Top Choice Norwegian in Kongsberg

Restaurant Opsahlgården & Christians Kjeller

This upmarket restaurant in one of the city's oldest houses surprises with very spot-on dishes (say smoked lamb with juniper and carrot cream), and everything is made on the premises, including sorbets and ice cream…

Lastein Bryggje Kafè

This pretty riverside shed is one of the most scenic places in town, with a huge deck strewn with old-fashioned cane chairs and lap rugs. The menu offers the standards you've come to expect: burgers, fish and chips,…

International in Rjukan

European in Kongsberg


Carefully prepared French-style dishes are served in an old-fashioned friendly room. If you're not up for a full dinner, they'll happily feed you starters and snacks at the bar.

The menu here is a light and healthy escape from the rigours of the interior's burger-and-hot-dog diet. The owners will happily pack your sushi up for you to take away for a riverside picnic.
Norwegian in Seljord

Seljord Hotell Restaurant

The restaurant at the Seljord Hotell is Seljord's best, with local fish and game dishes.
Fast Food in Evje

Pernille Cafeteria

Right in the heart of Evje, this upstairs place is popular with locals although the menu is not Norway's most inspirational. Expect burgers, and eggs and bacon alongside a few Norwegian staples.
