A nice place with good coffee. Relatively basic but ok menu. More of a Cafe than restaurant, with quiet and relaxing atmosphere. Friendly staff.

I wasn't able to get there until after 8:30, and closing time is 10:00 on Tuesdays. But staff were very accommodating and served me promptly. The filet of cod was served in a very tasty recipe, and I enjoyed a nice almond cake for dessert. Nice place for anyone, but especially for health conscious, right in downtown.

Best place for having food in Ålesund. I have been there many times as quality is very good and prices are reasonable. It is a nice, cozy place in the city center. The staff are amazing, friendly and very quick. (Thank you for the service Mario, Anna, Peter and -I'm sorry- the rest who I don't know by your name).... More

The food is tasty. The room could definitely been bigger, a bit claustrophobic here when all tables are in use.

This restaurant is very busy, and only on the second day did we have dinner there. But it's worth insisting, because the food is very tasty, the menu is varied, and the service is very good. The desserts are also spectacular. The restaurant is in the central part of the city, and has tables inside and also on the sidewalk.

We visited Lyst for an early dinner and experienced a pleasant dinner with quality steaks at reasonable prices. The service was a bit busy but friendly. The restaurant has a small wine and beer list, but suitable for the food. It's a good restaurant for an uncomplicated dinner.
