I love getting crab or king crab (or as they really are; Kamchatka crab) from Roar. He is a great character and genuine friendly guy that sells great sea food. If you are hungry and don't want to bring it home to look prep it, just order a sandwich with king prawns and your good

Good salmon sandwiches for a good price and in a good location. Perfect for a summer afternoon to eat and walk around the Brygga.

I have been here a few times, mostly for ice cream (soft serve and scoop), but also for seafood. This is a kiosk-type establishment that serves a large variety of seafood including sushi. Their fish and chips are pretty good. The location on the boardwalk can't be beat. They set up many picnic tables in the summer, which was inviting.... More

For me and my small family, Roar i Bua has always been a destination every summer. When it gets hotter in the Spring, my son always asks if we could drop by Roar's for ice cream. It's hard to resist him because Roar i Bua is not just ice cream but also a fish shop where one can buy fish... More

Now he is rooted, and has for some reason been allowed by the municipality to set up his own kiosk in the heart of this little pretty town. In Summer you can... More

We were traveling from Oslo to Kristiansand with 3 kids and we wanted to find someplace with good, quick food and saw this one on TripAdvisor so we took the exit. At first we thought it was not going to be great; lots of traffic, parking lot was full and just seemed very touristy in this area. But a parking... More
