The food is OK, but variable. As a whole, the food seems to be the weakest part of the Fretheim Hotel experience. Breakfasts were good (but not spectacular), for example this is one of the rather few hotels where a soft boiled egg really is soft boiled. Lunch and dinner were rather variable, some good (chicken) some below par (risotto,... More

Very reasonable price for buffet breakfast. Selections comparable to US buffets. You also get a nice view. Receptionist very friendly and helpful.

A seafood smorgasbord to rival any I've experienced. A Pavlova dessert station. Excellent wine list. Delicious salads, veggies, soups, cheese boards, fruits. And other meats if you're not a fan of fresh seafood of every type. All in a splendid large dining room overlooking the Flam wharf. The breakfast is as impressive as well.

stayed for one night and had both dinner and breakfast. Typical buffet style meals with extensive selection. Service was great and meals were great. I sense that it could be exceedingly busy depending on the train and harbor traffic. There really is not a lot of choice in Flam which makes the Hotel a solid choice for a fine meal.

We had a pick of many food choices eating at the buffet. All were good. We had lamb, pork roast, roast beef and salmon as main courses. The salad area had many types of smoked/pickled fish and a wide range of vegetables. There was a good cheese board for dessert along with cake and other choices. All for ~475 NK... More

Menu is not large but satisfactory. Very tasty. Located within the hotel. Wait staff was a pleasure as they hire young people from other countries to come to work and it a pleasure talking with them.
