Norway's black-gold treasure chest

There’s way more to Stavanger than a hunt for black gold, although the oil capital of Norway is not as popular of a destination as Oslo and Bergen. The city still retains some of its sleepy, provincial charm, but it’s now modern and cosmopolitan, and chock-full of nostalgic attractions and worthwhile treasures. Gamle Stavanger, with its winding streets and wooden houses, is still the main tourist draw. The fjords and scenic nature, however, are second-to-none, and there’s enough entertainment for the whole family to enjoy.

Fancy for Stavanger and co-owned by one of the top chefs in Norway, Kjartan Skjelde (also on TV-3’s Masterchef Norge). White table cloths, extensive wine selection and foam. Also the entire staff looks like they just walked out of GQ, Vogue or someother high fashion magazine (i.e. all model gorge).

One of the most popular restaurants in the city since they opened in 2004. Fine dining in a non-formal setting. Great food, today’s 3 or 4 course every day. TV chef Kjartan Skjelde is one of the founders and owners.

Restaurant and bar in relaxed atmopshere Editors' Note

Tango Bar og Kjøkken was opened in 2004 by Aslak Dalehaug and Kjartan Skjelde. The goal was then as now to create a restaurant with a knowledgeable kitchen and informal waiters.

Tango Bar og Kjøkken dares to do things different and only serves customers dishes and ingredients that they truly believe in.
