With clipfish as the main focus

XL Diner is known as one of Europe's largest bacalao restaurants, and the main focus is to prepare, serve and promote Norwegian clipfish (dried, salted fish). The restaurant combines inspiration and knowledge from various corners of the world with enthusiastic employees, enabling XL Diner to offer a menu that is suitable for most people's tastes.

Ålesund's seaside location provides easy access to the very best of quality seafood. Along with internationally experienced and enthusiastic chefs we form an exceptional point of departure for a culinary journey. XL Diner is, and will always be, a bacalao restaurant, but also offers inspiring dishes not based on seafood if fish is not your cup of tea.

XL Diner is located in the heart of Ålesund, on the historical quay Skateflukaia. While waiting to be served an unforgettable meal, you can loose yourself in the marvellous view of the canal Ålesundet, Molja lighthouse and the ocean outside the windows - welcome to XL Diner!
