Lava Oslo with the local star chefs Tom Victor Gausdal & Stian Floer in the lead takes over the old TÃ¸nsberg Town Hall to create Vestfold's new meeting place Stasjonen. We have completely renovated the entire first floor and build a brand new restaurant,
My date and I had high expectations, alas, we left rather less enthusiastic than we arrived. As the main courses did not entice us we decided to order snacks and entrees family style. They waiter looked rather confused about family style, but the chef, apparently, understood.The wine list offered us nothing we recognised so we asked our friendly waiter, who recommended their house wine. The house wine was a disgusting, characterless bio-dynamic concoction. An unmitigated disaster. When the time came to order a new bottle I used Vivinoâs wine list scanning function. The result was as depressing as their house wine. A wine list based on a belief in magic and ideology is not a good starting point. I suggest you restock your wine list to match your website assertions that taste comes first.We ordered and received, soggy with flavourless oil, oversized and unseasoned Chicharrones.Polenta, again with a layer of oil, probably cooked on too low heat, accompanied with a flavourless rosemary and parmigiano aioli.Excellent sourdough bread with flavourless butter.Gnocchi - which they helpfully named potato gnocchi (are there any other kind...) - fried, again in a flavourless oil, and I assume grana padano rather than parmigiano reggiano. uneventful.Finally steambuns, with pork ribs and kimchi. The buns and the pork ribs were good, although more pork rib filling would be nice. The kimchi was an insult to kimchi. When I commented on the fact that the kimchi tasted more like coleslaw with shrimp paste than proper fermented kimchi, she explained that they had toned it down since this was a provincial town outside Oslo. This was not toned down kimchi, but rather made by a clueless and incompetent chef. And, yeah, we had a drink before dinner in the bar. It felt like I was back in my university dorm common room, so I dug it! My date was not so amused.Such a shame, what a missed opportunity!

We were scheduled to attend a concert at the Foynhagen, which is on the harborfront of old TÃ¸nsberg, the oldest city in Norway, and the strip is chockablock with nice eateries, of which I have tried a few.Tempted by the location very close to the concert venue, as well as raking up some hotel loyalty points by eating there, we opted for Brasserie X.Should have known better, I must admit.We had a pretty mediocre meal, steak, fish and Caesar salad, none of which was very memorable, and with a service that was friendly but a bit haphazard.It's a nice hotel with fine rooms overlooking a canal and the breakfast is great.Sad to say, I advise visitors to take other meals at nearby restaurants on the canal strip.All the same (steep) price, more or less, but better than the X.The location is very nice, with the evening sun till it sets (in July, about 11 pm.) and compensates for the not memorable meal.Dear Lars B.H.,Thank you for your comment on TripAdvisor. This help us improve our services to the guests. We are sorry for not delivering a product like you expected. Your feedback is taken with our chef so we can improve our food in the future.Hope too see you again, so we can prove we can better! :-)

Coffeeshop and lunch place with tasty food and fresh coffee. They also have a large selection of cakes. Unpretentious place with a cozy and warm atmosphere.
This cafe is a lively place on Saturdays, packed with people. Despite that, the place has a relaxed ambience. The food is good for norwegian cafe-standards, and the prices are average. But they need "the little extra" to lift them from an average-rating. Their pre-fabricated pizza-buns is one example. Every place serving pizza should make it from scratch. The so-called famous chili-burger is also OK, but not more (and where is the chili?), and for some reason they serve it in a grand, deep pasta-plate, which makes it impossible to eat with knife and fork. From before, the burger is uneatable with hands. When we are with friends or family visiting a cafe, we want delicate food that is easy to eat without looking rediculous. You have to pick up your drinks yourself at the desk (why?), and the food is served at the table. But the ones who serve do not always know who shall have the food, so they walk around the restaurant saying loudly "who shall have this pizza? And this Chicken-salad?". A little disturbing and definitely unnecessary. The location is close to perfect, and it could have been even better, if the crossroad outside the large windows were turned into a little pedestrians plaza. In this Summer-city, this plaza could have been giving this corner of the town status as "little Italy". Just remove the cars, put up a fountain and a statue of someone important, and then lay down some cobblestones and you're there. I hereby urge the cafes and restaurants in the block to convince the politicians in the town. If Babels Cafe move out in the street in the little plaza during Summer, almost no-one can beat them. Especially if they sharpen their menu, and get some specialities they can be really proud of.

Nice pizza restaurant in Sjobod Quarter of Tonsberg Brygge. Large beer garden and full bar. The restaurant is housed in the restored Hotel Britannia farm. Pizza Restaurant 250 seats. Outside dining area seats 150. Peppes Bar and Night Cafe in the 2 floor
My favourite place to visit in TÃ¸nsberg. Such a friendly staff, and without doubt Peppes got the very best pizzas! Check out Heavy Heaven and Beef & Bernaise. They have a great outdoor area, which is a must visit on sunny days.

Restaurant, a la carte, Woodfired brickowen Pizzeria, Bar. Night club. Dockside terrace. Seat 250 innside and 100 terrace. Tonsbergs Venue!
My husband and I enjoyed a good fishmeal this evening at Esmeraldas. From the winelist it looked like the price of a glass of whitewine was about NOK 100. I just asked for a glass and they served me half a glass of chablis, no one mentioned the price: NOK 139,- or 16 US$... The food was tasty there, but the owner is much too greedy.Hi Kristin,Iâm glad to hear about your nice meal, but not so about your experience with the wine. Our waiters are not to serve a more expencive wine than our house wine if just asked for a glas of wine. Iâll make shure they get the message again.

Restaurant Paparazzi for food and wine lovers
This restaurant have excellent food. It is right on the docks and a great place to relax. On this visit i ordered a burger, it was great. I added fries to my order the next time the waitress passed our table, but I never got them. That is not good enough, I expected the fries to arrive after the burger, but never saw them. Hard to get the waitress attention so I just gave up.

At La Pergola we will serve you tasty dishes in different varieties like Italian pizzas, salads, pasta, fish, specialty grilled meat dishes and desserts
Its a good eating joint, but expensive. I had the mozzarella with cherry tomatoes starter, and the cheek of pork as main course. The meat was very tender. The wine selection was ok.

The food was ok although a limited menu. The place is rather loud but still we were refused to buy more drinks even though we only had a couple of beers. Quite unprofessional and rude service.

We went for lunch in a beautiful sunny day with the temperature-6.The interior is typical of the norwegian tradition. Wood skillfully worked.We took a fish soup, mussels and a peculiar sandwich with meat and vegetables inside.Nothing really special but good enough to have the pleasure of eating it. One beer one mineral water total: 613 krowns.Service in the normal average.Could go back.
