They did not have cheese on the desert menu and only one red and one white wine, but with no hesitation they served us an assortment of local Norwegian cheese and a very good bottle... More

She said she misunderstood but that was just an excuse. A little tip for the waitress: go through the order with... More

Very good restaurant. However, it is hard to overlook that the town has an even better gourmet restaurant.

It takes a lot to delivers from simple but fresh and locally available ingredients a fabulous dish. The chefs at Lothes manage. A great dining experience in a nice location.
