A cozy restaurant with great fish and beer. It was head and shoulders above the so called smorgasbord in the main dining room which seemed to have more American dishes than those from Norway.

We ate in this restaurant twice during our 5 day stay in Balestrand. Like the Ciderhuset, the food was excellent. The sauces whihc accompany food in Norway are better than I have tasted anywhere. Very light delicate. Although this restaurant is in essence situated in the lobby, It is a good size and screened all round. It is not noisy and the ambience is very good. Our meal of haddock with a bacon and dill sauce, was so good we ordered the same the following night. The cost at £22 pp was very reasonable considering the quality of the food, the standard of the hotel and the friendly and quick service.

The Balholm Bar is located in the lobby of the Kniknes Hotel. We opted to have dinner ordering off their a la carte menu. The trout was good as was the lamb. We had 1 glass of wine & 1 draft beer and also shared a dark chocolate mousse dessert with a berry sauce. Food and service were good. Cost for 2 was 710 NOK or $120 USD. Hotel lobby and bar area were not crowded on the evening we dinned there.

If you are looking for an intimate restaurant, this is not the place since it is located in a hotel lobby. But the food is very good. The burgers are my favorites.
