“Great place!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2012

Good food, uncomplicated and tasty! Not the cheapest of restaurants in Stavanger, but defenetly far from the pricy ones. The ambiance is truly great, which can also be said about the service! The only drawback is that it can get very noisy in the restaurant, better not bring a date here that you plan to have private and intimate conversations with because you might have to end up screaming to be able to talk to eachother..
Family-friendly!

“Wonderful atmosphere”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2012

Great atmosphere and great location on the seafront. The food is nice, but not spectacular. Popular all throughout the week, so a reservation could be a good idea. As a repeat guest through many years I would like to see them change their menu after all these years...

“Good quality food, big portions.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012

A very popular restaurant and is part of a franchise , we found at least two the same concept two other places in the nearby area.
The quality of the food is in general very good and relatively affordable to be Norway with around $120per person including wine and tip. (A service charge is included so extra tip is not required. It can in fact be regarded as a bit vulgar to tip at some restaurants in Norway!)
The service was excellent, specially at the one in Stavanger where we had a Swedish waiter. The recommended Italian wine turned out to be an excellent choice, kudos to the waiters on that one. Overall they had an impressive wine selection, both in quality and quantity. Only minus would be the lack of good quality Californian wines.
We had all a set three course menu but could change from fish to meat for main course for two of us, something that often seem to be a problem at restaurants in Norway.

Overall a nice and pleasant experience, recommended for good quality food and wine.

Had a fantastic meal, but I think the price was a bit too much.

“Sometimes good”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2011

This is a pretty classy restaurant in the middle of Sandnes. Cosy atmosphere and it looks nice inside. The food is expensive. You don`t always get the best quality and service though!
But good location!
