Restaurants are closing!

It has been a challenging period for restaurants in Stavanger. With a decline in the oil price there has also been a decline in people going out to eat in Stavanger and that has influenced a lot of places. These are some of the places that have gone out of business or have chosen to close down in the last couple of years:

- Nero
- Cafe de France
- Mama Afrika
- Straen
- Timbuktu
- Le Café Francais
- Mathallen
- Kita (closing down December 22nd 2016)

But it is also good to see that new places are popping up: Basil & Co, Bar Social Eating, Mondo, The Shack, Villa 22, 26 North etc.

Excellent lunch at Mondo

We went to Mondo for lunch on a Tuesday and the place was pretty much empty. The menu is limited but there are good meat and fish options. I decided to have a duck confit and I was impressed by that. The portion was just right with the duck confit on top of a puree of potato and it was served with red cabbage stew and fried onions.

I also decided to have a dessert as it was warm bread pudding served with ice. The warm pudding was served in a hot rock bowl by Odd Standard together with rum raisin ice cream and chocolate and caramel. All in all a very good meal in a beautiful and stylish restaurant Read more about Mondo on their homepage!
