WOW! What an incredible find! Their shrimp salad with cucumber and fresh fruit is amazing!! Great decor inside-open beams and concrete floors with a stunning waterside open patio! Spectacular views and food! Top find! Extra bonus - cool tunes and water pitcher with fruit and vegetable infusions!

Everything was going more than swimmingly. A delicious bruschetta with mozzarella covered with all sorts of delicate shoots and leaves. Fish soup creamy and delicious with generous portions of fish and mussels; fresh pea pods and parsley. We had a feeling of contentment so, despite Norwegian prices, ordered a pudding - prune and coconut but mostly prune. It was not... More

Very nice place with very good raspberry chocolate cake and a cappuccino made by a true barista who happens to be the chef too. Nice place to sit in the basement and it is a interior decoration store too (other entrance)

This place was next to our hotel, and for two days we kept trying to get an espresso there - it looked beautiful and inviting. But oddly, it seemed to be always closed, despite being peak tourist season. It also had no schedule listed on the door or on their web site. Second day around I finally saw it open,... More

Very good coffee and snacks here at Invit Espresso Bar, but I found the little cakes I had expensive though very good. I think I'm just pricing things in Norway as expensive compared to a similar option and home and finding a lot of stuff is not cheap, but the quality is high, so I guess it's good value. I... More

The place is beautiful - tastefully decorated, good views if you get a window. But some of the staff are and rude, and not worth putting up with.

After living in Norway for several years now, we've gotten use to most meals out being meh - and no where near worth the price. This was a rare exception - it was wonderful. We had soup, pasta salad and some chocolate / caramel dessert that was worth every calorie. I typically do not go for this cafe style service,... More
