Fodor's Expert Review Himmel og Havn

$$$ Leknes Norwegian

As the name translates, "Heaven and Harbor" play lead roles in the spirit of this restaurant in the village of Ballstad. Sitting on a dock moored with fishing boats, the harbor is right outside, and as picturesque as they come. Heaven attempts to shine through the bright, impressionistic artwork on the walls, the charmingly worn wood tables and floors, and a menu inspired by grandma's recipes. As good as the carrot cake and apple pie are, the highlight is the house bacalao, a spicy stew made with salted cod. In summer, the dining area expands onto the dock itself.
