Sinclair has run accommodation and dining for travelers for 45 years. The inn has got new owners in May 2017 and is currently open only with bed and breakfast. Dining in the cafeteria opens soon.
We stopped off here for quick snack while on tour of Norway. Had a plate of chips(quick service and greatly enjoyed) and drinks and were interested at all the history: a Scots/ Norwegian balttle took place here in 1612 and there are books available and a big oil painting.

At the fruit farm at Steinsto you can buy freshly picked fruit and berries during the season. It is also possible to buy freshly baked homemade apple cake, bread, “lefser”, preserves and apple juice. A cafeteria is also available where you can enjoy delicious homemade food whilst taking in the beautiful view of the fjord and Mountains. Farm visits for groups – booking in advance.
We stopped here on our last day of a wonderful organised coach trip touring Norway. We walked to the delightful wooden cafe building at the top of a hill over looking the beautiful Hardangerfjord on a lovely sunny day. The tables were already laid out with our apple cake and cream as we had pre booked as there were 35 of us! It was delicious! Our lovely Norwegian coach driver, Christian, had also ordered and paid for us to sample a "Lefse", a traditional Norwegian flatbread, spread with a fruit conserve and folded over, really scrummy too! We had tea or coffee to wash it down and all for only K600 each! After we had consumed these the joint owner, Heidi, spoke to us about how the business had been in the family for several hundred years and how she has gone from making 100 cakes a year to now 4,000, There is a little shop by the road side that sells all their home produced goods from their wonderful apple orchards. Don't pass it by!

We visited in March with a group and were served apple cake and coffee. Lovely Hardanger music reverberated in the small rooms from the musician who played the accordian for us. We strolled around afterwards and had a look around the farm. The weather wasn't great that day, but the warmth in the rooms from the fireplace and our host couldn't have been more welcoming.

Unless you plan to eat at the local hotel, there is no other choice for restaurants in Norheimsund. Oh, there is a "Kabab/ Pizza" restaurant on the main street that is generally empty, and a small Chinese restaurant that looks closed. You can generally judge a restaurant by the amount of people walking through its doors, but in this case the crowd has little alternative. Eating at La Fiesta is an act of desperation. The food isn't bad - just mediocre. The pizzas are the main draw, and the menu offers almost two pages of various combination toppings, all of which begin looking very much the same, a slight variation in each. I ordered a marinated chicken salad, with miniscule amounts of chicken. Prices in Norway are expensive, but after paying $20. in US money for a chicken salad, you don't expect to leave hungry.
The restaurant is small, with a handful of tables. Two large tables were being reserved for groups of locals, and we got the last available table. Unfortunately the turnover is quite long. We waited almost an hour just to get our meals. How long does it take to make one pizza and chicken salad? Another couple, obviously tourists, entered soon afterwards and were basically ignored by the young waitress. Rudeness, not language, was a barrier, as she failed to explain that the empty tables were reserved. She didn't offer an apology, give them an estimate when the next table would be available, or even suggest take-out. She just stood there waiting for the couple to leave.
At the end of our meal we waited and waited for our bill. When I finally said something, she told us to pay it at the counter. Perhaps the locals are aware of their routine, but being that we sat down to menus, she took our order and delivered our meals, you would expect some final word along with the check. It was quite an unfriendly atmosphere, resentful of tourists, which seemed to cater to the locals.

We were in Norway visiting friends, and our hostess raved about this little place that her friend had just opened. I ordered the delicious marzipan cake - it was hard to choose from all the tempting delicacies (I added a photo of it) with coffee, and husband & kids all had softis ice cream with cocoa powder. Yum! We took it outside to the lovely scenic square which has tables set up in beautiful downtown Norheimsund, Norway. It was a gorgeous day. It had just opened up & the place was was full but service was very efficient! (This was fall of 2013) Although the owner was very busy, when things slowed down she came out & freshened our coffee and chatted a bit with our group. A lovely way to start our morning, have lunch or end your day. Wish I was there right now! As an aside, there is lots of lovely shops just a few steps away so plan to spend some time in this beautiful & scenic town. Highly recommend!

Norheimsund was not a place we intended to stop, but travelling with a baby will do that. We came to the cafe and the staff were friendly with lot's of Seating available. We sat outside and had a great view of the bridge and surrounding water ways. The coffee we had was nice, but was way to hot to drink. The biscuits we bought were nice. Made for a nice spot to sit and relax.

We had few expectations of getting a good meal in Norheimsund based on the limited restaurant options listed on TripAdvisor. We were tired, with jetlag and a long drive from Oslo, so we would have been satisfied with pretty much anything. To our pleasant surprise, Thon Hotel Sandven had a very good restaurant, that surprisingly, was not listed on this website.
We had three mains - risotto with scallops & prawn, baked halibut with spinach & beetroot puree and spare ribs with potato & corn. The halibut (which was recommended by our server) was excellent - the flavourful fish well complemented by the beetroot puree. The risotto was also very good. The ribs were adequate but not special.
For dessert we had creme brulee and local strawberries & cream. We would recommend the strawberries. We would also highly recommend the apple juice from a local farm that's on the menu.
Overall, a satisfying meal that did not break the bank. Probably the best eating place in Norheimsund.

The farm has been in the family for 8 generations and grows a wonderful array of fruit and berries. We were welcomed by the brother and sister who own and run the farm and cafe/store. While tasting apple cider, they told us of the history...MoreThan you so much for your visit Valerie! It was so Nice to read Your review. Thank you so much for Your Nice Words! Welcome back sometime!

Perfect place for lunch. Stopped here after hiking around Fitjadalsvatnet. Lovely setting, great view and good cuisine. What else can one ask for. Jubel.

Fresh and authentic Thaifood. Popular and reasonable priced. If you have something in mind that we don't have on the menu, we'll most likely make it if we have time.
