“Overpriced dinner buffet”

The Laxen is Rica Sunnfjord hotel's restaurant so you will likely have dinner and breakfast there. While the latter was offering a magnificent buffet (and would easily get 5/5) the former was a different experience for me and my wife. We were tired from a long drive and so decided to have dinner without living the hotel. We have been offered a buffet that had two different types of meat (beef and veal), some vegetables (boiled) and a slew of desserts. This was well below our expectations and turned out to cost an excess of EUR 80 to our room's bill - we could eat much better at McDonald's for a fraction of that price!
Do yourself a favour and avoid this place if only the buffet is available, as it is only an expensive disappointment.

Went there to have a nice dinner with my wife. The selection of restaurants in Forde is not wide, and this is probably the best one. We were really chocked when we got the wine list, the prices were around 4 x the already high prices at the state owned liquor store! We ended up buying a Cremant de Bourgogne at NOK 561,-. As a started we had lobster soup, it tasted good but was rather salt. As main we had the steak with mushrooms and creamed potatoes. The biff was ok, the sauce was very salt. The cremant was opened by the head waiter, and we were left with a few very inexperienced waiters. We waited for more cremant to be served, but gave up and did it ourselves. Our advice to the restaurant is 1) Reduce the price margin on the wine. This will make the guests more satisfied, and my guess is that they will sell more wine and earn more money. 2) Inexperienced waiters is OK if the guests are informed 3) Reduce the salt in the courses.
On the positive side is that we had a very nice window table, and the waiters were polite.

certainly for families. If you don't mind pizza, there are other places in Forde along with an average Chinese restaurant but if you want to sample a varied Norwegian menu done properly (it's a serious hotel with serious chefs, conferences and so on) Laxen is probably the most reliable bet in Forde.

The dinner and breakfast buffet in this restaurant got everything you need..
For dinner there are fish, shrimps, salmon, lobster, meat, bred, pasta, potatoes +++
And the dessert table is just as dangerous!

For breakfast you got everything you would need from a breakfast.. It keeps excellent Rica standard!
