This is a fun little restaurant close to Henrik, which is a nice combo. Very casual and unpretentious. Plenty of tourists come here for the "authentic" Norwegian home cookin all the guide books rave about. Food was surprisingly expensive for such a casual place. Busy but not packed on a Friday night, does not take reservations so come early and have a beer while you wait for a table. Good variety on tap, mostly lighter styles that go well with food. Not a place to come to for the beer alone, but a great place for dinner accompanied by nice beer. Our waiter/bartender was very helpful and service-minded.

Not a favorite place of mine for ambience, but the beer selection is quite nice, the waitors friendly and quick, and it’s a nice place to stop by for a dinner. I can especially recommend the whale steak, which I know might offend some people, but it’s delicious and then some. The beer selection is a blend of Norwegian micro and both standard and some special imports. Guess the foreign visitor will find more new ratings here than the Norwegian rater.

I would not call this a beer place really. They have some drafts they change from time to time but nothing very special. Bottle selection is not very interesting. The food and the ambience is what makes this a place to go to. Perfect for a dinner and two beers.

Quite a busy small place, mostly youngsters although my age is represented as well. Friendly service and knowledge too. Had some nice beers and a local Norwegian dish. Bit noisy for conversation, but it is OK.

A very cozy place with an OK selection of both Norwegian and foreign craft beer. Prices are reasonable. Traditional Norwegian dishes served, also at good prices. Absolutely a place worth a visit when in Bergen.

Nice mixture of armchairs, and booth tables. The food was awesome and the beer although not extensive was good and well priced for Norway. The service was quite good and I had a good night overall

Ahh! I sank into an old fashioned, comfy armchair with a craft beer in my hand. Life wasn’t bad at all in spite of the heavy rain outside. Great food and great beer. Knowledgeable staff and a pleasant mix of locals, students and tourists. Family friendly at daytime. (Visited September 14th 2013)

Nice cafe, friendly atmosphere, friendly staff, rather simply, but invitingly furnished. OK selection of beers including Norwegian Balder and Nøgne Ø, as well as local Waldemar on tap. And mark: Serves traditional Norwegian food!

This one has at least got two great advantages; they open earlier than other centrally located places (at 13.00) in Bergen, and serves beers from the Balder microbrewery. In addition there are beers on tap from Nøgne Ø and Waldemar supported by an interesting range of international bottled beers. Retro-trendy bar and restaurant with a cozy atmosphere. Polite service. Strange kind of avantgarde music, however not that disturbing Very short way to other beer related places in Bergen. Likable place (visited 17.09.2012).
