The cocktails served are very delicious and some are quite unusual and exotic. Prices are quite good for Norway and the quality you get. Furthermore, the place is very cozy and great for meeting up with friends!

Timbuktu Restaurant The restaurant is an exotic oasis in Stavanger nightlife - in both design, interior decoration and menus. The restaurant on a mezzanine is both open and intimate at once. Our menu draws inspiration from several parts of the world, and sets the frame for a social and tasteful food experience.   Sharing: Our social concept for two or more guests together. We offer a menu that allows you to try our all our appetizers and starters, our main courses and all our desserts. You can put together the menu after your own preferences as well. The main courses are served in bowls and plates all at once at the table, and its ready to share! We can also reccommend trying our sushi menu.   Timbuktu Bar From the 360-degree shaped bar in the center of the room, our bartenders serve drinks, surrounded by social sofa groups. Every weekend DJs make the room come alive at Timbuktu. NEW: We've expanded our sushi-menu in the bar, and highly recommend it.   Timbuktu also offer year-round outdoors serving area with all rights, heating and roof. Informal, social and elegant mood. Age limit: 22 years.
