Great winelist but at best mediocre food. Pizza (Diavola) was not good tastes like "grandiosa". Drink wine and avoid the food!

Amazing wine list with incredible choice is why we chose to visit. We had a great sharing board to start. One of us ordered a soup to start and it just didn’t turn up... they ran out apparently which we found out when we asked...why it never came. Main courses of duck and wild elk & deer stew were delicious. Some of the veggies could have been a little more cooked but flavour couldn’t be faulted. We would have had dessert but one of the two dessert were sold out!! Overall a bit disappointing if we are honest. It’s not like they were full and extremely busy. Then when it came time for our shuttle home the driver had disappeared 😳More

Lovely setting on mountain; good and very comfortable as a pit stop for lunch. Much nicer than the canteens on the mountain or at the foot of the lifts. Really good pizza and amazing ambience if you get into the restaurant area. We went twice...during our week long ski trip and were not disappointed.More

My daughter and I used to stop here to take kakao (hot chocolate) and kanelboller (cinnamon buns). Skigaarden is well located in the skiing area, and modern in style. However, price is a bit high, so no top score.

The resort is a perfect mix between cottage style and refinement, built with great taste !! Very qualified and professional staff,...kind and friendly, this is important to feel welcomed and pampered !! Restaurant, we had a great experience, absolutely fantastic food, really high quality, carefully selected, a choice of incredibly fused ingredients for a really delicious palate experience, gourmet pizza .... wooooow .... one of the best pizzas that have eaten in norway, great competence and creativity in the presentation of the dish, certainly food prepared with love and passion !!! Chefs and staff very pleasant and helpful .... what to say, we will definitely be back !!! Thanks for everything, we will be back very soonMore

I’ve been eating at this beautiful restaurant several time and each time I was very satisfied. In the weekends the restaurant is really busy but the service and the food is always on spot. I tried the vintergryte and was a perfect meal for a...cold snowy day. The pasta offers are also good, the best bolognese sauce I ever taste! The pizzas here are excellent. Highly recommendedMore

This place has a decent pizza menu and the pizza is good. It’s a bit over priced but it’s not bad price compared to normal Norwegian prices. Stay away from the cinnamon buns, they are very dry and there are better in the ski resort.

There is a sit down restaurant here, with table service. I can't talk about that. We ordered the pizza at the counter, some beer and a salad. Each were fine. Service was friendly. And sitting in the sun on the deck was lovely. The restaurant...is a bit to the side of the resort, easy to ski to but I imagine it doesn't get the crowds that the other places get, at base or top of 8 chair. That plus pizza may be reason enough to eat here.More

We waited for more than an hour to get our food and even then 3 plates where missing. More than 2 hours later the last one arrived and all we got was half price on one dish. The waiter seemed uninterested and didn't even have...the key to the wine cellar. The music during lunch hour was so loud that we could bearly speak across the table. The only thing that saved them from not recieving a 1 in rating was the food.More

skigården was an amazing experience in the middle of the ski slopes. Great italian style pizzas and delicious food. They serve home made pasta dishes and tasty salades for lunch and pizzas. The pizzeria offers a new trend with a black dough pizza, never seen...in Norway before, surprising and delicious. it`s nice to taste something new and uncommon. The service is quick and warm, make you feel welcome and unique. The restaurant may be really busy in the weekends, so is better to skip the rush hours if you want to sit and enjoy your meal without many people around you. i will be back!More

Came back to a new season to find out that the concept has changed - not possible to get a “kvikk lunch” a bun or some small snack when you have a coffee break from the slopes. It took almost 40 min to get a...coffee/beer and the same time to pay! For someone who wants a quick lunch or a coffee break, not the place to stop.More

Skigaarden is a great venue in the middle of the slopes in Hemsedal Skicenter. They have a burger restaurant, a pizza restaurant and an alacarte restaurant. Very Nice Place!! The pizza this season is the best pizza i ever taste in Norway, it was like...the best quality from italy. WOW. Service was also Nice. 2 negative Things: The Music was way to loud for a restaurant and the coffee was terribel. Two very easy Things to change for a top score.More
