There is such an array of wonderful baked treats at the Cafe Floyfisken,we had a difficult time choosing one, so we visited again the next day. Everything we sampled was delightful. My spouse had a coffee, I had a beer, our two kids had juice,and everybody had delicious dessert. Take your food outside where there is plenty of seating and... More

They have a fantastic variety of baked goods and excellent coffee. The aquarium itself is pretty small.

Wide selection of pastries and desserts. It was difficult to make a choice. We had a delicious berry pastry with soft ice cream on the side. Nice setting of seats outside by the harbour.

You may think b/c this café is in an aquarium that it would not be good, but you would be wrong. I wish we had been able to eat here a few more times. There lunch menu looked really good.

My husband and I stayed in Balestrand for three days and ate lunch here each day. Everything we had was very good and reasonably priced. We enjoyed their soups, pizzas, sandwiches, breads and pastries. There are dining tables inside, covered tables on the aquarium pier or umbrella tables by the entrance, all with outstanding fjord and harbor views.

This bakery is inside the Aquarium...I know its off season, but everything was run by a one person...one nice lady whom is baking the goods, serving the goods, cashiering the goods, cleaning the tables, selling tickets to the aquarium, feeding the fish, and god only knows what else!

We had a good desert from Mu's Bakery next to the Balestrand Aquarium. Service was good. The desert was not astounding, but hearty and enjoyable. There are not that many choices for desert in this small fjord town, so we were happy. Also, they do have outside tables with a fjord view, which was great.
