“Horrible service, steep prices, tasteless food”
Reviewed 27 April 2012

Went here for anniversary celebration, was a horrible experience.
First off, the prices are high, though that can be excused as beef is expensive in Norway.
We ordered 2 large steaks, one rare, one medium, 1 Bearnaise and 1 Red Wine Sauce. What we received was, 1 rare steak, and one steak going from almost raw on one end, to well done on the other.

We got 2 Bearnaise and no Red Wine Sauce, when I asked for my Red Wine Sauce got treated quite rudely before I got it. The Red Wine Sauce was the only thing with any taste on my plate.
The creamed potatoes tasted watery, and the portion was incredibly small, there was almost no vegetables, and the meat was tasteless, incredibly tender though.
The Bearnaise that my date got was lukewarm, tasted almost like mayo, and was unpalatable.

The dessert we got was apple cake with ice cream, and a Mango and Strawberry sorbet. The ice cream were both covered in Blackcurrant(solbær) sauce, which overpowered all taste in the dessert.

In conclusion I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone, tasteless food, bad service, high price.

“Probably the best steaks in Arendal”
Reviewed 10 April 2012

Went to Mor with 5 other friends after a long day of work. Without a reservation they managed to find a nice table for us close to the bar, which was absolutely fine. The wine suggestion was a perfect combination and inexpensive. The service was good and playful along with the tone of the table which made us feel even more welcome. The choices of cuts is maybe a little overwhelming if you are not sure what you prefer but if you do it's very easy to be happy there. Definitely would recommend it!

“Great steaks!”
Reviewed 31 January 2012

Ate here with a colleague and we both had the steak and it was excellent, particularly with the sauce we had. Portions are not badly sized but are not overly generous. The salad bar is excellent however.

Service is fast and friendly and the house wine was pretty good. Not cheap, but what is in Norway?

“Well done!”
Reviewed 19 September 2011

Steakhouse centrally located portside in the town of Arendal - easily accessible if you are staying at one of the central hotels. Atmosphere is better than what it might appear to be from the outside.
-Not an extensive menu, but a number of steaks in four different sizes, two fish main courses, a few other main courses and a childrens menu available.
The principle is the same as for Big Horn Steakhouses - you write your own order on a note - indicating starter, main course, how you prefer it cooked, potato choice and side dishes. Price level similar to Big Horn, but food is better at MØR; tastier, larger portions and better presentation.
Starters are priced around NOK 70,- main courses just below NOK 300,- and wine by the glass from NOK 89,- to 107,- (!)
Service is fair, bearing in mind you basically make your own order.
