“Fabolus”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2014

This place is just amazing, it's like entering another world. They have a garden full of palm trees and cactuses. Ponds with carp. Great food in the restaurant. You use nearly one day, but it`s wort it.

“Stunning”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2014

Having worked in Stavanger for several months, I was taken here by a colleague as my parting gift! What a gift!

We went in September. You leave the harbour around 5pm and return after 9pm. After a tour of the beautiful gardens, beaches and other areas, you are free to wonder on your own until dinner. The micro climate of this island allows for stunning flowers and tress to grow, including palm trees.

Dinner was delicious, a fantastic and fresh buffet. Before dinner the chef comes out to explain the menu and with that you get a pre-dinner stand up comedy show - he really is very funny.

After dinner you are free to wonder around the gardens again. The sun was setting as we did this and I now have some of the most beautiful photos I could ever wish for.

A truly unforgettable trip. You must visit if you can!

“A gastronomic and horticultural delight”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

Just a short boat ride from Stavanger this place is well worth the trip. A tour of the beautiful gardens reveal flowers, bushes and trees which clearly belong elswhere. Grapes and palm trees have no place in this part of the world but thrive, thanks to the island's micro-climate and the skill of the gardeners. After my first trip I was inspired to grow an apple tree in the espelier method as I have a terraced garden in nearby Stavanger. My 'Coxs Orange Pippins' this year were delicious. The gardens are not the only attraction here however. The restaurant's chef is not only pretty good at preparing food but also a wit of some standing. His sarcastic comments when presenting the days menu make the food taste so much better. All in all Flor og Fjære is well worth a visit, I've been four times and, due to improvements and updating of the gardens, it never fails to please.

“Early summer”

Beautiful place to visit in summer if interested in gardening. One have to book the travel in advance and it includes the boat trip and dinner.

“Lovely, but very expensive...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

It's an unique opportunity to visit a rare island in the middle of the Fjord, see the different plants they cultivate there, and have dinner, but it's clearly overpriced (even for Norwegian standards).
