This historic inn, built in 1640 by King Christian !V, has been renowned for years for its outstanding food and service. It is worthy of the praise today. Their menu is not extensive but more than adequate and offers authentic Norwegian fare, many of which ingredients are locally grown. I held a big birthday celebration there several years ago with...

This is one of the best places to taste authentic Norwegian food in traditional, cozy surroundings . We had our wedding dinner there. The staff was very hospitable and the food was amazing. We ordered the 3 course Chef's recommendation accompanied with great wine, which was a good value. We will definitely come back here.

We had booked for a group having dinner and I was a bit worried when I read the previous negative report from a lady, who had written many, many reports, but this time she was really annoyed about things here. Never-the-less we kept the booking, and I can only say........fantastic ! The food, fish both starter and main, were cooked... More

Scenic location, lots of history and amazing seasonal Norwegian food. If they still have the reindeer it is much recommended. Place to go for special occasions when wanting to maximize your baller lifestyle

A fantastic summer day and an unforgettable lunch in Norways Oldest Restaurant dates back to 1640! Incredible food with organic vegetables, home made special bread and a variety to choose from coming to drinks. The buildings are really old and well held, the decorations and various sections in the garden beautiful.

Wonderful place and food! And the atmosphere is of course splendid as well, the charm of this place is simply to hard to describe for me to even try. Our family celebration dinner for 21 persons was simply perfect. Thank you SO much to the friendly staff!

First visit to Norway on a business trip and got taken out to dinner in this little gem. Very interesting menu including, elk, venison, goose liver, king crab and much more and lovely home made beer (no jumping trough EU regulations here!). Staff and service excellent. Wonderful experience
