I don't remember the name of it, but I had a chicken dish in a spicy sauce with rice. It was INCREDIBLE! I made everyone try it. I got full before I finished it all. I didn't want to leave it because it was so delicious!

Visited here at a somewhat delayed Valentine. We ordered the long fried pork neck. I must say this is probably one of the best meals I have ever eaten in Haugesund. The meat was really tender and juicy. The garnish was composed of potato puree and tasty vegetables. The dish was topped with a delightful peppersauce. Both of us were... More

Very tasty food that was well served - all in nice ambience of maritime related decor. It is one of the restaurants at Haugesund's quay - main informal/fine dining area.

A nice place for friends and groups to meet over a nice dinner and a few drinks. Decent a la carte menu, a good selection of beers and very polite and serviceminded staff! The food could perhaps be presented a bit more delicately, not just a bunch of fried chips covering 3/4 of the plate (!), but it has nice... More

I visited this place for relaxing with a couple of beers. I appears to be nice place. They also serve food which I did not have so I have no comment on the food.
