View as appetizer and dessert

The view may not be what you think about most while enjoying a delicious meal. The atmosphere around the meal is still quite a different story when you can gaze out on the cultural landscape, a calm fjord or an urban environment from above.

The Strandbaren beach bar at Stokkøya Sjøsenter has established itself as one of the top restaurants in Trøndelag. The restaurant is situated next to what is perhaps the finest beach in all of central Norway, Hosnasand. Even if you do not have a view from the height here, it’s still an amazing experience to sit behind the bar`s big glass walls, or even outside on the terrace, when the sun sets.

The beach bar serves local cuisine including wonderful mussels and occasionally throws an acoustic concert on weekends.
