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 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.

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!

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.

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.
