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.

Wedding anniversary dinner

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... read 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

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.

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
