Norway’s Cliff-Side Restaurant


The Troll Wall restaurant and visitors’ centre, designed by Norwegian studio Reiulf Ramstad Architects, offers a masterclass in architecture for remote locations. The reflective angular glass lookout provides impressive views of the tallest vertical rock face in Europe.

Located in Norway’s Romsdal Valley, the restaurant’s jutting façade is constructed from mirrored glass supported by a latticework of steel beams, offering visitors an unobstructed view of their dramatic surroundings.

When bathed in direct sunlight, the subtle use of surface materials also creates the illusion that the space is blending into the landscape. The geometrical roof is also specially designed to mimic the mountainous terrain.

The restaurant and centre are open seasonally from June to September to ensure visitors benefit from the best possible views.
