Bjartmars Favorittkro: for a great Bacalao
Eating the local fish-speciality "Bacalao" in this great restaurant in quite some distance in the north-east of Molde, was included in the price of the Hurtigruten-daytour from Kristiansund to Molde. There was free icewater on the table, white bread and complimentary tea or coffee served after the maincourse. Beer and wine and softdrinks were extra, a glass of beer was 12 euros when I remember that correctely (a usual price for beer in Norways restaurants).
Favorite Dish: Bacalao is a traditional fish-dish, a stew made of klippfish, potatoes, bell-peppers, olives and some spices. Klippfish is a codfish that was salted and dried in the open air, beeing placed directely on the stones of the cliffs.

Dolly Dimple's: Is this thing supposed to be a pizza?
I still remember the good old days, before Dolly Dimple's turned into a nationwide chain...when there was only one restaurant, in Sandnes, back in 1987...that's when they still made great pizza.
Favorite Dish: I had the "Italian" style, thin crust pizza. 120 kroner for a thin loaf with a sticky topping. Sorry, guys, this is not my cup of tea.
My friend tried the economy meal, a kid's menu with a free soft drink, a mini-pizza and an all-you-can eat ice cream buffet, except they didn't tell us that adult's can only get the mini-pizza...they only told us AFTER they brought the pizza and we asked why we were not given the soft drink. By that time we were almost set to leave, but we stayed. We will not be back.
China House: Chinese?
Chinese restaurants are all over the world. Most of them don't serve Chinese food, but something that vaguely looks like and tastes like Chinese. Very few restaurants serve authentic Chinese meals. This restaurant is no exception. One good thing is the harbour view though.
Mestergrill: Great kebabs!
With high meat prices in Norway I usually avoid fast food kebabs, because you'll usually be served some sort of processed meat, meat loaf or, if you're lucky, minced meat. Here, too, but nonetheless, the kebabs here are excellently made. BTW, this outlet is owned by the same guy who owns the fast food and pizza restaurant at the town square.
Egon: Finally some competition
Egon is a chain restaurant with a menu like TGIF and an interior like the famous Norwegian pizza chain "Peppe's Pizza". I predict that this new addition to Molde's restaurant scene is going to be a hit. Prices range from 150 to 200 NOK for a main course, which is pretty much average for Norwegian standards.
The food is nicely presented and nothing bad to say about the quality. Well, being a chain restaurant, they cannot afford to slip anywhere.
Favorite Dish: I had a "Party Platter" starter, which was big enough to serve as a main dish if you're on your own, 146 NOK. Onion rings, cheese sticks, nachos and chicken wings, 3 kinds of sauce. The wings were nicely fried but bland, and could only be aten after dipping them in sauce.
Milano: Best avoided
Supposedly Italian, as the name suggests, but owned by Yugoslawians, this mock-up Italian restaurant is best avoided. I've eaten here twice in the last year, both times were very disappointing and certainly not worth the price.
Favorite Dish: This was described as a steak in red wine sauce...well, what I got were to small pieces of meat DROWNED in brown gravy...yuk. The veggies were not even cooked properly and still hard. Edible, but not enjoyable.
