Food & drinks

We put our soul into good food; traditional, classic Norwegian, local, homemade, generous and tasty. Our a la carte service offers the flexibility we want you to find in the Norwegian mountains. Welcome!

Food with identity

Our restaurant in Fjellstua can seat around 95 guests, while Peisestuen has 30 seats and a lounge with a fireplace. The Fjellstua is used extensively throughout the year by locals, people on the move, cabin dwellers in the area and Norwegian and foreign tourists. We appreciate that!

The Furuset family, with Marit at the helm of the kitchen, has been running the business for more than 45 years and has built up an excellent kitchen offering traditional dishes and their own specialties, where the main focus has always been pure, homemade food. Chef Tor-Ivar, 2. Generation Furuset at Lemonsjø is passionate about the origin and production of its ingredients. He has an exceptional ability to find the best ingredients for everyday meals or more extravagant dishes and menus.

Local and Norwegian ingredients are in focus. The pepper steak and steak come from the best Norwegian tenderloin - classics at Lemonsjøen. We have our own fisherman who provides fresh mountain trout from Vågå in the summer. Homemade rømmegrøt (sour cream porridge) also belongs to the season, along with local cured sausages and Norwegian cured ham. We use reindeer meat from Jotunheimen in various forms all year round. Moose and deer are collected from local hunting teams and processed into patties, steaks and other delicacies in our kitchen. Other classics are also worth trying, such as the medister cookies from Brandbu!

We have our own children's menu, small dishes from the adult menu. We're impressed by the number of children who gorge themselves on creamy porridge on hot summer days. Classic Viennese sausages and good french fries (here we use rapeseed oil) are also included.

Every Sunday, villagers come to have dinner with us. We think that's really nice! At Lemonsjø Fjellstue, you can stop by and have a proper dinner that you know is homemade. We also have cakes, waffles, sandwiches, snacks and real homemade hot chocolate on the menu. Throughout the season, you'll find seasonal appetizers, main courses and sweet endings in our a la carte menu.

Drinks to go with the food are also part of the equation, we have all the rights and good knowledge of the right combination. In stock are wines that carry stories for us; Jotunheimen Furu, an Arne Brimi creation where pine from the area has been allowed to characterize the French red wine, available only at apprenticeship companies belonging to BrimiKjøkken Opplæringskontor. Barbaresco, Burgundy types have joined us from vacation trips down in Europe and Chateau Musar as well as Le Cedre de Beyrouth are part of us.

Our fireplace lounge can be used for everything from small celebrations with loved ones, parties, meetings and festive groups. A cozy setting for a good meal and an enjoyable time for you and yours. A modern kitchen allows us to deliver in multiple arenas at the same time.

For more than 45 years, the philosophy "Lemonsjø Fjellstue & Hyttegrend - the place for good food" has been a cornerstone of our operations that we build on every day.
