"Store koldt bord" buffet dinner. Wide selection of seafood, along with traditional meats (lamb, pork, and beef; no reindeer). Most of the dishes have great flavor. Visit as many times as you like.  Wine costs extra. Skip the salad bar, and leave room for dessert.  If you reserve a table of two to four, you will be seated in the... More

Here is an excerpt from my blog... Later that evening, we made our way to the main dining room. Masses of tour groups shuffled on through, all with that glassy, tourist glaze- camera happy, touching everything and oblivious to anyone not in the tour group. They annoyingly consumed every inch of spare space within the dwelling. They spilled out onto... More

Could not fault the presentation and choices available. Wide variety of both hot and cold courses,especially Salmon. A dessert lover's paradise.

Five various meat dishes and five fish. Also, many choicxes for each part of the meal. Wait staff most efficient and friendly. The large dining room was... More

Bread for the toast was stale. Bacon for an egg was the size of a postage stamp and completely hidden under the fried egg, so even they must be embarrassed by what they offer. I looked at the buffet dinner but at 565kr, i could not justify for what i saw, so ate al a carte instead which was ok,... More

Having being in town for two nights we were unsure spending both nights eating here as maybe we could have sussed out another eatery, however we were stoked. buffet meals including something for everyone, fish, meat, cheeses, salads and yummy desserts. The only reason for loss of a point is service, very inconsistent, some friendly, some very quiet, some may... More

We had both the breakfast and dinner buffets while staying at this gem of a hotel. The food is excellent with many choices. Excellent seafood, meats (including Elk) cheeses, fruits, great desserts. They have a very nice wine list, with many choices from all over the world. All of this while looking at the amazing Sognefjord. I cannot recommend this... More

We did not stay here but enjoyed the restaurants over two nights. We had good meals in the bar area lobby restaurant and in the main dining. The buffet was excellent and was a splurge with the price but we were able to experience many different Norwegian specialties. Enjoyed the piano player after dinner. Had a beautiful fjord view, charming... More
