This restaurant serves various gourmet food for a decent price. So if you are looking for one of the better experiences in the terms of food in the area. You will have some nicely balanced dishes accompanied with selected wines. However, as the prices are decent, the food can not compare with high end gourmet restaurants either.

They did not have a big menu (probably the reason the food was so good) but you should have no problem finding something that you like. If you dining on a budget then you are better of... More

This is a nice restaurant. Excellent Norwegian food and good European wine. Very friendly staff. But do book ahead. Recommended, though not cheap!

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.

This was a soup of Masterclass. So delicate and... More
