Good food

I had the Siddisburger that had klippe fish and came with a nice side salad and potatoes. It was very good and filling. Definately recommend. The restaurant is nicely located with a view of the harbor.

This is a very nice typical Norwegian place. I walked in at 5:00pm and there was plenty of room although the tables outdoor were almost full (8 degrees C!) The waitresses were very kind and took their time to explain the menu I had the fish soup which was superb and the pepper trout which was not that great (not... More

We have traveled to Stavanger many times to visit relatives and recharge my husband's inner Norwegian. Incredible fish, elk and seasonal specials. We often find ourselves planning our days around dining at Sjohuset Skagen. Why? The main reason for us is the creamy Fiskesuppe (fish soup). This is the soup they serve in Norwegian heaven - good pieces of fish,... More

I eat at this place at least four-five times every month, and it´s a reason we keep going back there. The food is good, and they keep changing the menu so that your choices of food will vary with the season. Highly recommended.

I spent six weeks in Stavanger and so ate at almost all the restaurants. I kept revisiting here as the food was excellent. Not the cheapest but definitely worth the money. Portion size is good and the quality was delicious. Service was good too with friendly staff.

It is central in a refurbished old marine warehouse, still all wood and brick and personality. Norwegian food is very good, I had a dish with cod, cod liver, cod tounge etc. very nice. We had local beer, very good. Wine also available. A bit disappointing the dessert, I had chocolate fondant. My wife does it better! Service was attentive,... More

Great food, try the seafood. They offer today's catch from the sea, but also have other things on the menu. Good selection of beer/wine and skilled waiters.

It was splendid June afternoon, sunny and very warm. Me and my friend went for the walk in the harbour. There is a lot of restaurants in this area. We have chosen Sjohuset Skagen just because they had the whale stake in their menu. We have never had this meat so we have decided to eat it. It was just... More
