When you want a light meal, dine before 5 pm. Menus before and after this are full of local produce prepared in tasteful and visually delightful dishes! To be sure you get a table, book ahead. Especially if you are numerous :)

A nice place to eat and drink with the possibility to have your refreshments both outside and indoor. Nice food and a rather good variety on beer and drinks. Good and quick service. A place to recommend if you go to Hønefoss

We had a delightful dinner in this historic jail building. We all chose the boar which was extremely flavorful and served on a bed of pumpkin purée with white asparagus. Nice ambience and worth a visit.

Me and my wife have been to this restaurant several times and the last was to celebrate one success for our company Mondosol. The food is very good in this restaurant, the service is fast maybe is a bit overpriced, but is normal in Norway.
