I ordered the salmon, and it's the best salmon i've ever had. The flavors was so well put together and the salmon literaly melted in my mouth. I will defently eat there again.

We had reserved a table for a family reunion. I was impressed by the interior; the entire building had undergone a complete renovation since my last visit in 1988. The food was great, but the service was a little bit slow. When you ordered beverage they often forgot it and we had to reorder it.

They normally have a very nice array of food and this time even more special dishes to implement the city's 1000th anniversary.

It has been a while since I last dined at Festiviteten, and with the new staff I think this is now the best restaurant in Sarpsborg. In a nice and informal atmosphere we were served a delicious meal in three courses, all with hints of local produce and overall excellent cuisine. I will return to this restaurant next time I...
