Amazing main course of slow smoked salmon and local vegetables. Rich Nordic pure taste. The best salmon experience over many years! Absolutely recommend!

This restaurant is offering a gourmet menu, choose 3, 4 or 5 dishes from the menu. New menu every month ofthe year. You cannot get lost, all of it is gourmet and you can choose sea food as well as tenderloin, not to forget cheese and creme brulee.

During the young olympic games we had dinner here which I will never forget. Five courses with matching wines was really unforgettable. I would have given full points but the beautiful Piemonte wine unfortunately had cork problem what was not noticed before pouring.
