A place to dine

The fine dining scene in Ålesund has some remarkable players, but none as interesting as those located in the fish-packing district which also is home to our hotel.


Sjøbua is a vibrant and casually elegant seafood restaurant by the beloved Brosundet in Ålesund's thriving fish packing district. Sjøbua blurs the lines between a bistro and fine dining: relaxed and down to earth, yet sophisticated and cosmopolitan.
