On a recent business trip, I went cruising in and around Kristiansand in a colleagues yacht and we were hungry as the evening approached. We stopped by the concert hall and anchored the boat as it was too large to cruise under the bridge into the habour. After a short 3 minute walk we arrived at Vaerthuset Pieder Ro restaurant....

We enjoyed an afternoon meal here after exploring Kristiansand on foot during a cruise stop. The staff was very accommodating and I particularly enjoyed a rich fish and seafood chowder. Lovely setting near the fish market and cruise terminal. Recommended!

I eat here often for business and pleasure, as its one of the few spots in town. The meal is always delicious and extremely flavorful. Everything is good! It is hit or miss on the friendliness of the staff. Enjoy!

Look for a restaurant with dogs and children, and you'll always find the place where the locals eat. The fish market area in Kristiansand, Norway, offers passing tourists an enticing choice of half a dozen restaurants clustered around the port, all of them as similar in appearance as their menus. But Pieder Ro stood out as the most Norwegian -... More

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
