Can I bring my own wine?

No, according to Swedish law we are not allowed to let guests bring their own wine or other alcoholic beverages. This also applies when you book a room in Villa Knystaforsen.

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 18.30-18.50. 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?

We currently do not have any Cooking on fire workshops planned, sorry. You can see more about Cooking on fire and sign up for the newsletter here.

Do you cater to special diets?

We are not able to accommodate vegan, gluten free 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.


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 adults).

Can I bring a dog?

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

How to get here by public transport?

You can travel to Rydöbruk by bus from Torup, Halmstad or Hyltebruk. Trains run to Torup nearby from Halmstad, Falkenberg and Jönköping with direct connections to Malmö, Copenhagen and Gothenburg.

How to order a taxi?

To / from Halmstad there are several options for booking a taxi, e.g. Tre Hjärtan. The nearest local taxi service is Sennans Taxi.

Which are the nearest airports?

Can we walk/cycle?

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

What are the terms 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.
