Was there for a offer where you got 2 tapas-dishes for 100 kroner. (Which is nice). The food was very good, but the value with normal prices is not very good. The scampi-plate had 5 scampi on it, and if i'm not mistaken the normal price for this one is about 70-90 kroner. We also had a reindeer roastbeef-plate which... More

Tasty and nice prepared tapas. We ordered 7 dishes and that was more than enough for 2 persons. Nice location by the harbour in Arendal as well. Pricing was ok.

Solsiden deliver very good tapas, better then most of the tapas I have eaten in Spain. And I have a house in Spain so I have eaten a lot. But of course it is Norwegian prices. The location is perfect in Pollen with sun most of the day and evening. The service was excellent.

A good place for tapas, both as a snack or for a full dinner. Good selection of both food and wine, but I'm missing a better beer selection (IPA etc). Nice location and friendly service.

This place has been recycled so many times that it has become ridiculous. The food is very much over-priced, and the poor craftsmanship and gastronomical knowledge is appalling.
