This old, white villa by the sea houses a shop and a restaurant. Hidden inside an affluent suburban living area, Strand is different from the restaurants in the inner city with its home-like cozy atmosphere and decorations, sometimes verging on kitsch. There is a view of the sea, excellent seasonal food, often from local produce. The food was tasty and... More

Good food, excellent service, good wines and a marvellous view to boat marinas. Pleasent for both couples and families.

Went there with a friend for lunch, and was pleasantly surprised by the cozy atmosphere and simplicity. the sea front view added to the already charming little restaurant. The menu choices were not vast but just right, we settled for chicken soup with mushroom and galangal and it turned out to be fantastic, their dessert were equally scrumptious ( I... More

Was here with a group of 16. Excellent food, but hard to tell when you are not ordering off the menu. Some of the food pairings were not exactly my suit, but it was all well prepared and presented. Great staff, who chose excellent wines to accompany the food. Even though I did not have a chance to experience other... More

We took the Chef's menu of 6 courses and found the food interesting and truly special. The waiter who used to work at Ekeberg was a great host and really liked the appearance of one of the chef's to explain the courses also. Paired wines were a bit hit and miss. Really lovely setting. It isn't cheap but it is... More

Just outside the border of Oslo (west). Lovely food in the restaurant and they have a smaller cafè and outdoor terrace as well. It is a coast track where you can walk from Strand to Sandvika. Or the other hand end at Strand and have a final tasty meal. Summertime maritime look, in winter when the fjord is frozen have... More

Business colleagues took me here for dinner. It is outside the city core and as we were winding our way through a lovely residential neighborhood I was wondering where we were going. It is a lovely old boathouse on the water. Great food and service and a relaxing locale. Try it if you want a quiet, upscale meal outside of... More

I have visited this restaurant four times in the past years. Last month we visited the restaurant to eat dinner. We were hoping to try the 3 course meal but we found out that we could not choose the starter. The starter was fish which was not our type. So we opted for the grilled entrecote. It was very well...

Oysters, oysters, oysters - delicious. Rib steak very tasty and well prepared. A gem for most tourists or locals enjoying marina views. Highly recommended.

Every so often you go and treat yourself to a "menu fixe" set course dinner with paired wines, and at locations like Strand you expect perfection; and they delivered. The waiter was knowledgeable about the food, the wines, the history of the wines; and contrary to other reviews on this restaurant here on tripadvisor, we found the service to be... More
