Popular eateries and restaurants in Førde
Førde is a popular fishing destination and has several restaurants with local fish dishes on the menu. If you want a taste of Førde and Sunnfjord, you can, for example, add a restaurant visit to Pikant Wine and Dine. The food here is mainly based on ingredients from the municipality – such as vegetables and berries from the farms and fish from the fjord. On Saturdays, the restaurant tables are set for "Etasjenons" - Førde’s answer to Afternoon Tea. Another good alternative is the restaurant Ete Fysst. As the name of the restaurant suggests, it’s a good idea to eat before embarking on new activities. At Ete Fysst, you get traditional dishes prepared in the most delicious ways. The restaurant is located at the Thon Partner Hotel Førde, within walking distance of the town centre.
