“An unexpected pleasure”
Reviewed November 22, 2013

Usually, one doesn't equate motel restaurants with "fine dining" and "healthy food" but this restaurant, located at The Nordic Inn in Dorset, proves that wrong. The menu is packed with very tasty, healthy choices, including gluten-free products, something I'm sensitive to because a member of my family has celiac disease. While there, I enjoyed chicken soup, beef stroganoff, paninis, fish and buckwheat pancakes with fresh fruit. Everything was home-made and tasty. It was really convenient to have a good restaurant attached to the motel so you didn't have to travel into town to eat. Owners Marina and Andre were very friendly and accommodating.

“New owners - great service”
Reviewed September 9, 2012

We did not plan staying in Nordic Inn because we red a year ago about that place. The reviews were not very nice. But it happened that in one of the stores in Dorset we had a conversation about dining in the area. The lady mentioned the Nordick Inn and recommended to eat there because the new owners had transformed the old and dirty motel into a nice and clean place.
We had a great experience! My 7 years old loved the food (mind that this is healthy food restaurant). The menu is balanced, comfortable to understand and make your choice. The owner is a professional nutritionist with a creative approach to food. So if you are a bacon eater or a vegetarian who never tried a quinoa salad, or a sweets lover, you will find something you like there.
