Nice and not inexpensive in Skien, Norway

On the shore of the river, the restaurant Jacob & Gabriel is situated in very nice surroundings, with the dining room in a totally rustic and 'authentic' packhouse where you'd expect a young Marlon Brando to walk in for a meal after doing a scene from 'On the Water Front'. A friend and I had... read more

I've eaten at this restaurant twice. And it will be more! They have excellent food, combining fresh and tasty food into delicate dishes. The waitresses have good knowlegde about what they serve you, and tell you about it.

We had a lovely meal here, with nice wine and a very pleasant server. All in all a great dinner which we would love to do again. Highly recommendable.

Wife bought a chicken dish, I got a tenderloin and kids git a burger with everything. The chicken and steak was beyond perfect. The burgers were so good that I almost wished I could order them. They truly have everything. But these are not kids burgers and the menu does not have under 10 year old menu. Allin all a... More

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
