My number one in Oslo.

Statholdergaarden never disappoints its guests. The food (and wine selection) is excellent and they have the most friendly and professional staff in town.

We had the seven dish menu, along with the perfectly matched wine package. An absolutely stunning food experience. All dishes (with maybe one exception), including the amuse-bouches that pops up in between, were made to perfection with a sublime blend of different taste and texture. Some dishes were creative, some were classsics. Most dishes were based on Norwegian rawmaterials like... More

We were here for dinner on our trip in Oslo last night. We preordered the 4 course meal for our party of 10. The food was absolutely superb! We were underdressed due to being on tour and walking in town all day. But the staff was so pleasant with no snobbish attitude, just made our dining experience even more enjoyable.... More

This beautiful traditional Norwegian restaurant, located in the heart of Oslo. This is a wonderful location for a special occasion or a romantic meal. The food is exceptional, the service outstanding. One note, when ordering a bottle of red wine, get it decanted. The decanters are unusual and stunning.

This restaurant is spectacular. Have got few dining rooms interconnected with antiques from the 19 century. The service is excellent with a knowledgeable sommelier able to offer the best wines with our meal. The food was delightful (we hoped for the set menu). A class experience that only few can afford to have.

We got a quiet table in the middle of the restaurant, which was great. The place is built around a string of connected rooms, all of which offer great art on the walls and as much privacy as you would want for a private dinner. Service was exquisite, the food and drink the same and it made a memorable wedding... More

My husband invited me to an evening out... 5 course meal with matching wines. The hostess was somewhat surprised to see us even though we had made a reservation. We were seated upstairs, in a romantic room dated around 1900. The sommelier was personal, friendly and very nice, and she knew her wine. She explained the wine and also how... More
