Dinner yesterday with my grandchildren and grandparents. Poor service Very small portions on our dinner plate. The beef was tasty. No vegetables. Tasteless. They had salad, to go with the dinner, but not warm vegetables. Did not enjoy.

Going out for lunch or dinner in Kristiansand? I recommend the restaurant "Smak av Norge" (Taste of Norway) Fantastic food and lovely service. This is one of my favorite places to go eating in this city. Newly remodeled. Fantastic atmosphere.
