Come here for the very authentic Norwegian seaside experience. Going to restaurants like this in your boat (you can take the little ferry from the Risør harbor) is SO summer and SO typical for how Norwegians enjoy the long, blond, summer evenings! The food is quite good, but I won't call it gourmet... Bring friends and party until daybreak .. which is extraordianry earoy around the end of June and beginning of July.
Quite often there will be concerts in the outside venue next door. Listen in for almost free...

This is a fish restaurant and out of 7 of us, there were 5 vegetarians but we contacted them before about this situation and they said they’d make us something ‘special’ so we thought this a good sign and decided to go.
The fish starters and mains looked amazing BUT, the vegetarians had-

starter: Half an avocado and some mango.
This had no taste, no innovation, nothing.. and was 148kr.

Main: a stuffed pepper.
The stuffed peppers were f***ing raw and the filling was really disgusting with chunks of carrots and capers. 1 piece of broccoli on the side. I don’t think they could be bothered to cook the damn thing. This was 325kr. The SAME as a beautiful fish dish.

One of our party went to go question this and she got shouted at by the owner which was awful.

Thanks for the terrible evening.

Stangholmen Lighthouse is an attraction that you must experience. Especially for birthdays and gatherings with a bar in the lighthouse, you only have to bring with you. invite friends to experience something shared.recomanded rogerw

A magnificent location, wonderful service and ok food. A nice menue and good wine selection, unfortunately the fish did not seem 100% fresh - yet it was ok. Would definitely go back - the location makes everything else secondary.

Nature combined with good restaurant. The pizza parma was very good. The cook even had time to show the kids how he made the pizza dough, swirling around in the air . boat to the island is small so you need to be there in time. From 12.00 every half hour. 100 kr/adult one way
