Pieder Ro is located along with its strongest competitors close to the fishmarket. However, if you want fish served in a traditional and rustic manner with a hint of haute cuisine, choose Pieder Ro. Always fresh and well prepared fish and a friendly and attentative staff.

I've eaten here several times over the past few years and really never gave it much thought..until I got robbed here yesterday. Firstly, the signage board outside posted some specials and prices....I saw that they had onion rings. Big whoop huh? They advertised eight onion rings for 85 kroner...which after some currency conversion comes out to $14.00 US for 8... More

Was looking for a place to take out of town visitors and thought of the nice location at the fish market. However, our group was apparently not young or hip enough to rate a table with a view, we were placed in a dark corner. I ordered Pieder Ro's fristelser for 139 NOK and got TWO dried out room temperature... More

A really nice place for chilling out in hot days with some cold beers! Been here a couple of times, and will gladly come back to this place. Very good food as well. Nice view located close to the sea..

In- and outside restaurant, serving good meals and refreshments. It is situated in the vibrant life of the fish market. It is a short walk from cruise port and the Kilden theatre- and conserthall. Open all year.

We had lunch here with a group of ten people. The location by the harbor is beautiful and the maritime atmosphere inside the restaurant is nice, but the food is overpriced (even by Norwegian standards) and uninspired. The menu offers a variety of meat and seafood, but almost nothing is local. The only fish on the menu was (farmed) salmon... More

Found this restaurant while walking from our cruise ship to the downtown area of Kristiansand. The four of us had four delicious lunches, complete with cold beer from Norway and excellent service. The restaurant was filled with tables of locals, which is always a good sign, and all were enjoying their dining experience and speaking in Norwegian. Check out the... More

We decided to go in as it looked nice, cosy and typical for the area. The services was really nice if not so effective and attentionate to all time. We had mussels, and then a fish soup unfortuantely they had both the same strange sauce just destroying the mussels taste. Mussels could have been wonderful just easily damped but no.... More

I can see "Sjoehuset" and Pieder Ro has the same owner - and it tells. Like at Sjoehuset, everything comes out of a bucket. The sause, the potatoes well everything comes from a factory and are heated up. Its the place for people who have absolutely no clue on what good food is. But fairly good service, but the knowledge... More
