4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

The price is a bit steap, but the attraction is worth seeing! Beautiful flowers and terrific guide in a place like no others in this area.

“Wonderful place, nice relax after climbing up Preikestolen”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

The trip to the garden comes as a package deal incl. trip to the island, excursion in the garden and buffet dinner (drinks are at an extra cost). The price for the package - 890 NOK (113 EUR) per adult visitor - is a bit steep for where I come from, but considering food prices in Norwegian supermarkets, it's worth it.
While the main reason for visiting F&F is the garden, of course, the fish soup also must get some praise. Also - thanks to the kind and friendly staff! I spent a wonderful b-day there.

“beautiful place, average food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

this place is amazing, beautiful!! I've been here twice, and after the guided tour of the garden, the cook tells about the food. the way he talks about the food, makes your mouth water, but the actual food is just ok. It was not bad, but nothing great. Maybe he sets people's expectations too high. I was there a year apart with my two visits, and they had exactly the same food both times.

“Color symphony and a littel bit of paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

Stavanger is a nice city, great scenery, beautiful fjords, historic sites. But it also has a secret - "Flor og Fjære". If you love flowers and plants, this is must. Take the time and listen to one of the guides when they show you around on this island. By the way - you dont have to love flowers to be impressed by this place. The island is a littel bit of paradise.
The food is OK.
Would recomend to visit the island when i weather is nice.
The fee for the island is "included" inn the fee for the boat.

“The most wonderful place in Stavanger”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

I have been here several times and it getting more and more spectacular. There is flower and trees of all kind and fishpams with Japanese fish. F & F is on an island but you can get there on a regular boat.
The food and wine on the resurant is excellent and all the people working here knows their hospitality.
