Scenic location, lots of history and amazing seasonal Norwegian food. If they still have the reindeer it is much recommended. Place to go for special occasions when wanting to maximize your baller lifestyle

A fantastic summer day and an unforgettable lunch in Norways Oldest Restaurant dates back to 1640! Incredible food with organic vegetables, home made special bread and a variety to choose from coming to drinks. The buildings are really old and well held, the decorations and various sections in the garden beautiful.

Wonderful place and food! And the atmosphere is of course splendid as well, the charm of this place is simply to hard to describe for me to even try. Our family celebration dinner for 21 persons was simply perfect. Thank you SO much to the friendly staff!

First visit to Norway on a business trip and got taken out to dinner in this little gem. Very interesting menu including, elk, venison, goose liver, king crab and much more and lovely home made beer (no jumping trough EU regulations here!). Staff and service excellent. Wonderful experience

The second time I visit and the second, and last, time I get a whining attitude by the personel and head from the first step inside the door. It seems they rather not have you there as a customer. The food is ok to good and the prices quite good for the amount of food. I will not go there... More

Once a year before Christmas we go to this restaurant and enjoy a great meal. An old house sets the atmosphere and good food follows up to make it a great experience. Slightly on the expansive side but it’s still worth it.
