Housed in an inimitably historic location in the Fredriksten fortress in Halden, the Vertshuset Curtisen is a delightfully convivial restaurant. With the original ground floor built in 1756, the other stories were rebuilt in an Empirical style after the 1826 fire. Having long been an iconic setting, it was just outside of the fortress walls that Carl XIII met his fate.
Regional, seasonal produce from Østfold’s rich landscape determine the menu at Vertshuset Curtisan, which not only has locally-produced and sustainably-sourced ingredients at its heart, but a serious and well-devised wine list that teams well with the seasonal dishes – and, of course, knowledgeable staff who attentively suggest suitable wines to suit both your meal and budget.
As well as several three to eight-course menus at Vertshuset restaurant, every evening sees the chef devise a superb special menu, the ‘Kveldens meny.’
Taking their role as ‘host’ very seriously, Vertshuset Curtisen in Halden strives to provide guests with a unique and enjoyable experience. Ample parking is available at the restaurant in Halden, and the 15-minute walk from the train station takes guests through the beautiful fortress itself.
