    Unexpectedly wonderful
    blown away by how good this place is. We got lucky with the weather, and if it was a really windy day it might not have been as magical, but even then I think it would be good. I was expecting a few palm trees. Some small gardens. Maybe a gimmick or two. But this whole place is stunning. The way the landscape has turned into a microclimate is incredible. The food was great. The hospitality was great. A must see if in Stavanger during the Summer months.

    Amazing and stunning views
    We were invited on this trip, and quite honestly, we really didn't know what we were going to see. However, upon arriving at the island, the sheer beauty was stunning. It's an easy walk through the island, with each garden having its own unique and breathtaking view. The halibut meal and wine pairings were outstanding. This trip was well worth the price. Shootout to our tour guide and the serving staff as they were top notch.

    Wao 😍
    Wao! Just Wao! This place is magical! Incredibly beautiful gardens. A feast for the eyes, specially in a sunny day in the middle of the summer. It is pricy to come here, but I definitely recommend it IF you enjoy gardens. The ticket includes a 20 min boat to get there and back, a 30 min tour around the garden and 3 course meal. The meal was good. And the restaurant is very nicely decorated with trees inside. Highly recommended!

    Beautiful gardens
    So beautiful! A little expensive but very worth the trip. Locals also mentioned to me that its worth the visit, so I splurged. Not many solo people, it would be better I think as a couple or with friends. But still lovely and I'm glad I went! Food was pretty good, and the wine package I thought was a fair deal (it's an upgrade). The ferry is heated and covered, so it's a comfy trip over (about 20 minutes).

A beautiful place and garden. Impressive setup that requires a lot of work each season. We where told that they plant 50000 summer flowers each year in the summer garden. Done by 5 persons over 3 months.

They have put up a lot of different theme areas. Impressive that they manage a dessert theme in the wet cold west coast of Norway.

We was in a group where one of the grandsons of the founder did the show and tell. He was unfortunately a bit arrogant. Probably tired of telling and answering the same questions over and over again.

We come with kids and a dog. I would highly recommend not bringing dogs or kids to this place. What kids are interested in fauna and flowers? Take it rather as a couple trip.

The restaurant had a cool head from the Netherlands. He was very entertaining. Unluckily the food was not close to being good or balanced.

We got served a very good fish soup with four different fish’s in it. With cod and salmon among them. That was the best part of the meal.

The main dish had a baked broccoli mouse, that was way too tasteless. The Chicken was over cooked and then had a tasteless skin. The ham was the best part. It tasted ok, but the sauce was not a good fit (some sour kind).

The service in the restaurant was bad. I needed to ask three times to order drinks. Maybe we where a bit unlucky placed behind a big table with a birthday party taking all the servants attention.

We even got served a kids menu without ordering it (they changed it fast luckily). We observed a kid on the 50 years party that probably should have had it …

With our dog I would have preferred to be placed close to the door, not in the end of the room.

The boat trip back and forth was very pleasant.

All in all I would recommend this place to people interested in gardening and that enjoys beautiful gardens. Don’t get here for the food.

Their gardens are very beautiful, and it is clear that they have a great love for gardening and garden design (even though I don't understand why they try to grow also tropical plants).
BUT
1. The boat, tour and meal should take 2-3 hours, 3.5 maximum. 5 hours are a lot of time and it gets VERY boring. I felt trapped on the island.

2. The vegetarian food, although beautifully plated, was NOT very tasty. Getting a plate of vegetables (with good bread and very good olive oil) is a somwhat weird alternative to sausage and cheeses plate. The tortilla soup was nice but the strong olive taste took over . And the main was almoust ridiculous: a tiny piece of vegetarian burger, some vegetables, a generic souce, some beans and lentils, and some nuts on the side. It almost seemed someone in the kitchen goggled "what vegans eat" and put the ingredients on the plate. It was not very tasty, my children ate nothing out of this and we paid a lot. The dessert did not save the situation as well.

We would not recommand this to vegans/vegetarians, definitely not with children.

We have heared about Flor og Fjær many time through friends bit never had time or opportunity to visit this beautiful garden. It is unnelieveable! The gardner took us through the garden expaining various aspects of the garden. He let us enjoy the garden as children and completely letting us enjoy it. The whole garden enjoyment topped with a superb meal introduced by chef Andre! Superb presentation! Thank you. We got the opportunity to enjoy the dessert and coffee wherwever we felt like sitting down and enjoying the pure beauty of the Eden! Endre the gardner’s son i would politely call him :) made is believe that everyone can create something magical. Thank you so much for the presentation!!! We certainly come back soon!

The gardens are fantastic, came around 24 years ago and they have developed the area beyond recognition. The themed gardens and water features are a feast for the senses, it hardly felt like Norway especially as the day was so warm and sunny. My trip was subsidised but if it hadn’t been I would have been pretty fed up with my meal as the vegan option while acceptable was not to the standard of the rest of the group.

My wife and I visited in 2018, she the gardener and me the don't know. To say I was impressed is a gross understatement. We have visited many gardens and shows all around England but I have never seen such an incredible achievement. To transform what would have been a desolate rocky island into some of the most beautiful gardens I have seen is nothing short of magic as far as I am concerned. To make our trip even more memorable, the family members and staff we met were all so friendly, informative and welcoming and the delicious food topped off one of the most enjoyable day trips I have made. Glad i had charged the camera's battery, there were so many great photo opportunities I could have spent another day just clicking away. We were told that there were plans for further development and more gardens so have this on our to do list for another visit in the not too distant future.
