Dining options: Late Night, Breakfast, Reservations
Description: Villa Malla is not a restaurant, but an open space for the public. All guests are equally welcome, hungry or not, and there is no obligation to dine while visiting. Just come and have a look, or enjoy an ice cream, a bottle of wine, a hot cup of coffee or a cold beer in the shade of the palms. Villa Malla also has its own beach, so remember to bring a swimsuit and sunscreen on sunny days, and jump in the water!

Villa Malla - A true Gem - perfectly situated by the fjord at Filtvet outside of Oslo.
Lunch and dinner - both created as bufféts with a wide variety of meat, salad, cold sauces and fresh fruit and cheese.

The place in itself is beautiful - an old renovated Boarding house next to a Light house, by the fjord. The restaurant consists of a big open room, with a mouthwatering buffét, eat as much as you want, to a very reasonable price. Outside you can choose to dwell under big sunscreens, or to enjoy your meal on the second deck in the sun.

A small artificial sand beach which is very childrenfriendly is found 10 meters from the restaurant - as well as a small marina, which is convenient if you want to come by boat.

Therese is even a helicopter deck - for those who choose to travel by air.

The food - is Moroccan style - with a little twist - and the buffét contains something for every taste.

I truly recommend this restaurant - and the small trip from Oslo is very worth the while!

I wanted to arrange an informal friends lunch, and tried to make a reservation. They would only let me do that if one person was to pay the whole bill. There was no possibility to make a table reservation, and people would make up their own bills at the end of the meal. We wanted to have the lunch at a restaurant to make it easy and effortless, but paying everyones bill or arranging all the reservations, food orders and payment in advance is not....

Seems lazy to serve buffets. Arrived between servings, so I decided to have coffee. Waited a long time to be seated, had to seat myself. When the waitress arrived I was rudely directed downstairs. The ice cream was manufactured, there was no indoor seating, and the staff was dressed like bums.

An unusual sort of place, with fake ( but real looking) palm trees, with a big beach near an old white lighthouse. Good lunch buffet with plenty of healthy and fun foods...Morracan style mezes. You could spend a day here in the sunshine. Takes a while to get to from Oslo.
