Definitely visit this place. I had the three course meal with smoked whale as appetizer, and best pork knuckle I have had ever as main course. My wife had reindeer sausage which was also very tasty. Then the beer selection is really good, mainly Norwegian.

Pa Den Glade Gris tilberedes maten etter "slow-cooking-metoden". Her kan du nyte god mat og godt drikke til en fornuftig pris. "Slow-cooking" er en matlagingsmetode som gjor maten smakfull og utrolig mor. Grillet svineknoke og langstekt nakke av gris, er vare signatur-retter, men prov ogsa dagens fisk eller spis sa mye du vil av norske supper (for kl. 17.00) Fra var suppe buffet . Vil du ha et spesielt ol, prov VPA fra Voss Bryggeri, som vant Innvovasjonsprisen for ol 2013. Vi har over 50 typer ol.
