“Inspired and tasteful short-travelled food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2013

We stayed at Nordre Ekre just one night, but I will remember our dinner at Nordre Ekre for a long time. Most of the ingredients were local, and assembled in an inspired and thoughtful way. The pepper-marinated trout starter and the spiced berries with whipped sour cream for dessert will stay with me a long time.

The wine list is short, but the wines by the glass that are suggested for the menu was very well paired with the food.

"Local" cuisine in this part of Norway has a tendency to drown in butter and cream. Not so here. The menu is also excellent value for money - it would easily cost 20% more in Oslo. There really is no reason to pass this little gem by.

I came here with relatives who have a Norwegian heritage. We loved the food and the beautifully furnished restaurant. A real Norwegian delight.

“Beautiful Farmhouse hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2012

Not so easy to find this farm, but it lay up on the side of the valley in the sun. The welcome from Marit Ekre was friendly and she showed us the rooms. There are several logg buildings where they have done a fantastic job and the bedrooms, not to mention the bathrooms are top quality. They have a lounge, TV, Internet in one building and the restaurant in the other. There is a fixed menu which changes dailly based on local food available. We had marinated sashimi (raw salmon), venison and local Norwegian cheeses. This could almost have been a Michelin restaurant !

“Excellent food - especially the Norwegian cheese”

We had a deliciuos dinner of tenderloin and French potatoes. And, the peak of the meal was the exquisite selection of Norwegian cheeses, one tasting better than the other.
