You have to give this fish restaurant 5 star for the quality of its food. The service is a bit iffy but we found Norway generally is poor for customer service and of course, is anywhere not expensive in Norway? This is the second time we have been brought here by our Norwegian friends as it has a high reputation... More

After the show upstairs, our friends from Oslo had ordered a table in the restaurant for a meal.Many tables where free,some not cleaned,but we asked if we could sit down until a waiter had removed glasses and plates from the previous guests.But no,go outside and wait until we are ready,was the message we got from a waiter.In stead of cleaning...

Wanted hamburgers to go but they are only available to eat in restaurant! So went for the shellfish and mushroom pasta, got some shellfish and two wafer thin mushroom slices (one each - lucky us). The sauce was OK, the pasta was the same dried pasta available from the supermarket. Served in a plastic bucket from the microwave, hot on... More

We have eaten here twice and they were busy both times. We were not quite sure what to do, so we stood and waited in the entry way. Waitresses swished by quickly, but no one greeted us or told us to wait or find a seat for ourselves. Eventually my husband approached a waiter cleaning a table and asked if... More

If you want try really good seafood in Østfold I recommend this restaurant. Absolutely fantastic fiskesuppe, every time I eat there soup is excellent. Also blåskjell are worth attention, don't forget order garlic bread, taste delicious with both - suppe and blåskjell 😊. Restaurant is very popular within locals and most of the time fully booked so make reservation, especially... More

We've been coming here for years and the food is consistently good. If weather and queues allow its great to sit outside. It can be tricky to get a place if you get in on a weekend in July but it's worth the wait.

This is said to be one of the best restaurant of the region when it comes to fish. If so it would be better to by fresh fish and make your soup or fried fish yourself according to our experience this evening. If you aspire to be a reasonably 'good' restaurant nowadays you need to offer something better. Starter with... More

This restaurant is famous for its fish soup called 'Brødrene Skogen' (The forest brothers) fish soup. Personally, I never like it when they have to call it 'famous' in the menu. This makes it less unique in my eyes. However, I tried it and it was indeed creamy with a lot of marine ingredients; fish, scallops, shrimps etc. And lots... More

I reserved the table a day before which is smart, since the place were crowded after 17.00. We ordered two starters and two main courses (the famous fish soup). The starters came within 20 min and the taste was nice and refreshing. After we were done with those we waited for 25 min for the soup, and I had to... More

I have been to this restaurant multiple times, as a visit or two here is a summer tradition. The location is beautiful and Engelsviken is a very, very idyllic place. They are famous for the fish soup. I think they should add a few more options to their menu though, as it has been more or less the same for... More

Engelsviken Brygge Fiskerestaurant (Fish restaurant) opened its door for the first time in May of 1995, and our speciality has always been fish. Popular with the locals, the restaurant has become popular for tourists from areas such as Oslo, Son and Indre ostfold (Inner ostfold). The restaurant has a pub on the first floor, where several concerts are held yearly. Why not come here to kick back your feet after work and enjoy everything the pub and restaurant have to offer.
