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!

Me and my girlfriend went to Statholdergaarden for her birthday. I wanted something special for the occasion and as a Michelin starred restaurant, expectations were high. We were seated in a small room with 3 other tables around us so not much intimacy. Quite many staff members to great us, aperitif was taken quickly and we ordered the tasting menu... More

I had a wonderful business dinner there. The food quality is very high, fresh raw materials and creative cuisine (traditional norwegian food reinvented in modern way). Don't expect to eat a lot, but extremely well. The wine selection is also interesting. Prices are high, but in line with what's offered.
