We are very sorry about the "smoke" it has been very cold and house is very old. We need to use all the possible fire places to keep the heat. It is cozy and we understand it can be problem for those with asthma. Hope to see you again. More

The second time I visit and the second, and last, time I get a whining attitude by the personel and head from the first step inside the door. It seems they rather not have you there as a customer. The food is ok to good and the prices quite good for the amount of food. I will not go there... More

Once a year before Christmas we go to this restaurant and enjoy a great meal. An old house sets the atmosphere and good food follows up to make it a great experience. Slightly on the expansive side but it’s still worth it.

One of the country's oldest restaurants still in business! The rooms are small but autentic, and the food is like a Norwegian kind of French cuisine! The staff serve you dressed.in old Norwegian costumes.. Both the menue and the food are first class! A fantastic place to bring foreign business partners!

Built ca 1640 - you can see the tradition in every detail in the house - located outside Oslo! Excellent food - good service.

Stopped by alone on my way to squash, and have never, before or since, been given such a once-over by the "bunad" attired hostess. Ok, I was in my training clothes, but perfectly presentable. This attitude carried through to the meal. Uninventive and boring. Pretentious. Reindeer-fillet with foie gras, pommes dauphine, port-reduction and boiled veg. Uninventive. Houses are beautiful, other... More

Walk straight into several hundred years of history and select top dishes, among them several very "home made". Couples, family, small or medium-size parties - what about a "chambre separee" ? A guearenteed memorable night out !
