Catering & Consulting: Great value food
May not be as famous as sjoebua or some others in the centre of town, and the name's bit strange. But this is a little gem hidden away in kirkegata. Atmosphere is relaxed (only one waitress), and the food is well-executed. Only Kr255 for three course meal, this place can't be beaten for value!
Favorite Dish: Locally sourced fish -very good indeed.

Sjøbua Fiskerestaurant: fish and shellfish
Sjøbua Fiskerestaurant is first of all scenic... with a view on the Brosundet canal. it's architecturally interesting, too - being located in a renovated warehouse used for fish processing - complete with tools from the past on display... and lastly... delicious.
Favorite Dish: The freshest fish you can think of... so fresh that at times you may choose it from the restaurant tanks. it is the crab that I remember as particularly amazing.
Gagata Restaurant: The best bacalao of the town!!
Gagata Restaurant is located on the main road of Alesund, in a nice Art Nouveau bilding. In the restaurant you can feel an infomal and friendly atmosphere. Here you can try very good dishes. I can suggest the fantastic Bacalao with tomatos and white and red fishes!!! Very good :)

Many restaurants: Fishfishfishfishfishfishfishfishfishfishfish
Ålesund has some of the best and freshest sea food served in Norway. I will try to list the restaurants here as I go: ....
Favorite Dish: I would generally recommend the following fish for visitors:
Wolf fish, any style.
Halibut, poached, then lightly panfried.
Coalfish steak with onions.
Mølje of cod fish - includes liver, roe, flat bread, broth.
Skrei, the late winter issue of big cod, poached and served with red wine, yes, red!
Piggvar, a type of big flounder that tastes extremely good.
Håbrann, a shark similar to the mako, that tastes very good when prepared right.
All of this fish is locally available.

Fjellstua: A restaurant with a view
On top of the ridge Aksla just above the city.
Come here for the view and the exercise, not necessarily for the food.
Favorite Dish: Some Norwegian coastal main fares that you could try here and tick off your list of "seen it, done it".
Pinnekjøtt (smoked, salted, dried, steamed ribs of lamb).
Rømmegrøt (sour cream porrdige).
Some game dishes.
Various fish dishes.
Some more fast-food type schnitzels etc. were also on the menu.

Chinese restaurant: Fed up with bland Norwegian fare?
This restaurant is rated among the best Chinese restaurants nation-wide. The owner has deliberately hired Filippino, Vietnamese and Chinese staff to ensure authenticity for their wide range South East Asian menu.
Very good food, nice and friendly staff.
Favorite Dish: Sechuan scampi

Orient Bar: Orient Bar
I eat here primary for its excellent food, but also because of its nice staff and great atmosphere.
Favorite Dish: Orient Special ...
Deep-fried prawn, grilled beef tenderloin w/ pepper sauce, Szechuan seafood, satay lamb, deep-fried 'bacalhau' balls & salad.
Served with steamed rice. You may also choose fried rice, fried rice w/ garlic or fried rice w/ curry sauce
Hummer Kanari: Hummer Kanari
In Ålesund there are a lot of good restaurants which are very expensive and others which are cheap and a bit offputting. This one has an expensive restaurant menu but it also has a bistro meny (sic)which is far more moderately priced - excellent atmosphere with prototypes of every sexual orientation and families. Very good find.
Favorite Dish: Penne with fish sauce.
Not exactly a restaurant, but...
Not exactly a restaurant, but more of a tent next to the street selling stir-fried minsk whale.
Aren't you paying attention, I said they sell whale!!!
Favorite Dish: Er, they only have whale at this tent. If you want smoked salmon, you'll need to look for another tent.
Brosundet Caf?: A good cafe in the heart of the town
The Brosundet Cafe' is situated inside First Hotel Atlantica. Here you can relax and study the lovely view of the Brosundet sound while enjoying tasty lunches, dinners and delicious cakes.
