Location and contact

Strand restaurant is located just 15 min from Oslo city centre. (3 minutes from Lysaker) The beautiful villa which houses the restaurant is a listed historical building surrounded by a parkland area and has magnificent views over Oslo fjord. The property was totally refurbished and opened to the public in 2010. Tom Victor Gausdal and Stian Floer has worked tirelessly together with Bærum Council to restore this beautiful building to its former glory and take it to new culinary hights. The original building has rich history and tradition dating back 2 centuries and has been used for countless weddings, christenings and other events and holds a special place in the hearts of the local residents.

Visited this restaurant this summer and we were not disappointed at all. The food was awesome, you do pay for what you get, but the service and ambiance paired with their food is well worth it.
