We tried more places, but Kroa was very good value for money. Very tasty food, polite waiters and quick serving. Atmosphere is local and international at the same time. Students from the university mixed with American tourists. Lovely blend. Often crowded at dinner time, so...More

A characteristic, local style venue, serving burgers, pizzas and some a la carte choices, all very tasty! Great choice of beers, with my favourite choice being a locally brewed blonde @ NOK 91/pint.

We ate here as a large group and I arrived very late. They accommodated me well, even getting me a vegetarian meal off the menu that was quite good.

We were in town and came upon Kroa. Wait staff very friendly and quick service despite a full house. Good selection of local beers and the duck sandwich was delicious. Worth the stop if you are in town

What an amazing layout and decor at this restaurant and bar. THey serve food late, and while the food they have is good, it is mostly casual dining with a limited menu particularly for lunch. Very good drinks and staff.
