Nedre Standgate 15


The fixed-price menus here are arguably the best in town. Stylish and popular, this restaurant is set beside a cobble-covered square that opens directly onto Stavanger's Vågen (harborfront). Inside, within a decor of pale birch with ebonized trim, there's a busy bar area (Mon-Sat until between midnight and 1:30am) and somewhat crowded tables. Try the masterly salad of lime- and olive-marinated skate or a platter of very fresh sushi as a main course. Drawing upon the bounty of a rugged land, the chefs will delight you with the catch of the day, such as roasted halibut with pickled fennel in an anise-flavored gravy. You might also savor the roasted lamb with a Madeira-flavored gravy and a side helping of couscous. To wake up your taste buds, opt for the redfish with passion fruit sauce or else filet of pork with a spicy tomato and pear chutney.
