Solsiden Restaurant is a seafood restaurant where we use only the best raw materials the coast has to offer. Besides a variety of different fish we always have "Plateau des Fruits de Mer" on the menu. This is our specialty consisting of oysters, clams, crabs, mussels, shrimp, crayfish (when they are available fresh), lobster and king crab. The dishes can be accompanied by one of the over 250 wines from our wine menu. Solsiden Restaurant is located on Akershusstranda right below Akershus Fortress. Enjoy the magnificent sunset over the Oslo Fjord through the windows and open sliding doors. Here Oslo harbor is like a marine painting that changes from minute to minute. Welcome and Bon Appetit!

Overall: 4 Comments: an old warehouse can host many guests when set up for it, and manned. Surprisingly attentive staff. Seafood in focus. Reservation: 4 Location: 4 - close to Rådhusplassen below Akershus festning (castle) overviewing the inner Oslo harbor and Aker brygge. This is exceptionally nice on a sunny summer evening.

The food and scenery is good. I recommend a 3- or 5-course meal over the shellfish plate. Our waiter seemed unhappy and not motivated at all to take care of us at a level one could expect at this sort of place.

The location is awesome. Having the afternoon sun all evening is beautiful. We got a nice table outside and enjoyed it. I ordered Salade Nicoise and that was the smallest salad ever - and I just laughed since it had a cost of NOK 195,- - most of the salad was just green salad, half an egg and two small... More

The shellfish platter was excellent, but the service did not meet the standards. Some of the servants were excellent, but it doesn't make up for all the ones below standards. The food and wine was good, as were the views. Solsiden is worth a visit despite the unexperienced employees.

The restaurant is only open during summer. Saturday evening. They have two dinner servings, 5 pm and 8 pm. Make sure to take second serving for more enjoyment, as the first have limited time. We had a 7 course meal with wine pairing. The wine pairing was not set, but choosen by the waitor for extra surprise. Very crowded, but... More

We are faithful Solsiden customers and enjoyed another perfect meal today. We love the three-course-meal of the day with a lovely bottle of Wittmann Riesling. Lots of other guests were enjoying the plateau de fruits de mer - nice to look at, but too much work for us. We've returned to this restaurant time after time, and are never disappointed.... More
