Recommended Restaurent by a friend. Food was fantastic. Trout, reindeer and cloudberries made for a great meal. If our Norwegian was better (we have none) it might have been less confusing for the young focussed waiter. Wine here is a bit expensive... Bu wine its is very extensive.

We got a warm welcome in this restaurant. The food is excellent. A good choice of exquise plates. My wife and daughter choose a trout. I prefered the Raindeer. My son ate the deer. The raindeer has been prepared perfectly as well all the other plates. We ordered a nice wine from the extensive wine card. Take your time to... More

This charming wooden chalet restaurant is situated near to the station with a wonderful view over Geilo and the slopes. The service was friendly and I was impressed how the waiter managed the wine which I ordered: very professionally decanted and presented. There is a very extensive wine list! The food was excellent and beyond expectation. We started with a... More

The ambiance is nice as well, something I also missed in previous Norwegian restaurants. 4/5 because of the prices. I... More

One of the most classic place to eat in Geilo. The quality of the food is second to none. The wine list is just incredible. The staff were friendly and easy to communicate in English. Worth the trip !

Been at this restaurant twice, once March 2016 and once March 2015. The highlight of both visits were the reindeer main course. Excellent dish and was why we went back the second time even if the service was quite poor the first visit. The starters and desserts were good. The decor is ok or bad depending on where you get...

A very nice restaurant with excellent local food from the mountain areas. Good service and a very nice wine cellar.

Lovely, cosy decor with reasonably private tables for an intimate feast. Food and service are both as perfect as I could imagine. My partner is vegan and there is nothing vegan on the menu, but we were assured that the chef could rise to the challenge and indeed produced food that both looked and tasted like a work of art....

I seldom give 5 stars, this was expensive but well worth it! Great quality of the food and wine. Service also nice even though the waiter was a trainee. Got the recipe for the apple financier, a dessert. Nice furniture national paintings. Might visit again tomorrow...

What a little gem! Like the rest of Norway, winced at the prices - but my word was it worth every Krona! Waiter was attentive, spoke perfect English and was helpful in describing things. We only went for the main (would have had 3 courses had we not been on a shoestring budget) and it was delightful. I had the... More
