What could be nicer on a sunny spring day in Stavanger, than taking lunch on the quayside, with a front seat view of the harbour. A shrimp sandwich, announced on the chalk board menu by the door, seemed appropriate. But was this a shrimp sandwich? — or rather, a salad? (see photo). In my experience shrimps should take pride of... More

Went here for my first food outing in Stavanger after relocating here only 6 days before. It was a Tuesday lunchtime as part of a group of 9, who had all visited previously, apart from me. When we got there there were only a few other people seated, but by the time we left around 1300ish it was quite busy.... More

Went for lunch with a group of friends. I had cod on the recommendation of the waitress. When it arrived it was one small piece with five potato chips (three not edible as too hard). A few bits of lettuce for decoration and that was all. When I paid I was horrified to be charged 289Nok. I was expecting half... More

This was the second visit in as many months. Fisketorget seems to be pretty busy most evenings which is testament to well prepared fish. Service is so so. Prices aren't cheap (but not too expensive compared to many other places). If you are looking for a WOW experience this isn't it. Want well prepared solid fish dishes in simple surroundings... More

I am not sure how it works, but this restaurant is magical, you order fish, and for it to be as fresh as it is, they must pop out and bring it from the sea, there and then. The quality is amazing, the flavour is wholesome, it is a place where one has to try everyone else's dish too, Everybody... More

In the heart of Stavanger this nice restaurant / fish market has some very good fish. The meals we tried were all good and tasty. If you like fish, then it's a no brainer 😊

Nice fish restaurant in Stavanger, with very fresh fish. They offer a daily menu, presented in a blackboard. I suggest the Catch of the day and the Skrei, typical Norwegian dish, available only from December to April

First rule of travelling and eating if the place is packed with locals it's always a good bet. The Fisketorget in Stavanger is no exception. Located on the quayside the restaurant is an add on to the seafood shop. So let's be right Norway/ seafood a good start. The restaurant actually is more like a bistro. A well stocked bar... More

Came here for lunch however menu were not written in English, even tho the waiter had explained. Ended up having a cold fish dish on my plate, wasn't the best choice to be honest, and the side wasn't that great either. They also gave countless of bread on the side and on the plate. Would come again as I believe... More
