“Surprisingly wonderful local restaurant”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

I popped in this beautiful restaurant on my way to Oslo. I did not expect such a wonderful place in the small town. Of course, I did not any information either. I entered because I was attracted to its Nordic simple design. The atmosphere was different from outside. Moreover, only one staff served many guests there! I wondered I could have a lunch! But surprisingly, service and food were all satisfactory. Nordic salad that I ordered was full of fresh vegetable and salad. Soup was perfect. I did not see other staff until I left there. But I enjoyed wonderful food and took a rest on the long driving journey.

“What an experience!”
Reviewed 22 February 2014

You can tell that this restaurant cares about their guests. Excellent service and what great food!
We would like to highly recommend EKTE.
Their chef knows what he/she is doing and that goes for the rest of the staff as well.
