We ate downstairs as checked reviews on Tripadvisor and saw was cheaper to eat in the bar. We were not disappointed the meatballs were lovely as was the fish. Also we had a home brewed beer which was recommended it was delicious smelt and tasted if bananas.

We arrived here tired and hungry on our first night in Bergen after being turned away at several other popular spots. Craving comfort, we opted for the main dining room instead of the pub downstairs. From the get-go, things started going wrong. They didn't have the halibut I wanted to order, or the sancerre my husband chose. They couldn't their... More

Dear Gelatifan First of all let me say I am glad to hear that your husband enjoyed the trout. That, however, does not explain what happened to your pollock. We have a policy of trying to change/fix problems with any orders, and sadly that does not seem to have happened in your case, and I apologize for that. Naturally I... More

We popped in for a bite to eat on a Sunday evening. Not wanting a full dinner we went down to the basement. There were few people downstairs. The waitress was super friendly, although she didn't know much about wine (and was honest about the fact). My husband had beer from the tap (which was an area she knew lots... More

We walked down here in the rain and it appeared empty, but the real action is in the basement pub. We ate a quiet, delicious dinner upstairs. The menu is somewhat limited but high quality with broad choices (veal, beef, duck, fish). The server was very attentive and agreed to some change requests.

GeirSteinar, Manager at Naboen, responded to this review

The manager at the Bed and Breakfast we stayed at recommended this place for us. Very Hip. But all ages of people go. Locals and visitors. Always have a couple special local beers on tap that they brew on the premises. Very Special place near the Theater district in Bergen

My wife and I were looking for some place where we could have nice food in a relaxed scene amd this did the trick. It was suggested by a waiter from another restaurant as a place que he as a local likes to go. We shared the burger and the salmon and both were very good.

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.
