A social dining experience

The best experiences are the ones we share. At the tasting table at Kest you will be presented with the opportunity to share your dinner experience with others who are inspired by food, creating a great space for conversations, discussions and friendships.

Your culinary journey through the West Norwegian fjords, farms and mountains will be accompanied by a chef and a sommelier who will also take a host role. At the tasting table there's a thought behind every detail, there's a story to every ingredient and none of those ideas and stories will be left untold. Our collaborative team works hard to create links between humans, nature and culture, and strives to communicate it through the tasting menu concept.
