We had booked dinner here one Friday night. They serve traditional Norwegian cooking and they do it well. Friendly and helpful staff made it a perfect evening. The food was good, the restaurant rustic and the staff excellent. Situated just in the middle of the city centre on Torgallmenningen. We'll be back.

Thank Jarlen2014

We met with some friends from our time at the university in the seventies. Back then we also met here. The raindeer steak I had was average. Of course it was nice to meet old friends.

Visiting Bergen meet up with some old friends at this establishment! The food, service and location is very central in midst of the city. Food was good and so was the service, however rather on the expensive side!

We had a very nice meal here. Service was great and the people were friendly. I had a chicken dish that was very tasty and nicely presented. My friend had salmon that was very good.

I visited Holbergstuen with my family last year. One of the oldest restaurants in Bergen, been around since 1927. Not so many guests at the time we visited. We chose one fish- and one meat course. The food was amazing and the staff showed excellent service.

Right in the main square. Had a very reasonable steak with chips, mushrooms, onions and sauce. Pleasant atmosphere and attentive staff.

We had the best Bergensk fish soup. It's kind of obligatory when you go to Bergen to at least have their fish soup once. Nice "old fashioned" decoration. Good service.

By God, this place has changed. It used to be a traditional, Norwegian place. It is no longer as it was. Oh, so expensive.

I think it was the best vegetarian lasagne I have eaten. We were 6 people around the table and everybody liked their food. Service was nice and smooth. Reasonable prices in a fine environment.
