The combination of great craft beers and delicious local food make this a must-visit for those in Oslo for a short time. With a relaxed, pub-feel, the kitchen delivers bold and complex entrees celebrating the local cuisine. We had the lamb racks and handmade sausage, along with a delicious Norwegian brew. Highly recommended.

This bar, which is opposite the Bristol Hotel on Grensen, just one street up from Karl Johan's Gate, is a really cool spot for an evening drink. We happened on it almost by chance - and I'm glad we did. They've got a huge range of local cask beers, as well as Norwegian and other Scandavian lagers (and Stella if... More

This is a delight, literally, just across the street from the Hotel Bristol. It has the warm cosy feel of a beer keller, and is clearly adored by the throngs of Norwegians who gather here for a few beers, some nibbles or a more substantial meal. The selection of tap beer is good but the bottle selection of craft beers... More

Went to Handverker having read good reviews. I was found a table pretty quickly despite it being busy. Homemade bread and caraway butter to whet the appetite came out with drinks. They have over 250 beers; ask the staff for guidance. I was about to have Odin's Tipple but was advised on Skumring... Much better! The sausages were delicious. Will... More
