Classic dishes with a view

There's nothing like the combination of a beautiful view, a delicious drink in your glass and tasty things on your plate. You get all this and more at The Social Bar & Bistro, located on Ålesund's sunny south side. Here you can bring a group of friends, your extended family or a date and enjoy classic bistro dishes with a modern and perhaps unexpected twist. Not least, you can look out over the fjord and mountains while you chat about everything and nothing in a relaxing and social environment.

Your second living room?

The Social Bar & Bistro is based on the idea that we're all social creatures who want to feel belonging – especially when we're away from home in a new city or country. That's the feeling the restaurant wants to give you. Think of it as your second living room – the focus is on togetherness, comfort, cordial conversation and relaxing moments. Make the trip and enjoy everything from classic pasta dishes to juicy burgers, as there's something here for everyone. Of course there's a rich wine list and cold beer!
