It is not without pride you are welcomed to the table. Two senior chefs, Ørjan and Arnt Johannessen, have both received honors and glory for their achievements in the culinary profession - Ørjan with his gold in the Bocuse d´Or in Lyon, France 2015, and Arnt with the highest recognition in the National Association of Norwegian Chefs, "Chef of the Year" in 2014.

The Johannessen family's common goal is to be a place of warmth for its guests, a place for recreation and a place for the best dining experiences along Norway`s long coast. Together with the kitchen team, Arnt and Ørjan set a menu every day with one goal: That you, as a guest, should have a dining experience you will not forget. The two twin brothers have hung around the kitchen home at Gjestgiveriet in Bekkjarvik ever since they were children, following in their parents' footsteps. They are keen to preserve, but at the same time challenge the craftsmanship and traditional cooking.
Bekkjarvik Gjestgiveri is open all year round for dining and accommodation, except for the period from Dec. 23. to Jan 02.
