This summer, when dining at one of the best restaurants in Northern Norway, you can enjoy your meal at an outdoor table.

Summers in Helgeland, when the evening sky glows late into the night, are ideal for outdoor dining. Every Thursday, Friday and Saturday starting 8 July you can enjoy refreshments on the terrace, and from 14 July you can enjoy world-class dining on the restaurant’s new terrace.

And where is this culinary attraction that is drawing a steady stream of foodies? By the friendly fjordside village of Utskarpen, Marius Martinsen and Elise Bratteng Rønning have rebuilt an old farm into a charming restaurant. And from an outdoor table you can fully appreciate the beautiful surroundings.

Native Helgelanders, as well as travellers from all over the world, come to the restaurant eager to experience the eight- or 16-course tasting menu. Previously, the wait could be much longer for a table, but with the terrace now open for the warm summer weather, the seating capacity is greatly increased. For more casual dining, you can also choose from the summer menu of food from the grill, including hamburgers with beef from Sletten farm, and locally-produced sausages with lots of options for condiments. And in the evening sun, whatever is in your glass is sure to glow as you raise it in a toast. Should the weather change, you can sit nice and dry in the pavilion, listening to raindrops drum against its roof.

The opening hours are listed below.

Wonderful refreshments and great food are not the only things on offer. You can also rent a bike and explore the lovely farmland around Utskarpen. Or just take a stroll along the beach, which is right next to the restaurant.
