One of the finest gourmet restaurants in Oslo, located in a 17th-century building in the old city centre. The ceiling has some of the finest stucco work in Northern Europe. The chef, Bent Stiansen, won the prestigious chef championship Bocuse d'Or in 1993. Order from the à la carte menu or try the six-course menu of the day. The menu is composed of the best ingredients available at the time Stiansen uses high-quality Norwegian ingredients, coloured by European tradition. Chambre separée for 8-24 persons. In the basement you find the more informal Statholderens Krostue, which is open for both lunch and dinner.

This is a number one restaurant. The chef (and owner) is one of Norway`s best. You may find him walking between the tables chatting with the guests.

Had quite high expectations, but unfortunately they didn't deliver in relation to standing and price. Very good food but nothing really spectacular. The service was too laid back in this price range. Not sloppy but you would expect more attention.

The menu gives plenty of choice and the helpful staff are prepared to be flexible and accommodate any idiosyncrasies. So, two of our party had the substantial 4 course menu (which came with 4 amuses bouches and a palate cleanser of 'semi-freddo' yoghourt with celery, halibut and cucumber), one of us chose an entree and a main of quail and...

My wife and I got a very friendly welcome when we arrived, and we were showed into our room after our coats were taken care of. We ordered an aperitif while waiting for our 5 course tasting menu with wine. The aperitif was followed by a number of tasting samples from the kitchen, small but really tasty and they set... More

Resturant with one one Michelin star for a long time. There is no fuss - which frequently diminish the pleasure of dining at establishments of this class. The menu is just to the point - it does not come in hefty volume. The tastin menu looked tempting, but our party went for the six course menu "of the day" that... More

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary and decided to try out Statholdergaarden. The expectations were high and we did not waste time pondering over the menu. We went for "Todays menu" with 5 courses and a corresponding wine menu. Our waiter ( an apprentice ) was friendly, serviceminded and sweet to us.  And then the food. In short; it... More

It is very difficult to write a review about this restaurant, because my vocabulary doesn't have enough superlatives ! Everything from the way you are greeted, the locale , the food, the wines, the service is on such a high level that you cannot find words . When in Oslo and you want to treat yourself to a real culinary... More

This was a very nice dinner. Well deserved Michelin star. We had the 10 course menu and a wine package. Overall a good combination except from one match. The setting was old school and the service was attentive. We had a cute trainee who was a tiny stressed at times and asked us twice within 30 seconds if the food... More
