Ikon

“The evening meal was superb, cooked by the owner/chef. He went out of his way to accommodate some dietary requirements. He sources local produce where possible and matched the great food with recommended wines by the glass. Of particular note were the beef medallions sourced locally from grass fed Scottish longhair cattle. Whilst it was not cheap, it was moderate by Norwegian standards and was good value for money.”
