This is by far the best restaurant in Stavanger.
As a frequent traveller to Stavanger I have visited all high end restaurants in the city.
I have visited Spiseriet twice and both times I left with a full stomach and a big smile.
The restaurant looks a bit empty when you enter it, I guess they need to work a bit on the decor.
However once you are seated it feels warm and cozy, especially by the window.
And the staff: relaxed, funny, attentive and professional.
At our first visit before christmas we were greeted by the restaurant manager.
When he showed us to our table he cracked a joke I still laugh at.
The menu was a set three-course menu with some variations and possibilities for upgrades.
The courses aren't really described in the menu but the waitor gave a good description, even though he insisted he wanted the exact composition to be a surprise for us.
We ordered the three courses with the recommended winepackage.
The food and the wines paired with the food was excellent.
Especially the wine matched with the duck!
I have never seen such a high class wine (M. Chapoutier Les Granits) being part of a wine package so modestly priced as here.
The second visit was just as great.
Three courses with quail as the main course at the prices they have, talk about value for money!
Our blonde waitress Matilda was very skilled.
This evening the restaurant was very busy, but all staff was on top of things.
Was a bit sceptical having carrot cake a a dessert, but loved it.
But I guess you shouldn't expect less when eating at a restaurant staffed by award winning chefs.
I will come back and can highly recommend it!
