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.

The food is good, but service and the atmosphere is even better! The staff at Statholdergaarden makes you feel at home.

One of the most expensive restaurants in Oslo, but a great place to celebrate special occasiones. We visited the restaurant some years ago to celebrate a friends 70th birthday, and had a great variety of exiting dishes.

This is one of the best restaurant in Oslo and one of 4 (at the time of this review) Michelin restaurant. We visited the restaurant at valentines evening and enjoyed every minute of our visit. The food is outstanding and the vine is fantastic. We choose not have the vine paring as we did not have the tasting menu, but... More

Truly enjoyed the tasting menu with wine pairings! Allowed you time to savor each flavorful course and the generous wine pours that accompanied them. Seafood items were well represented given the waters of Norway, but there was a broad variety of flavors and styles. Each dish was explained after presentation and service was professional, unobtrusive unless you wanted to engage.... More

I agree with the newspaper and Michelin that this is one of the 5 best restaurants in Oslo. Set in an old building with a very nice atmosphere its perfect either for a big representation dinner (perhaps in a chambre separe) or a very nice dinner with your love. Expensive (as all good restaurants)

Famus restaurant in the center of old Oslo. This is a smal one so make sure to make your reservation in advanced. Gourmet food in the upper prize range. It is also a more informal bodega restaurant in the cellar.

We had a family dinner in the restaurant for a birthday celebration. From the start to the finish we had a great experience. The waiter told us the history of the old building, he composed excellent wine choises to our 3 course meal (wich in fact was a 6 course meal with the small in-between mouthfuls we received ) and...

This is an Oslo classic. Been around a long time, and consistently at the top. Well worth a visit for travelers seeking top-notch french cuisine. Also - the basement training restaurant is also worth a visit! Also great, and with a very different atmosphere.
