Friendly greeting and good service. It was a quiet night as it was mid-week. We both had the lamb as recommended by the waitress and were not disappointed. It was cooked perfectly and very tasty.

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!
