A beautiful location, close to the sea; just outside Oslo. We had a 3 course dinner- Beautifuly presentation, and every dish tasted fantastic. The bread was marvelous. We will recomend Strand restaurant to everyone.

We were so disappointed! Out for a walk this morning, we popped in to the Strand Restaurant for a light lunch and chose open-face sandwiches and coffee in the Bistro. From the restaurant menu, it appeared we could have had much the same food at a table with a view to the fjord, at Nok 40,- extra per person. As... More

Coming from an Interior background I found this a hidden gem. Just outside Oslo and by the seaside. Nice staff and great food. Tried the mini chef menu which is a great idea of apprentices putting together their own menu. Tasty scallops, buttery braised oxcheeks and a divine chocolate surprise.

After a nice lunch visit at Strand some years ago, expectations were high for a company dinner. However, arriving at the restaurant there were nobody to welcome and point you in the direction of wardrobe and where our party was located. First course was good, but easy forgotten. Main course was ducks breast which was party overdone and not very... More

We chose the apprentice set menu. The entré was good, tthough the waiter changed from cod to trout in her explanations. It should be easy to know the difference. The main had two kinds of meat, one good one poor. The potato stuffing a bit tasteless. We weren't offered any wine ahead of the serving and had to remind and... More

The restaurant is located in pristine, lush green, surroundings; with a view overlooking a harbor and the sea. On the inside it's just as fabulous, where white minimal meets country chic. You forget that you were in the heart of the city just a few moments and a taxi ride ago. Truly amazing. My date and I ate the chef... More

I have had many meals in this restaurant for the last years, and it has never disappointed me. Yesterday I had mussels, and it was like the best from Brussels! I recommend it!
