Welcome to Knystaforsen!

Our restaurant – in an old sawmill, by a rippling river, surrounded by pristine forests – is also our extended 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 lush western province of Halland. 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 primarily Nordic beverages, made with an array of fruits, berries, flowers, and, yes, sometimes even 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.

We promise to make this a memorable experience in tune with nature.
