Smia Fish Restaurant ("Smithy")


The cosy, small building that houses the Smia Fish Restaurant dates from 1787. It used to be a boathouse, but was also the premises of a smithy for 200 years. The restaurant, with its original log walls intact, is a part of the Norwegian Coastal Culture Centre in Vågen. The food served is based primarily on traditional dishes from Nordmøre, where various types of fish are the most important ingredient, e.g. the klippfish and the "blandaball". Smia has been awarded prizes for its cuisine twice.Smia Fish Restaurant has become an attraction in Kristiansund. Catering. Smia has kept quite a lot of old things.
