The building which houses Restaurant Maren Anna was built in 1914. To begin with it was a cod-liver oil factory, but later became a cannery. Today it is a restaurant with bright and cozy premises that help emphasise the building’s fascinating architecture. The name “Maren Anna” was derived from a sloop that used to be moored at the quayside nearby.
