Cafe was recommended to us and easy to see why. Very good service, and high-quality food. The 500gm T bone is definitely good value and delicious. 😀 We also tried the Telemark fish soup once earlier. It was equally good.

Kinokafeen was the original workers cafe located in a marvelous Art Deco building from 1935. The cafe was legendary for decades, more for beer than the food. And most Rjukanadults have great memories from their youth there. Recent years its been closed, until now when...More

This is a restaurant beside the moviehouse but it makes you feel it is a canteen because you order your food at the cashier and then you are told by the employee to get your own plate and utensils and bring it to your table....More

Rjukans oldest and most traditional cafe opened July 14, 2015 The traditional Kinokafeen housed in the protected Rjukan house that was finished in 1930, then as the People's House. We can tempt with snacks, cakes and ala carte menu. The new concept for Kinokafeen cooperates with "Taste of Telemark" who bet heavily on getting locally produced quality food from Telemark on dining place.
