“Good food, lacking in some details”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

The food here is delicious and so is the wine. The service is fast and friendly but could have been more attentive. The water didn't get refilled. You also refill your own wine glasses which is perfectly fine for me, no need for fanciness. For the price of the meal however it could have been nice to have a piece of good bread with good butter instead of bland bread with regular Tine butter in small plastic cups.

Most importantly though the food and wine is delicious, served in intimate surroundings in a very old buildling. A small taste of Norway.

“Rudolph and Shamu”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

My nephew and I had two days to spend in Stavanger and ate here both days. On Friday I had the reindeer and he had the whale tenderloin (which I had on a previous visit in 2010). On Saturday, after a day climbing Preikestolen, we went back and switched entrees, but I also ordered The Fish Soup and my nephew ordered the meat platter as appetizers. NOTHING I have EVER been served there is less than superb! Anyone travelling to Stavanger owes it to them selves to eat here. And ask for Olaf, he waited on us both evenings and was wonderful!

“Best meal in Stavanger”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

Three course fixed price dinner-delicious baked cod (and I don't even like fish!) and delicious chocolate dessert (like molten chocolate in a cake). Great friendly service even though we did not have a reservation (I'd recommend doing so). Tons of authentic atmosphere.

“Excellent if you are looking for venison”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

A busy restaurant with interior styled like the interior of a pirate ship of old. Bear on tap and a reasonable selection of wines. Equally good if you are after a fish meal or a good steak.
