In the center of Hønefoss, but a bit hidden away anyhow. We visited for Saturday lunsj. It was crowded and we had to wait 20 minutes to get a table. The service was fast, friendly with lots of smiles, and we really loved it. The restaurant is in the old Prison building, but the food they serve is far form... More

The food is good, the setting is lovely (the old jail is a wooden house from 19th Century, white painted and nowadays in a park, all owned by a local trust who wanted to keep it as it were and not have it transformed to shopping centre. Lots of local events and exhibitions, and a very nice garden to eat... More

Stopped at Brasserie Fengselet to get som lunch in the sun. It's a nice place to sit, and the food is good, but to me everything was just average... Service, food and prices, all average... Comparing it to other places in Hønefoss, its absolutely one of the best places, but if you compare it to gastro-pubs in bigger cities, this... More

A nice place to eat and drink with the possibility to have your refreshments both outside and indoor. Nice food and a rather good variety on beer and drinks. Good and quick service. A place to recommend if you go to Hønefoss

We had a delightful dinner in this historic jail building. We all chose the boar which was extremely flavorful and served on a bed of pumpkin purée with white asparagus. Nice ambience and worth a visit.

Had a mixed seafood starter that was not entirely catch of the day. This was part of the summer menu though. The lunch menu is ok better, with good bread and salads, but the menu has been the same for a long time now. Maybe replace the scampi salad soon? It is good, but old news.

Me and my wife have been to this restaurant several times and the last was to celebrate one success for our company Mondosol. The food is very good in this restaurant, the service is fast maybe is a bit overpriced, but is normal in Norway.

Although they have a small menu, you can find your choice easy thanks to the variety of the dishes. Absolutely an excellent service with an international staff, adapting themselves to your requests.

The restaurant which serves French/Norwegian crossover inspired food is located in the old courthouse which also contained a local prison. Compared with Salt & Pepper close by they have a modest but exquisite selection of dishes. The quality of the food is normally very, very good, close to excellent. We've been here on several occasions and have never been disappointed.... More
