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.

A Thursday night, two friends out for dinner, booking on line the day before, this was a fabulous fine dining experience. The dining room was an old-fashioned but quite beautiful space with a wonderfully ornate ceiling. The chef's menu (can change daily) listed six dishes, and one could subtract one or two to reduce price and scope. We had five... More

The simplicity of the menu and the way the local Norwegian food are coocked with passion are amazing. The prices are average, but the food are not. Highlight of my weekend trip to Oslo.

No doubt, the overall best restaurant in Oslo. Great atmosphere, great service and last but not least great food. Good to see a restaurant of this stature only having one seating per night. Makes the experience even more enjoyable.

We went for a three course dinner. For starters we had beetroot and scallop, main arctic char and dessert chokerberry. The cost came to around 100 Kr. Starter was delicious. Main felt a bit too much like shashimi (my friend had the monk fish which was over cooked). Dessert was disappointing, the yoghurt panna cotta lacked any taste. Good service.... More

I just agree with everyone else. Fantastic experience, impeccable service, and we felt so very welcome. Not snobby or pretentious. The 6 course tasting menu were things you may not chose normally, but that's half the fun. Everything tasted amazing, and I look forward to going again when the menu changes. Almost 4 hours past so quickly, my husband said... More

Statholdergaarden is without a doubt the best restaurant we have visited in Norway. The old historic building is very charming and the food is of the high standard that you would expect at a restaurant with a Michelin star. The huge difference from other Michelin restaurants is the way our children of 5 and 9 years were treated. They had... More

The food here is really good. We had the 6 course tasting menu with a bottle of champagne for starters and a bottle of red for main courses and cheese. All the dishes were excellent with lots of interesting flavours. The only course we all agreed was a bit bland was the fish. The waiters were polite and efficient, if... More

Statholdergaarden is a classy Michelin one-star restaurant in a lovely old building. In Norway, dining in high-end restaurants is less formall than in most of europe. There is no formal dress-code (as far as I know), but you should dress at least semi-casual. Compared to the other Michelin restaurants in Oslo, Statholdergaarden is a bit more traditional. Its housed in... More

I was in the "Mat&Vinkjeller" for a 10 course dinner together with some colleagues. The food was really great. 3 out of the 10 courses were not my taste but the quality of the food was excellent and it was just fun to try so many different dishes. The menue was explained to us before every dish and there was... More
