Despite of cost of fortune to take the sky-lift to the top of Loen. The restaurant just made up for all. Very good steak and deserts, good atmosphere. Worth taking the trip up there for us.

How can a plane burger taste so good? Was it the fresh air? Or the incredible view over the fjord? Or the 8k walk? Answer is no, even if it helped. Good ingredients and a fantastic aioli and lovely fries is the answer!

Breathtaking view - great food and service!! We arrived mid May, with not many tourist, so the competition for the very kind (Italian?) waitress was insignificant :) We had the Via Ferrata Burger, and the local Hoven Beer. Great combination!

This restaurant is unsurprisingly expensive, given it's amazing location, and the fact that everything in Norway is a little expensive. Thankfully, the food was delicious so it was absolutely worth it. The views are lovely, and it is completely wheelchair accessible.
