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

This 200 year old restaurant (in a 400 year old house), is an absolute charmer... And not at all pretentious. Attentive service, while not overbearing. Fine and delicious local foods delicately prepared to the highest standards without any unnecessary flavour explorations (no gummy bear flavoured soufflés here). Just very classy authentic restaurant, a must for all who visit or even... More

I was there with my boyfriend and another couple on a Thursday. The atmosphere is relaxed, although the waiters are very professional. The food is just really good food and wine pairings are perfect. Expect to pay a lot, though. We had a five-course set menu with wine package and we paid about 1500 nok per person (with a glass... More

The food is good, but service and the atmosphere is even better! The staff at Statholdergaarden makes you feel at home. They treat you as one of their own and you feel very welcome by their friendly and informal approach. The food matches their one star in the Michelin guide. I would definitely come back several times! Keep up the... More
