Prior to our lunch at Provianten, we had a few beers at Jonas B Gundersen located in the center of town. It was very crowded both inside and out (even on a rainy day Norwegians embrace the rainy outside). It definitely had a lot of charm and is ranked #4 restaurant in Mandal on Trip Advisor so check it out. Store Elveg. 25, Mandal, Norway.
