Welcome to Knystaforsen!

Our restaurant – in an old sawmill, by a rippling river, surrounded by pristine forests – was originally our home. So we treat our guests like family.

Sure, we have a proper kitchen, but we prefer cooking outdoors, over flames and embers. It’s sensuous and impractical, in the best sense of the word. It’s as much about camaraderie around a campfire as it’s about enjoying a meal seasoned with the visceral thrill of its unhurried preparation; fire, the primordial culinary art, provides sustenance for the soul too.

Over the course of our four hours together, we will regale you with a terroir-driven tasting menu that celebrates the wild nature around us. Some ingredients are plucked from the rivers and lakes, others are foraged in the woods, wild game and artisanal products are sourced from local purveyors.

We pair our dishes with Nordic and European beverages, made with an array of fruits, berries, and of course grapes. The non-alcoholic options contain equally hand-selected components and are brewed in-house, or caringly crafted by friends of Knystaforsen.

Our house is a casual place, there aren’t many rules here, except for one: making sure you feel at home.
