"Store koldt bord" buffet dinner. Wide selection of seafood, along with traditional meats (lamb, pork, and beef; no reindeer). Most of the dishes have great flavor. Visit as many times as you like.  Wine costs extra. Skip the salad bar, and leave room for dessert....More

do they do gluten free options?

Response from MaestraM | Reviewed this property |
I doubt it. It's a huge bufffet with just about any type of food you could imagine, though. There should be plenty of gluten-free foods to choose from.

Is there a dress code in the restaurant ?

Response from jocko | Reviewed this property |
No dress code - this is located in a rather rural ,area where travelers come and go so they are not going to say "no thank you" just because of the clothes you have - within reason.
