    Norwegians have their own meatballs and here they made it so good! Served with mushy peas and lingonberries, exquisite! The fish macaroni pie is also recommended. Place gets packed in the evening.

    Hearty food, friendly service. Note that the fish stew isn't soup - it's boiled cod, shredded and mixed with mashed potatoes! Delicious nonetheless though
