Limited menu but beautifully prepared and cooked food. Excellent home made beef burger and freshly caught fish served by friendly staff. We had lunch and enjoyed it so much we went back the following day.

...I can recall. Traditional Norwegian Cuisine with a twist at its best. And certainly not to be expected in that beautiful yet sleepy fisherman's village (sleepy at least in early June). First time ever I have seen a seagull's egg on a menu and needless...More
