At the guesthouse at Bekkjarvik, local ingredients have been used to serve amazing food since the 17th century. The ingredients are still of the same high quality, but the chefs are constantly working to find new better ways to prepare them, so the menu is constantly evolving.

The guesthouse is family-run, and the head chefs, the twin brothers Ørjan and Arnt, grew up loving working in the kitchen. Their skills have earned them both prestigious awards, and they now work to put together a four-course menu based on the best ingredients of the season. It is precisely for their focus on local quality ingredients the restaurant is ranked in the "White Guide - The best restaurants in the Nordics".
