The whole experience is amazing, the restaurant was very cozy with a nice view, plus you can have a better view from the roof. The only downside is the high price.

This just opened last year and is amazing. They pick up at the port, a five minute ride to the lift. The facility at the top includes a restaurant, bar, and deck with views of both the fjord and the lake.
