Went tried Smia for good fish and service. This place is busy but well worth the wait which isn't very long. The service is great and for someone who can't read Norwegian waiter is glad to explain in English. Started off with a Oakes Whale (Rott Vanelval) which is very good also home made bread butter and crackers with brown... More

Nice and really old building, actually a blacksmith`s workshop, makes an exceptional backdrop for local food served in authentic surroundings. A little expensive though, but might be the best restaurant in town. Enthusiastic and welcoming staff.

Nice location, a bit open space but still cosy atmosphere. Food was ok, solid portions but nothing special really. Personally I prefer the Brasserie or Thone Hotel when in town.

The restaurant is in an old building close to the central station not far from the harbour. Food is good but expensive. Service is good but unpersonal.

We were convinced to try kilppfish but as we both were more tempted with the salmon , we decided to order one of each and share. We were not disappointed. We ordered a bottle of wine however as it eas not already chilled we were offered another more expensive bottle at the same price. The service was commendable. We thoroughly... More

After being highly recommended this fish restaurant in Kristiansund, I reserved a table for me and my wife. The restaurant is located in a nice building with a history. It has a nice atmosphere. The service was ok - one of the waitresses spend a lot of time with a certain couple - ignoring the other guests. We chose klippfisk... More

This place used to be a great place to get Your chow in a cosy enviroment. Their prices could be justified by a great meny and well prepared local food. Now, new owners and a different concept makes this place a one time visit restaurant. Everything is way overpriced. The portions are supersmall. We had the Klippfisk wich was good,... More

Visited a quiet Tuesday evening. Only two table occupied when I arrived. A helpful waiter met me at the door and got seated very fast. Back in a few seconds and took the order for food and drink. Ordered a bacalao and "klippfisk øl". The portion was large and the bacalao was just as spicy as it should be. A... More
