Re-Naa can now rejoice after having been awarded Restaurant of the Year 2019 by The Nordic Prize. This award is highly valued by the restaurant community and is awarded annually to one of five nominated restaurants from the five Nordic countries. Re-Naa is run by Sven Erik Renaa and his wife Torill in Stavanger, Norway, and is a member of Chaîne des Rôtisseurs.

It is a huge achievement, and it is very special to receive such a prize during this turbulent and very difficult time, says Sven Erik Renaa. - I will try anyway to rejoice and celebrate with my team and our guests and be happy for the fact that we continue to have full house and happy guests despite the difficult situation.
