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.

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

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.
