“Wednesday Norwegian buffet - great meal”
Reviewed 24 February 2014

The Norwegian buffet, served on a Wednesday night is great. A large choice of fish and meat, served as traditional Norwegian receipes.

The 'normal' buffet on other nights is fine, but the Wednesday night is extra special.

“A bad experience”
Reviewed 8 July 2013

We were travelling from Trondheim and planned to stop at Venabu Fjellhotell for a sunday dinner on the way to Oslo. It was maybe a bit too far from Trondheim, but we thought we would just appreciate the meal more. Unfortunately they welcomed us in and directed us to the dining room after informing us first that the sunday dinner was not a la carte but buffet, and the price was 340 NOK pr person + beverages. The three of us, hungry and looking forward to a hearty meal, accepted. We were sorely disappointed. The warm food consisted of one fish dish and one chicken dish, The fish was getting cold and the chicken ran out. None could have second helpings, and one didn't even get first helping of a warm dish. This left us with cold cuts, potatoes and vegetables. I found the billing an added insult as the price was billed in full despite a feeble apolgy from the manager. I can sincerely say that I shall for the future avoid this establishment at all costs and recommend all others to equally avoid it.

“Real local food!”
Reviewed 4 January 2013

Special traditional local food. Not only tastes delicious but also looks beautiful. And the staff explains what is served. So, also some Norwegion foodhistory-lessons. Definitely a try!!!
