Good beer choice Ina cozy basement bar that is welcoming and warm. Food is excellent value for money. Fresh tasting and decent portions. Great place to hit. Ignore reviews about poor atmosphere...make it your own and enjoy.

Hidden in the basement of an unassuming restaurant, this bar is just okay.  Not as lively as the Penguin, and not as good of a selection.  Grab a small table for a quiet drink.  The bartender was inexperienced in drawing a draft beer.  I had to ask her to top up my glass, which was 12% foam.  Try one of...

Great little restaurant. Service was good and effective. The food was superb, especially the Naboen smoked salmon. I also loved the steak, which was cooked to perfection

Despite trying very hard to snag a table downstairs on a Friday night, we were unsuccessful, so opted for a table in the upstairs dining room, where they held our reservation. They have an extensive wine list, and the hostess helped us select a great choice to accompany my husband's boulebaisse and my steak with potatoes gratin. (Fortunately they were... More

We are a couple with a 7 year old. We were famished when at 9 o'clock we came back from a cruise of the fyiords. It was late and we decided on Naboen's pub in the basement (they have a restaurant upstairs). The bartender/waiter was nice and kind, and we had our food quickly. The food was excellent and abundant.... More

I went downstairs to the pub and ordered the plank steak. It was a good-sized portion and was tender and delicious. It came with bearnaise sauce that was marvelous, and was served with mashed potatoes and five small green beans wrapped in bacon. One of the high quality cheap eats of Bergen, as long as you go downstairs to the... More

They make very good food at a very good price in their basement. I usually go there every now and then. It's been a long time since I ate upstairs. Their burger is good and I really enjoy their Biff Lindstrøm - a real treat for a hungry man.

Usually when on holidays I never go back to a place, mainly because I want to try more - made and exception for this! Had the fish and chips first time - very fine batter and a good chunky cod fillet with a refreshing tartar sauce. Nicked some of my sister's dill potatoes and struck by lightening! Rushed back the...

We came around 8 pm and it was busy. It was 8 of us. All of my friend ordered beers and start talking. I was so hungry and ordered beer and a beef dish. I've got my beer and start waiting for the food. Not long from that rest of my friends ordered food also. By the 8.30 most of... More

Description
The name "Naboen" means neighbor, and this is just what the Naboen Pub & Restaurant is, a friendly and inviting place to eat and drink. Hospitality is job one here, and the Scandinavian kitchen, staff and culinary tradition are representative of Norway.

The food is all made from scratch, as it would have been two hundred years ago - no processed ingredients allowed. Naboens' menu is a culinary delight, one heaped in Nordic tradition, and best of all moderately priced. Guests here partake of Norwegian food and spirits as they should be enjoyed, Bergen style.
