Had a 3 course here. Excellent food. The wine pairing is superb. The waiters have a lot of knowledge about wine pairing here. Absolutely reccommended!

The restaurant practically shares space with another restaurant called "Tango". Two totally different styles. The ideia of "Fish and Cow" is good, light dishes, clorfull and medium sizes. Eating fish in Stavanger is always better. The fish is fresh! The service can be quick, depending...on the day. In hot seasons it is always full.More

We were a large group and they managed to find us a table at short notice. The food is good, staple stuff, very well prepared and presented. The portions are large and of good choice to suit most. Very impressive fries with cheese and home-made...ketchup. The price was most reasonable for Stavanger.More

We had to wait for 15 min for the waiter as he actually told us “I need to finish the payment with a table before I can come and talk with you whether there’s an available table or not”. Then he offered us a table...in the middle of the resturant when all the waiters kept on hitting us from the back while they were serving the other tables. Food was very average and expensive. We orders almost all the dishes. The salmon appetizer was tiny. The stake I ordered it medium well but I got it well done and burned. The fish dish was unavailable and they got us the cod fish dish and it was heavy and o early cooked and the garnish was full of oil and burned too. The service was very very poor.More

My entrecote was very tasty but so thin that it would be catagorized as a "minute steak", the mashed potatoes were thin as soup and tasted burned. The pork belly (Norwegian juleribbe) did not have the traditional "svor" (crackle) but pork rind from a snack...bag. I do not know what the cook was thinking but it ruined the dish. We had cocktails when we ordered but were half way through the meal before we could get the attention of awaitress so we could have wine with our meal. The service started out good but it seemed like they all knew the meal was bad. They seemed to change positions too so it was difficult to know who had our table, ie our waitress was suddenly the hostess, the bartender changed over to cutting up bread, etc. etc.. All in all a BIG (and expensive) disappointment.More

This restaurant is in the downtown Stavanger, by the side of the enterence to a shopping mall and Starbucks. It has quite dark lightning with dark furnitures. The service here is really great. We had a lunch meny here and they serve variety of dishes...of fish and meat. The portions are of good size and good, but not exceptional. The prices are around 24 euros pr.dish. Ok place to eat in the senter of the downtown.More

Good service and friendly staff. Had the lamb and it was tender, soft and delicious. Place gets very busy towards the evening. Reservation is a must.

This restaurant offers good food and a nice atmosphere. At our time of visit, the service was not up to speed as we had to wait long for almost everything.

This was such a great dining experience. The food and the service both lived up to top restaurants in the world’s greatest cities. The service was outstanding, attentive and fun. The food was amazing. You won’t be disappointed.

This was hands down our best meal in Stavanger. We only went to a few places, but we loved this place. We came back on the last bus from Pulpit Rock and it was late and we were all tired, sore, and hungry. We had...two teenagers in tow too. The kids ate burgers and fries and said they were possibly the best they have had. My husband and I shared the fish soup and the fish of the day. Both were excellent, but the fish of the day was one of the best meals we have ever had. The kitchen was just about to close and they let us come in anyway. When we tried to rush the kids to make a decision, the waitress was so kind and told us to take our time and enjoy ourselves. She really turned our night around and helped us have a relaxing evening after a long and tiring day. We would definitely go there again!More
