Restaurant Østen: The southern version of the East
On the second floor of the main pedestrian road (Name+number) is "Restaurant Østen" ("The East"). The interior is fancy, the food is quite on the regular side. When staff understood we were familar with "the east" less blandness was disernable...
The big item appeared to be a Mongolian buffet. Now, I have been to Mongolia, but never saw a Mongolian buffet, so with all that basic knowledge....
We stuck to Sechuan dishes: scampi/broccoli, stirfried pork as mains and spring rolls/chicken soup for starters. Good portions, so no need for additional dishes. Veggies/salad was served with each dish. I guess the Italian dressing was not from the east...
Favorite Dish: I'd stick to sea food in this city and in an oriental restaurant - as per private regulation. But the pork was reportedly good, too.

Bjartmars Favorittkro: for a great Bacalao
Eating the local fish-speciality "Bacalao" was included in the price of the Hurtigruten-daytour from Kristiansund. 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.

Egon: We liked it!
We liked its atmosphere and of course the food they serve. But I most appreciate they have in the children menu not only hamburgers and chips, but as well a healthy choice: salmon with baked potatoes.
Paddys Pub: Best steak around!!
Be sure to vist this place before it closes. It`s soon becoming a shoppingmall!! The poor owner has to shut the place down to give room for a god damned shoppingcentre!!
Favorite Dish: Juciest burgers and steaks in town. Also great irish stew, even if the owner is norwegian.
Egon: Pizza and steak
There are several Egon restaurants around Norway. I do not know whether the kitchen holds the same quality in all of them, but I can recommend the one in Kristiansand. Among other things they serve pizza, steak, taco and lasagne.
Favorite Dish: I loved the bacon-wrapped tenderloin with baked potatoe, and the others were very satisfied with their choises, too. Even though we were full, we just had to taste the delicious bananasplit for deserts :-)

Casablanca: Good food at Caledonien
Casablance is located in the Radisson SAS Caledonien Hotel, ground floor. The interior decoration and the place as such is weird: it is as if the decorators could not decide wether to go for a movie theme or a maritime one. So, here's the mix...
The service is very good, the food excellent, and you do not need to kill your entire budget in one go in order to taste good food.
The restaurant has very few items on the menu.That generally vouches for great self-conficence on part of the chef and excellent food in Norway. Mainly "new" Norwegian dishes, that is, fusion-inspired, with Norwegian raw materials.
Favorite Dish: The dish of the day was mixed braised ling and salomon with an interesting sauce and poached potatoes, salad served alongside. Very good, tolerable price. My companion had the wolf fish which was higher priced and apparently extrmely good. Good choice of wines to go with the dishes - the kitchen knew this side of life very well...
