Among top 5 every year the NAF (Norwegian Automobile Association) do their reviews of road restaurants. Some local food, it is possible to buy the white goat-cheese, produced on a farm a few kms away.

Nice deco but horrible food
Bacalau was over cooked and lacking flavor
Dried cod was really dried, no imagination at all, horrible flavor
Creamy soup - a basic - was not even creamy base
Basically this is a rip off!!!!

Very nice lodge style guest house. The room was fresh and got good size. Nice and well assorted breakfast. The cafe has a limited dinner menu which could have been better. Would highly recommend the guest house for other travelers.

We ordered coffee and cake. It was ok, but not really recommendable. They have cheesecake and layer cakes.
