Local produce and a menu that changes daily. Chef and his crew made us breakfast to take on our hike one morning and their attention to every detail made for an amazing trip.

From our arrival to our departure at Norde Ekre, the service was outstanding. Our reserved table was waiting with a handwritten note welcoming us. The food was exceptional. Chef Ekre and Chef Johansen created an interesting and well-balanced menu with a lightly smoked salmon first course and a perfectly prepared duck breast entree with a delicious sweet ending. The setting... More

The menu is a set 3 course fare structured around local seasonal produce. We had a lightly smoked salmon and artichoke soup (excellent and luxurious), veal with mushrooms, puy lentils, asparagus and summer potatoes-... More

The location within the Nordre Ekre farm-hotel and the view of the mountains and river below is stunning. The wooden houses that conform the complex are lovely. The restaurant is decorated in a minimalistic style yet manages to feel very cozy. There is a set menu (3 or 4 courses) and the chef -prior reservation- kindly prepared a vegan menu... More

We stayed at Nordre Ekre just one night, but I will remember our dinner at Nordre Ekre for a long time. Most of the ingredients were local, and assembled in an inspired and thoughtful way. The pepper-marinated trout starter and the spiced berries with whipped sour cream for dessert will stay with me a long time. The wine list is... More

I came here with relatives who have a Norwegian heritage. We loved the food and the beautifully furnished restaurant. A real Norwegian delight.

Not so easy to find this farm, but it lay up on the side of the valley in the sun. The welcome from Marit Ekre was friendly and she showed us the rooms. There are several logg buildings where they have done a fantastic job and the bedrooms, not to mention the bathrooms are top quality. They have a lounge,... More

We had a deliciuos dinner of tenderloin and French potatoes. And, the peak of the meal was the exquisite selection of Norwegian cheeses, one tasting better than the other.
