At Fossheim the owners have been focusing on food and wine for many years and built a very good restaurant that offers local specialities and exciting dishes. If you are a fan of trying new tastes and pure ingridients in a delicate composure - this is a place you should check out! They have many good wines to choose amongst as well. Be aware it's pricy though.
A lot of magazines have heard about this restaurant hidden in the mountains and have written reviews about this place - they brag a lot about the place.
Favorite Dish: It changes regularily what they have on the menu - but if you can afford it - why not try their seven course meal?!? :)
Elvesæter is the lifes work of the Elvesæter family and is both a hotelfacility and restaurant. The restaurant is run by a very professional and serviceminded staff and most customers appear to be repeatvisitors from continental Europe. The food is in large based on first class local ingridients like deer, elk, salmon, trout, fresh vegetables and other yummy stuff. They have many excellent wines from Italy, France, Spain and Germany amongst others. The portions are also rather generous - since many guests are returning from mountainhiking trips that has made them really hungry :)
This place is a gem in displaying many items of norwegian traditional and historic showpieces of artscraft, handycraft and paintings. Many buses arrive just to view and admire those items that are on show here. The rooms and rates are reasonable - especially considering the high quality of the facilities. The surrounding nature is absolutely fantastic.
Favorite Dish: They have a wonderful deerdish at this hotel - but ask the staff to get to know what they recommend at any given time. That way you can enjoy whatever ingridients that are in season.
