I liked my club sandwich and my daughter liked her fish and chips dish. Surprisingly this restaurant is not expensive. I definitely recommend one to eat here while visiting #balestrand.

An enormous smorgasbord can be wonderful or overwhelming. If in Balestrand this is a one-time must, come hungry, but not worth doing a second time - way too much food and there are other options

The hot food is cooked to perfection and a very wide range is on offer from the buffet in its different sections. Add to that view if seate3d near a window and what more could you want?

We stopped here for a lunch, had not made a booking upfront and we could order a quick sandwich lunch by the bar/reception. Good vale and quality of the sandwiches. Very kind and efficient staff.

We ate early before the crowds arrived. This is a huge operation; they probably seat hundreds every day. Everything was excellent: service and food. It is expensive but amazing. By far the best dining experience in Balestrand.

We had buffet meals for a week and were impressed with the variety of choices offered.The choice of seafood was the best I have ever seen and eaten. The bread at this hotel was flavoursome and very fresh. Desserts were great too with fresh strawberries...More

I doubt it. It's a huge bufffet with just about any type of food you could imagine, though. There should be plenty of gluten-free foods to choose from.

No dress code - this is located in a rather rural ,area where travelers come and go so they are not going to say "no thank you" just because of the clothes you have - within reason.
