Description

Ramberg Gjestegård AS

On the outer side of the Lofoten archipelago, with a gorgeous view of the great ocean and a kilometer-long sandy beach, the restaurant of Ramberg Gjestegård is located.

This is where we find inspiration and make use of the resources this wild and beautiful nature so graciously offers us. From the ocean we can offer you fresh fish brought ashore by the local fishing fleet, or we prepare the raw materials based on methods that have been passed on from generation to generation through hundreds of years: like drying, bokning (half-drying), salting, curing and smoking. From the land we get the tastiest herbs which develop a rare taste and aroma during the long, light summer nights. When it comes to the meat production in Lofoten, we especially appreciate the Lofot lamb, which grazes on salty grass found between rocks along the shore and juicy herbs far up into the mountains. We like to say it comes freshly marinated…

For several hundred years the fish caught in Lofoten have been exported to other countries. Many of our traditional meals show signs of being influenced by these international relations, but they are still based on our own exceptional raw materials. In a world that keeps getting smaller this influence keeps growing, but we see it as our task to preserve the traditions while at the same time developing new courses based on our resources. This can best be achieved through our membership in the Arctic Menu, a network of North Norwegian restaurants whose goal is to utilise local raw materials and develop these further.

Here at the outer side of Lofoten the conditions are especially good for air drying both meat and fish during the cold season. Because of this we have consulted the local pensioners and created a three-course “Flakstad menu” based on local drying methods. The menu consists of gammelsteik (salted and air-dried leg of lamb), boknafisk (half-dried cod), and for dessert we had to include rhubarb – in this case as a compote – this plant which so eagerly grows regardless of the weather conditions.

In addition to being a place where you can enjoy good food, our restaurant is also a showcase for very talented local artists. The phrase local experiences – for everybody from far and near mostly covers what we stand for.

As a Miljøfyrtårn certified business we also want as many of our raw materials as possible to be locally rooted and utilised in a sustainable way. As such we as a business have no qualms about announcing that we have actively joined the fight against oil production in Lofoten.

We are proud to invite you: Dear guest, welcome to a culinary meeting with Ramberg, Lofoten and our amazing resources – in a traditional as well as in a modern way.

WELCOME!
