The cultural foundation Fengselet (the prison) is a green oasis in the middle of Honefoss with a historical ambience and the town's finest outdoor serving. Here, you can partake in cultural arrangements for children and adults. Enjoy a good meal or take a rest on the bench in the garden. Look in at an old cell, let yourself be inspired by the art or rock yourself through the summer evening. With us, you can book venues for meetings or parties. Our unique premises are well suited for everything from board meetings to christenings and confirmations. The food is delivered from the Brasserie Fengselet. Make a choice between a simple dish and a full course party menu.

I found the menu to be more interesting than many rural Norwegian reastauraunts. They had an varied & thankfully not over inflated menu. The staff, as with most Norwegian establishments.

we dined here twice during our visit to Honefoss in November 2011. An interesting selection of main course meals and absolutely first class presentation. Visiting an old jail thats been refurbished into a fine dining experience. I'm not sure if the original inmates would have enjoyed it at much as we did.

This is arguably one of the better restaurants in Honefoss, due to the fact that the place is run by professional and well-trained chefs with an international background and a passion for food. The place itself, an old prison is interesting enough in its own right. The location is perfect as well, centrally positioned and easy to reach.

It's in the city centre of Honefoss and is probably the most typical think to see in the city. There are several events in and out. There is also a very good restaurant.
