Expect to be mildly pampered by the staff. They will in a low voice surprise you with small samples of food that you had not imagined. These folks are smart in pairing wine and food. Depending on day, you might be slightly put off by noise from parties occupying long tables (viking dining style).

Everything was great. The fish was excellent! Do not miss out on this restaurant when in Skien. The price is quite steep, but totally worth it. The place is clean and the interior authentic. Super nice!

6 of us dined at J & G on Saturday, when live music was provided on the patio. We all had the chili burger (which had no chili, as pointed out in the menu) - excellent! The musician performed several American folk/rock songs on acoustic guitar, and was quiet talented. Some of us had the Kissemyers beer (fun to say... More

This is the place to come and taste some of the finest food in Norway. Eating here is like having a explosion of taste in your mouth. I would say that they are one of the best restaurants in Norway.

A excellent 5 course meal with a surprisingly good winemenu. Each course was excellent, the best I've tasted for years. Expensive, but good value.

This is probably the best restaurant in Telemark. We participated in an event called Winemaker's dinner, and were treated to a five course dinner accompanied by wines from a specific winery, where the producers actually were there to tell you about the wines - great initiative and very good wines, considering the price. The food was delicious. Very delicate and... More

Quiet, intimate atmosphere and food that lives up to gourmet standards--but allow generous time for serving. Pay for enough parking time so you won't be stressed (or walk from a free lot a bit farther away).

Jacob & Gabriel definitely has the best food within the Skien and Porsgrunn area (Grenland). The food is of high quality, as is the service. The meat and fish is fresh and local. Highly recommended, but it´s a quite expensive experience - but worth it!!

We came with my mother, my wife and two sons, so we expected it to be a short meal because of the children. However, they quickly became pals with the waiter who entertained them both at our table and he also let them sit in the bar and chat between the courses. Way to go, Pontus! We actually were there...
