The restaurant at Engo Gard is inspired by both french and nordic cousine with the use of local produce. Menus at Engo Gard are set by the chef in advance. Hence most of our guests place responsibility firmly in our hands when it comes to choosing food and wine. This requires a great commitment on our part as we must constantly focus our knowledge and ideas on providing the best possible combination of dishes and wines. The restaurant and hotel are open all year.

Outstanding choise and 'combo' of elements in the set Menu, ( go for the full Monty). The suggestion of beverage suits fine, too. But to be honest, a look at the wine list should be mandatory, -surprisingly filled Wine Cellar, ( but used to be even better in earlier years? ) Speaking of drinks... read more

We´ve been to Engo Gard at several times over the last few years, both staying the night and eating at their restaurant. This time I was very disappointed with their service level, to that extent that I really won't be getting back anytime soon. Took my mother and grandmother for lunch on a weekday. I did intend to reserve a... More

We called for a reservation and got a table for four same day. Weather was excellent, and the outdoor environment was really relaxing. No problem arriving in a boat. We chose the 7 dish meny, - with an additional foie gras, - together with the wine meny. The whole meal was excellent, relaxing and vitalizing. Can absolutely be compared with... More

Engo gard is situated about half an hour from the city of Tonsberg. Public transportation does not run frequently. I reccomend a car, and that you stay the night. It really adds to the experience. And the breakfast is to die for! We were having dinner here the last day they were open before the holidays. - Service was excellent.... More

Great food, excellent wines. Inspiration menu and fish menu choices - both great ( so good we ate two nights). As is to be expected in Norway the prices are not exactly a bargain, but you get what you pay for.

We arrived early to enjoy the day at this beautiful place. The hotel was at best half full. Even then we were told that our room was not ready before 1500? Strange when there were no others around. In the mean time we had a good lunch in the house restaurant. Finally We got our room which indeed was a... More

The location is pittoresque and simply adorable. And the meal will be one of the best of your life. Simply wonderful. But, yes, as another reviewer say, you pay for it. But, every now and then one should splurge a bit.
