Jan Magne Fosse told us to try this place as it was one of the oldest restaurants in Bergen. We were a little worried when we entered as it was relatively quiet, but when we sat down at our perfectly dressed table and realized how pleasantly warm the dining room was our fears were dispelled. The restaurant offers a tapas formula, which we misunderstood as meaning a first course and second course. We ordered three tapas. We both tried the three types of herrings, and the smoked herring, but my partner opted for the smoked trout, while I had a tin of King Oscar's sardines.
What can I say; the herring was absolutely delicious, firm pieces in dill oil, tomato sauce and in pickled onions, each type pleased. The smoked herring too was lovely. The sardines are apparently a Norwegian speciality and the secret is that they are not sardines at all but young herring! All with a glass of delicious aquavit.
For mains I tried the Prince's cod, which turned out to be a portion of very fresh cod served with a piece of lobster, in a fine white sauce. Very nice indeed.
We shared a dessert, as we'd had enough to eat, but here too the berries marinated in aquavit proved to be a fitting end to a memorable and reasonably priced meal. Thank you very much!
