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.

Elegant, Welcoming, Delicious

Well worth its Michelin star, this fine old restaurant welcomes you into a spacious dining room in a historic mansion. The staff made us feel like honored guests. The food, though not innovative, was excellently prepared and presented. Go and experience elegant Oslo.

We ate yesterday at Statholdergaarden for celebrating 2 saint's days. It was difficult to urge my father to book here. As french people, who love eating in Michelin Restaurants, we were expecting a lot of this dinner which was the end of our marvelous vacations in Norway. Waiters were perfect and flexible. We have been warned that the Chief hadn't... More

There is so much to like about Statholdergaarden—we will revisit every time we come to Norway. When I choose to eat at a restaurant like this, I’m looking for the whole package; a great experience to go along with incredible food. And Statholdergaarden delivers—wonderful ambience, and an experienced staff who understand the food and wine menus in detail. We both... More

A place to visit if you are in Oslo and would like to try some of Norway's finest food. I have been to Statholdergaarden several times, the food and service is far above the Michelin rating. The waiters really now their restaurant and the selection of food and wine they serve. Each dish you get served is a piece of... More

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

Statholdergaarden offers an excellent food experience in historically and formal surroundings. Put on your best suit or dress, and treat yourself for one evening.
