Been to this place a number of times over the years, but never before submitted a review. Time to correct this. As stated I have come here probably 20-30 times over the past 10 years. Both privatem, and with clients. Sometimes for dining only, and other times with the full hotel package. The food is outstanding, especially for gourmands. The... More

I overnighted at the hotel at had a business dinner at the restaurant. The restaurant has a good reputation, but I was exceptionally disappointed with my meal. They seemed so obsessed with providing a trendy, gourmet experience that it was absurd. Opting out of the fish choice for my business meal (and in my mind prepared to receive either meat... More

Had a perfect 7 course dinner at Engø Gård last weekend. We opted for the wine pairing, which is a must. I don't think I have experienced a better job in terms of matching wine with food. Every dish was an experience although this is a pricey experience, it is well worth it. What made the experience so incredibly perfect... More

I love love love Engø Gård! The food is always amazing! The view and little cottages make you feel like you are in a different era, and the staff is so professional and accommodating! Their wine is beyond amazing, especially if you take their set wine menu for your food! They serve afternoon tea which is just darling! Loose tea... More

Situated in Tjome, Engo Gard Hotel & Restaurant offers 5-star accommodation, as well as outdoor tennis courts, a sauna and an indoor pool. The food and service is out of this world! Highly recommended!

Very good food and wine all weekend. Nice surroundings. Some of the staff a bit to young (unprofessional) but overall very very good. I'll be back.

Fantastic food and wine selection. Service is good, but not as a Michelin restaurant. Rather small space but good for a minor group.

We were looking forward to Afternoon-tea a nice summer day and were disappointed. The scones were dry and also two of the cakes. It may be said that we asked for ham sandwiches instead of salmon since one of us didn´t eat salmon, which was served without question. Staff we found very young and very unprofessional. Plates and knives were... More

I've visited this place several times, both in business and privately, and also stayed the night on occasions. This time we went for a "jazz-lunch", and on a rare, beautiful summer day with cool jazz from a superb trio, we got off to a great start. As for the food, well - the starter, a salmon tartar tasted absolutely nothing.... More

Went here for Sunday lunch and had a fantastic experience. Great attentive service and the food was fantastic. They use local ingredients and every aspect of the plate was prepared to perfection. Interesting flavor combinations combined with traditional french techniques. Will no doubt come back here for more.

Description
The restaurant at Engo Gard is inspired by both french and nordic cousine with the use of local produce. Menus at Engo Gard are set by the chef in advance. Hence most of our guests place responsibility firmly in our hands when it comes to choosing food and wine. This requires a great commitment on our part as we must constantly focus our knowledge and ideas on providing the best possible combination of dishes and wines. The restaurant and hotel are open all year.
