I found this place on TripAdvisor after the hotel tried to send us to some expensive fish chain restaurant near the water, and I'm glad I did. We each chose three courses from the 3x3 grid and tasted the entire menu. Mom and I started with a glass of cava, each 18 NOK and very smooth for the price. I agree with a previous reviewer that the descriptions don't do justice to the food, although or server described everything in detail as it was stored. I had the salmon, horseradish cream, radish, apple and soy vinaigrette starter and it was amazing. I was compelled to finish it! Dad's "baby squid" was really octopus, with little chorizo bits and a lovely goat cheese foam. I wasn't crazy about the mussels, with cucumber and also foam, but others enjoyed them.
We had one mackerel for main course, pan fried and topped with fennel and beet and greens. I dont like mackerel but the preparation was lovely. The pork loin with potatoes was tender, and my beef with marrow and celery root was more tender than my brother's portion, so I enjoyed it. The desserts were stars like the appetizers. The brother had the "chocolate mousse," which was much lovelier when described as it was served, with Jack Daniels and coffee flavor and fresh strawberries, topped with a quenelle of yogurt mousse. My rhubarb was a study in rhubarb, with poached pieces, rhubarb gel and Italian meringue topping it off. He and I all but licked our plates. The cheese plate was enormous portions of three cheeses with nice accompaniments but nothing extraordinary.
Overall pricing is fair and appetizers and desserts are really special, as is the pleasant, quiet atmosphere and very friendly service. Totally worth seeking out and I'd definitely go back!
