“Marvellous!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

If you are looking for awsome atmosphere, excellent food and wine card - this is where you need to go! The restaurant lies within the fortress on top of the hill above Halden, quite a setting. The quality of the food is amazing and you'll be attended courteously throughout the evening...

“Best restaurant in Østfold”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2012

If you ever come to Halden or Østfold, and looking for a great meal in an ancient atmosphere, you ought to go there. They perform a perfect meal with great profession and taste. The staff are really into their profession, and have a great passion for cooking. The waiters have high standards, and they tell you about every dish. Wanna taste fresh salmon, and then I mean just hours, go there, order and enjoy. Be sure to make reservations. Small restaurant, great taste. Great use of local rawmaterials with the best quality to get in the area.

“Hidden gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2011

I have visited Curtisen on a few occasions, both privately and with customers.
Curtisen is a hidden gem. Using only local produce, the kitchen brings out world class courses served by a professional and friendly staff. Combined with their excellent selection on wines, an evening here has always been a success.

HIghly recommended.
