I took a hike to the top of the hill for magnificent views, which made me worn out! I was not convinced of food served at such a touristy cafe restaurant, but gave it a try anyway. It was a nice surprise, the "best fish soup" was really the best. I really enjoyed the quick meal overlooking the beautiful lights... More

Visiting Älesund without passing Fjellstua is going to Paris without seeing the Eifeltour. Of course here it is more about the stunning views then about the building. But there is a lot of history on this famous viewpoints restaurant and the city. Since they have renovated they are back in business. Updated interior was so necessary. From the beginning I... More

The view is stunning no question about it. The restaurant is good but a bit pricey. Service was very good. No menu for the kids unfortunately but staff managed to make them happy nevertheless.

This restaurant is located right at the top of the fjellstuta viewpoint. It is divided into 2 parts. The formal restaurant is located just below the main viewpoint. In fact it's roof acts as the viewpoint. Also on the upper deck/roof/ viewpoint they have a small coffee shop for snacks and cakes and pastries. They have an amazing chocolate cake... More

We went here a nice afternoon. Ordered burger and club sandwich plus local beer. Food was ok (not super, not bad) but the whole place was overtaken / dominated by tourists. Not against tourist, but too much. Sorry.

This is something we could understand if there was a logistic challenge. How ever it is accessible by car, all the way to the door. So shape up your business model, and maybe the... More
