There is a new chef that brings the quality of the food to a higher. We had three different meals, all truly delicious and beautifully presented. The service is still lacking due to young and inexperienced staff, although they seem eager to improve.

have visited this restaurant several times in summer, and also had fish soup takeaway. The soup is famous, with reason. Nice seating outside with the harbour.

You have to give this fish restaurant 5 star for the quality of its food. The service is a bit iffy but we found Norway generally is poor for customer service and of course, is anywhere not expensive in Norway? This is the second time...More

We've been coming here for years and the food is consistently good. If weather and queues allow its great to sit outside. It can be tricky to get a place if you get in on a weekend in July but it's worth the wait.

This is said to be one of the best restaurant of the region when it comes to fish. If so it would be better to by fresh fish and make your soup or fried fish yourself according to our experience this evening. If you aspire...More

This restaurant is famous for its fish soup called 'Brødrene Skogen' (The forest brothers) fish soup. Personally, I never like it when they have to call it 'famous' in the menu. This makes it less unique in my eyes. However, I tried it and it...More

Jeg kan tenke meg å ta med en venn for å spise blant annet denne berømte fiskesuppen en gang på forsommeren. Jeg har lest en del kommentarer når det gjelder kvaliteten på mat og service. Jeg ble litt skeptisk etter å ha lest noen av disse komentarene. Hvilke dager er det best å komme, med tanke på ikke for mye kø,når på dagen er best. Jeg synes det ville være så synd å måtte oppleve å bli så skuffet som noen tydeligvis har blitt, fordi det er viktig at det skal kunne bli en virkelig positiv opplevelse for min venn når vi kommer. mvh Øyvind G

Engelsviken Brygge Fiskerestaurant (Fish restaurant) opened its door for the first time in May of 1995, and our speciality has always been fish. Popular with the locals, the restaurant has become popular for tourists from areas such as Oslo, Son and Indre ostfold (Inner ostfold). The restaurant has a pub on the first floor, where several concerts are held yearly. Why not come here to kick back your feet after work and enjoy everything the pub and restaurant have to offer.
