Very good experience

This is probably the best restaurant in the Skien/Porsgrunn area and offers very good food and nice service. The menu offers an excellent choice of local food, it is well presented and the taste is good. Very recommendable.

Locally grown food - creative dishes, variation in the menu. This restaurant has a lot to offer. The five stars go to the comprehensive beer menu paired to amazing food.

This restaurant was reviewed well for the most part on Trip Adviser, and the food was good, justifying the prices charged. The decor and ambience are also quite nice. We were having a lovely experience right up until the time we were ready to pay the check and leave. We were finished with our dessert and coffee and basically were... More

Food beautifully presented in a warm and cozy structure with old wooden floors and English menus and staff willing to answer questions. Good selection of wine and very tasty deserts

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 dinner there in November 2014... 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.

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
