Cosy, down-home ambience

In early Februray I had dinner at St. Lars, a noted restaurant in mid-town Oslo that specializes in meat dishes. Price-wise it is slightly above average, but it offers real value for your money. Best dishes of the evening (I dined with two others, so my description covers what all 3 of us ate) were... read more

After a period with mixed cru and quality lower than expected St Lars is fore sure back in business with Anders Lundby and his team working hard both on kitchen and in the restaurant just for YOU with attention to EACH guest with a quality for sure meeting my expectations. The understanding of Beer and Wine as a combination to... More

I went to this restaurant with a friend of mine. We are both food enthusiast, and my friend is a wine expert. Both of us have wanted to go to this restaurant since it opened, and finally it happened and we had some expectation to this restaurant. The service was excellent and impeccable! Our main waiter, Anders, had very good... More

Came to this rustic grill restaurant with family to celebrate my birthday. A very positive review in Aftenposten, 26 out of 30 points, gave the impression that after a slack period the kitchen had now reached former excellence. That was not what we experienced. We were 4 people who chose their menu no 1 which consisted of meagre lobster with... More

The atmosphere in this quite small restaurant is nice and cosy, with lots and lots of pictures related to food, books, empty crystal bottles, dark interior and a huge mirror with the text; "Butter is thicker than blood." And you do get generous amounts of butter in your food at St. Lars. We had grilled crayfish with herb butter, côte... More

Rustic food and a friendly, casual and relaxed athmosphere. They arranged a special dinner for our group of 15 people in a generous and professional way. I can recommend them.

I've heard a lot of good things about St Lars, and took my family there Saturday the fourth. Summed up: The waiter was nice and gave us great wine advices to match our food. The party of five had two pieces of entrecote and three burgers. The entrecote was satisfying, but not exceptional. The three burgers tasted pure salt, and... More

Out for a meal with a business acquantance and his wife. Came to nearly empty restaurant (worrying!), but we soon relaxed. A waitress who knew what she was on about, later the chef came out to discuss the meal (which was delicious). Great wines..

I've eaten here a few times before, and always enjoyed the experience, particularly the grilled meat . This time the chef recommended the burger - and now I do as well. As someone who's lived in both London and the US I've eaten some of the better burgers in the world, and while this burger was not quite on the... More

I have visited St. Lars a number of times and was never disappointed. The food is simple, non pretentious grill (generous portions), with a lot of seasonal products with a scandinavian flair. In early autumn go for the chanterelle mushroom burger - the flavour and scent is simply to die for. The restaurant has an extensive wine list, and serve... More
