Description: 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 restaurant is exquisite! We had the 10 courses menu and were blown away by the food. It included 3 starters, 2 fish dishes, 2 meat dishes, 1 cheese plate and 2 desserts. Not to mention the greetings from the kitchen that were served in between. Service was excellent and also casual and relaxed which is great, since it's often... More

The service is impeccable! The wine was way over the top! Fantastic wine, and to a very affordable price (specially with Norwegian prices in mind). The food was good, not great. Especially with the star in mind. Please set of time to visit Bent Stiansens heart of food!

We had a business dinner here. This is a classic fine dining restaurant, do not expect a modern design. We had the 5 courses and a bottle of wine. There is variety in wine and service meets Michelins expectation. Overall a good experience

We had a two person romantic dinner in this restaurant, which is located in an old mansion with the dining areas set in different rooms. The atmosphere was old world charm, with high ceiling, drapery and crystal chandeliers, all done in good taste. As a Michelin star restaurant, the menu was impressively diverse and flexible. Unlike most Michelin that focuses... More

This one star michelin restaurant is my favourite restaurant in Oslo. I had the tasting menu (5 courses NOK 1135), and everything was fantastic. It was possible for me to change the main course in the menu from lamb to turbot at no additional cost. Wine prices are fair, and service is friendly and attentive.

This gourmet restaurant has a classic atmosphere that adds up perfectly with the excellent courses they serve. Statholdergaardens good service, exciting food experiences and large wine cellar makes this one of the top restaurants in the country.

Me and my wife went there to celebrate our anniversary and it couldn't have been more perfect! Our five course meal was a rainbow of flavours and very tasty. You could tell the chef was using the best and freshest ingredients to deliver this beautiful dinner. The service was really good too. Our waiter was very knowledgable, friendly and efficient....

First time to eat here, it was a couples romantic dinner. The food was great but the service was even better as the 3 hour meal seemed to go by quickly. We had 7:30 reservations and was one of the first groups to be seated. Classic Restaurant not what I would call modern. Use of fresh ingredients and some inventive... More

We enjoyed the 5-course dinner menu which was extremely delicious. The ingredients stood for themselves which made us feel every note of the flavour. Beside the great meal, the staff was very helpful and friendly. All-in-all a wonderful gastronomic experience!
