Is there a dress code? We are coming to Norway mostly for outdoor activities so probably won't be packing any really dressy clothes.

I dont think there is a dress code.
We are a group of 13 adults traveling from the United States. We would like to eat dinner at your restaurant on either Sunday, June 18 or Monday, June 19. Do you have availability? Can you tell me an average cost of a meal with and without wine? Tak, Kathy
