Had an exellent evening at Jacob og Gabriel. We ordered 5 dishes with wines, which was a success. We were introduced to several wonderful dishes, with suitable wines. The prices this march are great. My favourite place to dine in Skien!

We had the plessure of booking Jacob & Gabriel - Folkegourmet for a party of 40 people. We got served a three course meal, which was a plessure from start to finish. I would recommend this resturant to anyone that are planing a big dinner in the area.

Excellent food, well composed menu. The wines are expensive, what is quite normal in Norway. The service very friendly and not disturbing.
