When Stian Fjæreide and his partner Annkatrin Sæterøy first opened the restaurant together with Bjørn and Ann-Charlotte Hyge, the aim was to open a Norwegian bistro with local, simple food and a menu that was constantly evolving. “We originally started at a restaurant 50 metres from where we are now, where we could seat 28 people – but we quickly became quite busy and realised 28 isn’t a lot. We wanted to be in Bakklandet, so when a bigger spot opened up down the road, we decided to move,” explains Fjæreide. Seating up to 100 guests throughout the main restaurant, bar, lounge and private dining room, Fjæreide also runs bakery and pub Brøøl.
