We had lunch at the boat shaped bar and Martin graciously brought us some gravlax salmon and Aquavit to try so we could experience some Norwegian specialties. We also enjoyed an open faced shrimp sandwich along with with a glass of pear cider and local beer. All food was delicious and the service was excellent. I would recommend eating here.

The location of this place is excellent on a sunny summer day next to the fish market. The menu is not too extensive but offers both seafood, steaks, salads and burgers. However the norwegian type fishsoup is perhaps the best option here.

I had my ferie in Kristiansand with my girlfriend, and had some drinks, as well as some snacks. Besides the food was good as expected, the drinks (proseco, risling, gin&tonic) was great. But the main, and most important for me as a waiter myself, the service was exceptional. I have been to quite some places in Norway, and as a... More

Excellent tornedos, good selection of both meat and fish dishes. Choose to sit outside or inside. Sometimes during the summer there's a free concert just outside the restaurant. The staff were friendly and helpful and took special requests without hesitation.

Kristiansand may not be the culinary capital of Norway, or anywhere, but Pieder Ro would still rank up there with the best. Great food, fine service, superb location, good value; hard to beat!

Very good food with a nice selection on the menu, and extremely good wines. Service was exemplary and my only complaint would be that my "rare" steak was a little over-done. Very tasty though.
