Alfred is a cafe with local, sustainably produced and seasonal food. We welcome the Nobel Peace Center visitors, passers-by, tourists and neighbors alike to an informal and relaxed atmosphere inside and in our outdoor patio. Our Finnish Head Chef Joni Leskinen has composed a menu combining craftsmanship and carefully selected local produce. Swedish Mattias Åstrand is our new chef in Alfred.

Excellent stop for lunch

After visiting the Peace Center, we had a drink on the terrace of Alfred's and, tempted by the dishes passion by our eyes, decided to stay for lunch on that beautiful sunny day. We had an excellent meal in a delightful, friendly, relaxed environment. A great place, and very friendly service.

This cafe is part of the Nobel Peace Center...so every beer you drink is going to good cause! A bottle of Aass beer is a reasonable 59kr each, staff is friendly, and the lovely outdoor seating is right on the harbor for great views of the water, fortress, and people watching.

We were in Oslo over the long Easter week end and lots of places were closed but the Nobel Peace Center and Café Alfred weren't! We shared a delicious beet salad, pastry, had 2 coffees, plus I had a glass of wine and the bill was approximately $34 US--a bargain in my opinion. The café is very light and airy... More

Horrible clients reception, 40 minutes to receive the menu (that we asked for), 20 minutes for the waitress to come and ask me the order (my friends had finished to eat and drink at that time so I just asked for water). My friend got a cold gateaux aux chocolat and my other friend had to wait 20 minutes to... More

We came across this place by chance after getting finished with a sightseeing tour. We had a lovely lunch late in the day & enjoyed sitting outside overlooking the pier. Fresh organic plates and very friendly service. Limited menu but food was delicious. Food was a little more reasonably priced compared to our other dining experiences in Oslo. Loved that... More

I ate today's 6 course menu, and it is one of the best meals I have eaten at such a reasonable price. Great food and incredibly friendly waiters. I'll be back soon ....

We went to this restaurant because they had a menu themed around Norwegian produce (a fair promoting this was running at the same time). It was certainly the best meal we had in Oslo and our experience with the staff was fine. They were very friendly and welcoming. We also ate outside and enjoyed watching the street scene. The fixed... More

So, this is the place to be if you just want to be seen, not to eat. I sat on the terrace - which has a great view, by the way - and enjoyed the warm evening (by Norwegian standards). The staff were uninviting, I will not say rude, but looked like they did not care whether the customers were... More
