“Poor service”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

Stangholmen is beautiful, and has two dining "concepts"; the reastaurant which is apparently very good and the "kro" which is more like a cafeteria. We had lunch at the latter, and was quite disappointed. While we didn't expect a culinary experience (we had pizza and pitas with chicken), we did expect the food to be warm and served properly. Instead two of us got the pizzas we had ordered, but the pitas did not arrive. After about fifteen minutes it became clear that they were just being served to another guest, and by the time this got sorted they were completely cold. We asked to have new ones, and they took half an hour to arrive, and were lukewarm. By this point we were fed up, I told this to one of the waitresses and actually were given my money back for the pitas.

Generally I would not have made fuss about such a meal, but considering we payed more tha 150NOK for one pita i expected slightly more...

“Great food and a unique dining experience!”
Reviewed July 10, 2013 via mobile

Dinner at the restaurant at Stangholmen is the perfect summer dining experience! An amazing little island just outside Risør with a great kitchen and even better ambiance! Both our meat and fish dishes turned out great, and both kids and adults loved it! Make sure to make it up to the lighthouse bar on the 2nd floor to watch the boats coming in during sunset!
