Best place for having food in Ålesund. I have been there many times as quality is very good and prices are reasonable. It is a nice, cozy place in the city center. The staff are amazing, friendly and very quick. (Thank you for the service Mario, Anna, Peter and -I'm sorry- the rest who I don't know by your name).... More

The food is tasty. The room could definitely been bigger, a bit claustrophobic here when all tables are in use.

This restaurant is very busy, and only on the second day did we have dinner there. But it's worth insisting, because the food is very tasty, the menu is varied, and the service is very good. The desserts are also spectacular. The restaurant is in the central part of the city, and has tables inside and also on the sidewalk.

We visited Lyst for an early dinner and experienced a pleasant dinner with quality steaks at reasonable prices. The service was a bit busy but friendly. The restaurant has a small wine and beer list, but suitable for the food. It's a good restaurant for an uncomplicated dinner.

We reserved ahead before arriving in Alesund and made our way to Lyst just after checking in to our hotel. We ordered the salted cod (bacalao style) and the salmon which were both quite good. Definitely a lot of people coming to this place, so glad to have reserved. That said, the way we were greeted at the start was... More

We ate here without making a reservation on a Wednesday night in september at 7:30. There were still some tables left. The menu is small. We ordered the deer but there was none left. We chose the sirloin steak which was perfectly cooked. Nice choice of vegetables and delicious potatoes. Mains from 320nok. Pricy but in range with the other... More
