Spicy thai dishes and some new exiting dishes served by an enthusiastic knowledable staff. Small but good meny and vine chart. Not your average restaurant in a small norwegian town. Well worth visiting,

They claime to serve you Asian Street Food, but it feels more like fine dining. This is the best place for Asian food in Telemark. You can go by the set menu or just pick small dishes on your own. Good chef and good service. Small place with few tables makes for intimate dining - enjoy!

I mostly don't write reviews but this place was so wonderful I could not not write a review. Honest food and pure flavours at a reasonable price (norwegian standards). Very helpful and friendly staff!

A cute and cozy atmosphere, coupled with excellent food and service with a smile. Definitely the best place to go for a meal and a lovely glass of wine. And the weekend atmosphere is nice as well for us thirty-something's. Highly recommended!

Very small and cosy, has a nice outdoor area for a nice day. Food was great as was the service. The kitchen is tiny, surprised they can turn out such great food but top marks to them for that.

Friisebrygga is such a lovely place. It´s definitely tiny, with its three-four tables, so it might be worth to book a table ahead. They offer really great tapas, the food is high quality and fresh. Also, they have a small bar, so you don´t have to eat if you don´t want to. It´ll definitely be a visit that you won´t... More

Fantastic atmosphere & food. The food tastes homemade and real. Local meats and seafood makes it all worthwhile. Friendly and nice. They adjusted the food to the children, and everybody was happy!
