“Good food and service”
Reviewed March 27, 2014

It's not innovative very fancy place, but a cosy restaurant in one of the oldest timber houses of Stavanger. Food is good. Would specially recommend it for traditional Norwegian things like cod with lever and roe and moose. It's a place for a good time with Your colleagues, especially if they are grown up men with respect for bloody biff and traditions.
PS. it's an additional plus when you can smoothly og from the restaurant to a pub just pushing 1 door...

“Great place for Lunch or Dinner”
Reviewed February 22, 2014

Great little place we went back to a few times. They had an amazing fisksuppe and nice little outdoor patio. Excellent service. Tried the seafood which was excellent and the reindeer which was very delicious. View overlooking the harbor and water.

Would recommend to anyone going.

“Good local food”
Reviewed February 19, 2014 via mobile

The menu is small but what they serve is good. I had the moose which was really nice. The way it was served was really traditional and the flavors combined really well. Service is good and they are not in a rush to get you out of the door when you finished dinner. Would definitely go here again when in Stavanger.

“Excellent lunch, so good that I went two days in a row!”
Reviewed December 19, 2013

The restaurant is close to the harbour, it offers a fairly relaxed style, in an old building full of history and collector's curios.
The local Tou beer and Beef of Whale (Hval in Norwegian) are most excellent, although controversial, it is minke whale which is not at all endangered, it is like the best steak ever!
Prices are average for the Stavanger area, making this a more affordable establishment than most. Attentive staff are friendly and pleased to help.

“Decent, beautiful restaurant, good food”
Reviewed November 14, 2013

The restaurant itself is a lovely old building and the atmosphere is great. The food they serve is good, better than what most other restaurants in Stavanger serve, imho. The only thing that can be a little bit of a disappointment, is the staf. Some staf members are very friendly, others are not particularly. If you have the wrong waiter serving you that evening, it does make a difference in the experience.
