Great food, with amazing tastes from local produce. Our waitress was very friendly and informative with great pairing of wines with each course. Well worth a visit when in Skien

I had a business dinner here in August. The weather was lovely and we could sit outside with the water view. There were suggestions for three, four, five and more courses. My colleagues and I all went for the three course menu. The food was absolutely delicious and the wine that followed well-chosen. I will absolutely come here again, and... More

Skien is celebrating Henrik Ibsens birthday and many restaurants offers a meal at 100 kroner. When we arrived to the restaurant it was almost empty, but as we did´t have a reservation we had to wait until a table was made available to us. We went for a three course special to 345,- kroner and one of us with wine... More

They call themselves a gourmet restaurant, but adds the prefix folk- to make it less snobbish. The food is all right, the presentation of the meals are a bit annoying, and sometimes unwillingly humorous. I guess the waiters are so obsessed of making the presentation thinking this is the gourmet-part, they absolutely forgets to be discrete and to have attention... More

Hi Thank you for the detailed feedback to us. We added the prefix folke- to communicate that here you can come as you are, suit or ripped jeans, and get good food with a casual ambiance.
