I could write about the views and the hotel (both wonderful) but the breakfast and dinner made me regret to have only one stomach. Just do it, totally worth it!

Yes, the price is definitely high (595NOK), but I think it's an experience to try famous Norwegian smorgasbord which makes it worth it. Plenty of choices ranging from cold cuts, fish, shellfish to hot dishes and desert. A coffee is also offered as part of...More

Don’t usually like buffets, but this one IS exceptional! Setting and view add to the dining experience. We had dinner and breakfast, both great. Amazing choices for dinner. Loved the seafood except for one odd crab dish served in shell.

The style is smorgasbord. There are more dishes than one can possibly sample. I found them all--from appetizers to desserts--delectable. The service was excellent. The setting, looking onto the fjord, was beautiful.

I liked my club sandwich and my daughter liked her fish and chips dish. Surprisingly this restaurant is not expensive. I definitely recommend one to eat here while visiting #balestrand.

An enormous smorgasbord can be wonderful or overwhelming. If in Balestrand this is a one-time must, come hungry, but not worth doing a second time - way too much food and there are other options

It's open to non-guests. Go online to find the price. If memory serves, it's something like $35 USD ... But I don't recall for certain.
