Not the band.. but this hidden gem I Skien. Mouth watering menu, fantastic surroundings with outdoor seating. Sun’s shining, live music. Service great. Catch of the day (fish) was a home run. Excellent taste and presentation. Try the local brewed beer.

Very nice and polite staff, excellent food. Crowded but they do their very best to seat people that didn’t book in advance.

Unfortunately we were not very lucky this day at the restaurant. First of all we got the feeling that the staff did not have time to serve us. Secondly the food was over-cooked, small and expensive. Still, the restaurant has a beautiful location.

The location of the restaurant is great, right next to the waterline and it is especially beautiful during summer nights. Food is great and very tasteful, might be a bit expensive for some.

4 star for food. Entrecote was well prepared, potatoes with aioli was delicious, and we couldn’t get enough of the soup. 1 star for service. Waited over 10 minutes to be seated because waiters were walking by, looking at us, and ignoring us until another...family came in. They were seated, then we were seated. Had to flag down a waiter to get a menu. Once we ordered, the waitress came back 10 mins later to confirm because she had forgotten one of the orders. When the food arrived, the other order was wrong (ordered entrecôte, got burger that was allergic to after specifying allergy). Didn’t ever get one of our orders. Table didn’t have napkins and they were only filled as we were leaving as well.More

Du bør vel ringe dem for å sjekke, men stedet burde være helt ok for hunder fordi det er god plass både utenfor og inne. Inne er det to avdelinger for å spise; et ‘glasshus’ / hagestue og et normalt hus. Utenfor en park mot... More
