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

The hot food is cooked to perfection and a very wide range is on offer from the buffet in its different sections. Add to that view if seate3d near a window and what more could you want?

We had dinner at beautiful Kviknes during our two nights at Balestrand. I have never heard of this historic hotel and the dinner was an absolute highlight. The food was perfectly presented and the choice was enormous; cooked meat dishes, seafood, hot and cold salads,...More

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.

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.
