Having read previous advice , we studied the menu options between the basement bar and the first floor restaurant. The burgers that were coming out downstairs looked great and seemed good value but we wanted something more substantial so opted for the restaurant menu upstairs. The atmosphere is a little flat and this is mostly generated by the plain white... More

As most everyone says, go to the pub downstairs. I had some great beer here and the people in the bar were very friendly. Good pub food too. It was quite a comfortable spot and if i had been in Bergen more than one night i would have definitely come back.

We got dinner there, all of us got burger and it was very good. Good size and tasteful, also the pommes frites were ok. And you get a good value for what you paid. The place, in the first floor looks more "expensive", but the basement is cozy and comfy. One of the good ones in Bergen !! We will... More

Hidden in the basement of an unassuming restaurant, this bar is just okay.  Not as lively as the Penguin, and not as good of a selection.  Grab a small table for a quiet drink.  The bartender was inexperienced in drawing a draft beer.  I had to ask her to top up my glass, which was 12% foam.  Try one of...

Great little restaurant. Service was good and effective. The food was superb, especially the Naboen smoked salmon. I also loved the steak, which was cooked to perfection

Despite trying very hard to snag a table downstairs on a Friday night, we were unsuccessful, so opted for a table in the upstairs dining room, where they held our reservation. They have an extensive wine list, and the hostess helped us select a great choice to accompany my husband's boulebaisse and my steak with potatoes gratin. (Fortunately they were... More

We are a couple with a 7 year old. We were famished when at 9 o'clock we came back from a cruise of the fyiords. It was late and we decided on Naboen's pub in the basement (they have a restaurant upstairs). The bartender/waiter was nice and kind, and we had our food quickly. The food was excellent and abundant.... More

The name "Naboen" means neighbor, and this is just what the Naboen Pub & Restaurant is, a friendly and inviting place to eat and drink. Hospitality is job one here, and the Scandinavian kitchen, staff and culinary tradition are representative of Norway.

The food is all made from scratch, as it would have been two hundred years ago - no processed ingredients allowed. Naboens' menu is a culinary delight, one heaped in Nordic tradition, and best of all moderately priced. Guests here partake of Norwegian food and spirits as they should be enjoyed, Bergen style.
