Stopped for lunch a Sunday afternoon. Had been here a few times before, but was not impressed. This time though, it was all much better.
The location is off course the same, with the nice view at the Tyrifjorden Lake. The buffet style lunch was far better than last time, and the service too was upped.
Not the largest of choices, but fresh and tasty. The fish and the meat tender, and they even had a go on some sushi (points for trying, but it didn't fly...).
An other disappointment was the crayfish. Most of them were so small I bet they were not legal to catch. Those few who had the size were virtually tasteless. Try your own food once in a while, cause that's not good enough!
Okay, apart from that, the rest was good. What lifted it from 3 to 4 stars from me, was solely the dessert dept. It was great. Lot's of homemade sweets and puddings, a real treat for a Norwegian!
So, all in all, a lot better than my last visits, the food way better (but can still improve), and the service better as well, but can also still improve.
