We stayed at a hotel in the area, and wanted to have one dinner that stood out from the rest, and booked a four course dinner at Walaker. It was a great experience, with very good food, and excellent wine pairing. This is not Michelin standard at all, but rather very high quality food in a cozy environment, and with very good service. Well worth the time and money!
Walaker Hotel is a charming waterfront hotel in the middle of a gorgeous garden. Our room in the annex was well equipped and tastefully furnished. A small patio with comfortable chairs offered a great view to the fjord. Dinner however was a big disappointment. Although we had made a reservation some months before and had asked for a nice table. We were then offered a table near a gangway between two rooms. We immediately noticed that a draught between these two rooms would disturb our dinner (my wife is very sensitive to draughts) and asked the restaurant manager Diego K. for a better table. He reacted quite angry and impolite and first would not let us have a different table although the restaurant was nearly empty. First we wanted to leave the restaurant but since the dinner was part of the already paid half board and there were no other possibilities to have dinner in Solvorn we decided to stay. Then all of a sudden Diego K. told us that we could take any table we wanted to have. His behaviour was absolutely unprofessional. We decided on another table and had our meal. We had chosen pairing wines to our dinner and the sommelier (= restaurant manager) explained all other guest in the room the types of wine he had chosen and he poured the wine into their glasses. And so he went from one table to another, but he ignored us completely, he avoided pouring and explaining the wine, so a nice young waitress had to come and serve us. The quality of the meal was not convincing. The evening dinner (same for all guests) started with an interesting celery soup. The following pea risotto was visually remarkable: It came as greenish-white clump, lukewarm and oversalted. The following trout was in a way overcooked that you could see the coagulated proteins: white dots. Two small potatoes with skin were hardly edible, the skin being so thick and hard that it was not possible to cut them. The mousse was ok. The next morning started a lot better: the breakfast buffet convinced us, variety and quality were very good, the service comme il faut.…
One night only, but wish it'd been more, at wonderful, old and charming Walaker Hotel in the tiny village Solvorn. Fantastic scenery by the fjord. Great service from all, especially the Head Chef who absolutely did more than expected to make adjustments re wife's extensive diet needs. Both dinner and breakfast was better than great. We had a room in the newer, separate wing, which was great and spacious and with a garden terrace in front. Would also like to stay in the old main building some other time. The hotel has a lot of fine art inside, outside and in the gallery. Take the tiny ferry across the fjord to Urnes stave church (UNESCO world heritage) by car or by foot (20 mins uphill walk). Our future plans definitively include visiting Walaker again.
We didn’t stay at the hotel, but we dined in their restaurant and it was amazing. Everything tasted great and the staff was really friendly and funny. The owner of the hotel also did a small tour and talked about the history of the hotel. It is truly a great place for dinner. 10/10 would definitely recommend:)
We have visited exclusive hotels all around the world. Walaker with its unique charm has secured its position among the very very best. If we should choose the number one place to stay for two-three days in Norway and Scandinavia, this would be our choice
