Food & Drink
Sørfjorden, our arm of the Hardangerfjord, has several high-quality restaurants which pride themselves on using the finest, local ingredients. In addition to the places mentioned below, there's a convenient tavern for our guests at Bleie, serving burgers and other simple meals.
Part of the exclusive group "De Historiske", Utne Hotel has been serving and accomodating guests for almost 300 years. It is a 25 minute-drive away along the fjord. They serve delicious 3-star food in their historical restaurant. Booking in advance is recommended.
This grand hotel is something of an institution in Western Norway, and like Utne Hotel a member of "De Historiske". It's on the opposite side of the fjord from Vikebygd (a 1hr-drive or 15 minutes by boat). Their a la carte-restaurant, "Zanoni", comes higly recommended, and with great views. Booking in advance is recommended.
The coolest pub in Hardanger is just across the fjord. They have concerts, pubquiz and serve their own brew of both beer and apple cider.
