The location is great, jus next door to the sea. Unfortunately the food is below average. I have never understood that the Tyholmen hotel does not make a priority of serving high quality meals. We were so disappointed!

Strange. The cod is bland, one note, under seasoned. Soup was good fresh. Service is amateur. Shame.

This restaurant inside the Tyholmen hotel has the best lunch in town - by far. Also the view of the harbor is great. The fish soup is expensive, but very good. And the shrimp sandwich, mussels and salads are also good quality. Add to that good service and a nice atmosphere with the small city ferries passing outside the window.

lousy food and worse service. Given the place a few chances but equally disappointed each time. They do however have one of the best beer menus I've seen and can recommend sitting in the lounge bar and enjoy the sea view
