantine which is –to be honest- not the one that makes me want to come again. But the fish dishes ares interesting and local beer (1839) for 60.- kr is almost free for Norway. So, yes, we see you again.

This places serves simple honest food based on traditional ingredients updated to a modern style. The food is inexpensive and better than most other restaurants in this region. Five stars is too much for this hopeless location (the view is a parking lot), but this was probably the best food I had at a restaurant in Arendal this summer.

If you want good food to a very reasonable price, this is the place! We were really impressed by the high quality of the food and the service. Our kids got a free gift each and we had a sweet rhubarb soup for free.

Excellent, traditional Norwegian food. Only five or so different dishes, but all of them looked great.

Have had lunch here many times and the food is most excellent! Freshly made often with ingredients from the front "garden" in the summer and at really good prices for Norway (around 100-130 nok for lunch). Have never been here for dinner serving, so can't really comment, but can't imagine it being anything less than the lunch they serve. Sadly... More

As the saying goes; "when in Rome, do like the Romans"; a piece of advice relevant for finding a good meal with value for money. Well, applying that in Arendal, will take you to "Gørr Go Mad". They serve very good healty everyday food at a reasonable price in a homely atmosphere. It is not the place with expensive wine... More
