Here are answers to the most common questions we get. For other wonderings, please write an email to booking@knystaforsen.se or give us a call: +46 (0) 72-883 41 15 (NB: We do not take bookings by phone).


Where can we stay?

Villa Knystaforsen

We offer accommodation for our guests in Villa Knystaforsen right across the river from us. The rooms are often fully booked on the restaurant’s opening nights, so if you don’t see any availability in the booking system, that is probably the reason. The rooms have private bathrooms.

B & B

When you book a dinner with B&B stay you will usually be staying at Lahult in one of their two double rooms with private bathroom – or in a house with room for up to 7 people. The B&B is located in beautiful surroundings a 10-15 minute walk from us, or 5 minutes by car. The hosts will give you a ride back and / or forth.

In our neighbour village Torup 4 km from us you can stay at Torups Gästgivaregård. We offer a ride back an forth for 200 SEK each way per car (up to 4 people). Write us an email to arrange this: booking@knystaforsen.se

Holiday appartment

Within 5 minute’s walking distance from us you can hire a holiday apartment for up to 9 people from Bofast, including a discount to visit Rydö Golfklubb.

Mobile home / husbil parking

There is a campsite for mobile homes just around the corner from us, at Rydö Golfklub


Nature is all around us, with plenty of space to pitch a tent. Here in Sweden you are free to do so anywhere in nature, as long as you do not disturb or destroy anyone or anything. Read more here. We do not offer camping on our property.

What if Villa Knystaforsen and the B&B is full?

If you don’t find any dinner & stay options in the booking system on the day you would like to visit us, then you can still book a table, and accommodation elsewhere (see some options here below). Even if you stay somewhere else (or in your own autohome or tent) you can still order breakfast here. If you do not wish to spend the night somewhere else, then you can sign up for the waiting list on the days you would like to visit us, or for our last minute waiting list if you’re open for options.

Can we charge an electric car?

You can charge your car by our neighbours CBM retail (between Knystaforsen and Knystaria). Use the app Spirii go. The charging stations are not available Monday-Friday 7-16 . 

When can I book for later dates?

We’re currently open for bookings until August 2023. If you’d like to book on a future date that is not yet available in the booking system, please sign up for our newsletter where we inform about future booking options. We plan to start taking bookings for the autumn of 2023 in the3 beginning of July.

What is your dress code?

We wear what makes us feel comfortable, and we expect nothing else from you. Please be advised that Knystaforsen is situated in the middle of nature, why we recommend casual footwear. We cook over an open fire, and from time to time we invite our guests to join us outdoors. This can leave a smoky remark on your clothing, just the way we like it. With that in mind, you do not need any special clothes.

What are the seating times?

When booking or checking into Villa Knystaforsen you will be appointed a time between 17.30-17.50. We only have one seating, which lasts approximately 4 hours.

Can I buy a gift certificate?

Yes – you can buy a gift certificate that you can print out yourself right here.

Will you do Cooking on Fire Workshops again?

Yes – see our current workshops here.

Do you cater to special diets?

We are not able to accommodate vegan or milk free menus.

We can always make pescetarian and vegetarian alternatives and can cater to many common food allergies if we get a notice well in advance. Pregnancy is no problem.

For guests who cannot drink wines based on apples we cannot offer a full wine package, but a combination of wine and non-alcoholic beverages.

Can I bring a child?

Children 11 years of age or older are welcome, however we do not offer special children’s menus or -prices. No babies, unfortunately, but we can help you find a local babysitter. Children of all ages are welcome if you book our Chef’s table (available to book for min. 7 people).

Can I bring a dog?

No dogs or other pets, sorry, at Knystaforsen or in Villa Knystaforsen. Dogs are welcome if you book our Chef’s table (available to book for min. 7 people).

How to get here by public transport?

Can we walk/cycle?

We are close to the walking route Hallandsleden and the cycling route Hylteslingan.

What goes for confirmation and cancellation?

When booking you will be asked to pay a booking deposit of 1000 SEK per person. Once the payment is received the booking is confirmed. If payment is not received within 24 hours after booking, the booking will be automatically cancelled. The booking deposit will be deducted from the bill on the day. The deposit will not be returned if you cancel your reservation, regardless of the cause. It may be changed to another date up until 14 days before (see below). You are of course always welcome to pass on your booking to someone else. If so, please write us an email to booking@knystaforsen.se

Can I change my reservation to another date?

You may change the reservation to another date up until 14 days before and keep the deposit. Less than 14 days before, a new deposit must be paid in order to change the booking to another date, regardless of the cause. Of course you are always welcome to pass on the reservation to a friend if for some reason you cannot make it. In that case, please write an e-mail to booking@knystaforsen.se

Why won’t I get my deposit back if I cancel or want to change the booking less than 14 days before?

Booking a table with us is similar to buying a ticket to a concert, theater, or a holiday. Every time a table is booked in our restaurant, it locks the possibility that another guest can book. Therefore, every cancellation means a loss for our restaurant, since we only have 7 tables, even a single cancellation can mean that we lose up to 20% of our turnover that night, as we cannot necessarily pass the table on to somebody else with a short notice. This also applies when rebooking.

Can you recommend walking routes or other activities around you?

There are lots of things to do in our beautiful surroundings. Please check Hylte Kommuns tourist site for info and advice.
