An amazing meal on a quiet night. The fish (Lysing/Hake) was superbly prepared with fennel and winter cabbage. Delicious with the buttery sauce. Together with a crispy extra dry (3 g/l sugar ) vibrant Bauhausrock riesling from Mosel, it became an superb combination! The chocolate fondant with a glass of Mas Amiel was also a winner. Good and friendly service... More

This is a nice place. Trendy and modern cafe with a good selection of coffee, sweets and sandwiches. Freshly made sandwiches, but a little pricey for the quality of the food. I har "Leverpostei med bacon og sopp" a pate of liver with bacon and mushrooms. Looked very good, tasted ok, but it was disappointing that they used a factory... More

Hi Thank you for taking the time to give us a feedback. Our pate is NOT factory made. But I realize that you may have expected it to be hot or warm. Cornichons, we will lock at, these should not be rubbery We take your input into our work to become better. Regards Charles & De More

A really good restaurant in the heart of Sandnes. Beautiful interiour. Food is well composed and they use fresh, seasonal and local produce. Thumbs up! Great for buisness dinners, dates, a night out with your mates or with the family. It is a bit pricy. But then again, what you pay is what you get. Not only do i recommend... More

We had dinner here after a hard hike to Preikestolen and I wobbled into this restaurant with my two sisters and brother in law. My sister who live locally bragged about this place. We went to the more casual side of the restaurant instead of the fine dining one. We clearly didn't dress for any fine dining experience after being... More

We had a dinner at the small side room of the main restaurant! Where there was a small tobacco shop earlier. The service and the attitude of the personnel were impressive! Well done! The composition of the 5 dishes were top! Obvious professional people at the kitchen too!

Best for the several types of bread and focaccia. All made with high quality genuine ingredients. They are also excellent base ingredient for delicious sandwiches or salads. The atmosphere is nice and friendly. Clean. In the center of Sandnes where several shops and galleiries are open to be visited in the walking area.

We profited from this week's offer of good food for 100 NOK. This is less than half the price for a normal main course at Charles&de. Even so, the food was tasty, the amount was adequate, if maybe not as elaborate as we are used to there. Very good value for money! Probably because of this special offer, the place... More

The menu is big and they have something for everyone. The place was crowded so we made a reservation being 11 people. We had a really nice lunch/brunch and the portions was quite big. Some Of us felt that there was more bread than anything Else though. We did expect more Of a Tjessem-place comparing the food and the price.

Description
Mathuset Charles & De opened its doors in 2005. The name tells of exquisite taste and the importance of good cooperation. Charles Tjessem was given the title world champion in 2003, when he won the gold medal in the prestigious competition Bocuse d'Or. He has also been the general manager for the Culinary Institute and captain for the Norwegian Culinary Team.

Tjessem is known for its great commitment to craftsmanship based on selected ingredients from local food. He is uncompromising with regard to the quality of the finished result and clever to let talented employees forward. With the team he has a select group of highly skilled professionals who will go to great lengths to thrill you.

Teamwork & Passion is the secret to a good working environment. If you visit us often, you know that we like to renew the concept periodically. We like challenges and loves to dream up new and improved ideas. The menus changes 5 times a year. It gives us the opportunity to focus on the best seasonal ingredients and prepare them according to etiquette when they are at their best.

Our values ​​are reflected in what we serve. We are concerned with honesty and purity - pure flavors, pure ingredients, clean employees and clean kitchen. We believe in transparency. We are popular, but snobs with cigars are of course also welcome with us.
