This is a small, quiet restaurant with excellent food and Service. It is run by a young couple, he is the chef, she is the vaitress.

Booking months ahead for a group of people. Specified where we wanted to sit, still got the worst seating. Our group was placed at the entry of the restaurant. which means all guests need to pass us and the door is 2 meters from our...back. A cold experience. When arrived the restaurant became half full us included. still took over 1 hour to get food. The waiter startet to manage what we should eat and how. and mixed up our orders because he did not want to take notes - which I asked him for. The menu has small and normal portions for food which you can choose from. some of the guests want 2 small - to try more, but that was to hard for the waiter to serve. Honestly I did not understand why he could not serve all mains with the first small portion and bring the small portion selected for a second round after. In that way we would all eat at the same time. Poorly managed. The waiter smiled all evening, but he came with an attitude fare from a smile. I had the duck, meat was really good, however the negative was with the duck skin. That is thick. If you serve with the skin that has to be crisp! Howe come chiefs don't know this? Duck skin is too chewy to eat if not crisp and also quite disgusting. I will not come back any time soon.More

This small and charming restaurant i Sandvika presents the most delicious courses from their tiny kitchen. The service is friendli and personal without being intrusive. The menu offers two different portion sizes and the wine list is perfectly matched with the dishes. Always be sure...to book a table.More

we went to the restaurant on i Friday night for dinner. Rather small restaurant, but yet excellent food and service. Modern, Nordic dishes - lots of taste and suprising combinations. Good wine list. Recommended!

I went there for my BD with my 15yo daughter. Inside is nice and cozy not that big restaurant. I've notice that there were most of customer were senior or adults. Very relaxing atmosphere. We ordered 2 Appetizers and 2 main dishes. Appetizers came fast...though main dishes came almost more than one hours later because there was only one waitress and one cook were working. I think there were 5 pairs including me in that restaurant, it looked very difficult for them to handle all of those orders in right time. That is the reason why I pointed core normal. Waitress was nice but she could not serve enough for all customer by her selves. It was shame. Waiting time was long. Those 2 points made me to score down compare to other points. Sorry for that. とても感じのいいこじんまりしたレストラン。 料理もおいしくウェイトレスも頑張ってましたが、一人しかいないのでサービスが行き届かなかなかったのが残念です。また、コックも1人なので、前菜はまもなく出ましたが、メイン料理が1時間以上もかかり、娘がおなかがすいて困りました。 それがとても残念です。More

An absolute favourite among the restaurants I know. Carefully selected ingredients, the dishes can all be ordered in different sizes, and used as starters or main courses. Only ingredients are listed on the menu - no fancy flashy language, what counts is the food, nothing...else. And the quality of the food - fantastic. Great attention, too - and not too expensive (compared of course to other restaurants of similar quality in Norway. Do not expect a cheap meal!). Gluten free kitchen. Great atmosphere. What more could we ask for?More

What a fantastic place! Great service and really wonderful food. Really. I did not have my hopes up too high because I am biased about Sandvika, but this was really a great surprise. Super service and rare ingredients made for an experience I would like...to repeat again very soon!!More
