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.

Lovely garden, nice restaurant with a beautiful view. Good food, but very boring children's dinner. But kids enjoyed the "free" ice cream bar outside. Chef André says in his stand-up show before dinner that he don't like black coffee. I love black coffee, but the one they serve there was terrible.

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.

Cannot reccomend this magnificent oasis enough. Both times I was there, my guide was Lise, who’s vibrant energy and conversational ease really pulled me in.

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!

Breathtaking what this family has to present of flowering beauty. No botanic park he said, and showed us a fantastic garden with no flower names, just beauty. Very impressive park without the "given" best location. We have so many fantastic photos from this visit. Hard to believe it is in Norway. After seeing the park we entered the restaurant and we got a delicious high class three course dinner menu. Very nicely presented to us all by the funny chef. Impressive meal! Nice routine around coffee and ice cream. Eat as much ice as you like and bring the coffee with you in a thermos into the garden. Very nice and efficient boat trip to and from Stavanger. A strong memory for us as a group. Impressed by the family and the atmosphere. Friendly, beautiful, informal, tasty. Well managed and thought through!

Even if you're not into gardening, you have to visit this incredibly beautiful place. The total experience is unforgettable; The boat ride to the island, an interesting tour of the garden where you learn the history behind it, delicious three course dinner in a restaurant overlooking the sea and colorful flowers and then ample time to wander around on your own before taking the boat back to Stavanger. There are so many photo opportunities; Flowers obviously, waterfalls, beaches, fish, birds, rocks, and romantic bridges and walkways.
We were there on a rainy day, and were mesmerized. i can only imagine what it would be like with sun and blue sky... There are many chairs and benches where we would have liked to sit and only take in the atmosphere and beauty if they weren't soaking wet.
Unfortunately, rain is more common than sun in this area, but I think I'll give it another go next year. They change most of the flowers and the color scheme every year, so even if the weather is equally bad, I know it will be worth a visit.

It's a beautiful island with an incredible variety of flowers. There's also lunch and dinner at the local restaurant. It's run by a family who has built it from scratch. The guides tell us the whole romantic story.

lovely surroundings but the food at the restaurant is over-rated and way too expensive. They obviously cater to the business crowd and don't care about the locals

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.
