Location and contact

This season, the 26th in the series, starts May 2nd and ends on September 14th. We now welcome bookings by e-mail. After the Easter holidays we can also be contacted by phone. Solsiden Restaurant is a seafood restaurant where we use only the best raw materials the coast has to offer. Besides a variety of different fish we always have "Plateau de Fruits de Mer" on the menu. This is our specialty consisting of lobster, clams, crabs, mussels, shrimp, crayfish (when they are available fresh) and king crab. The dishes can be accompanied by one of the over 250 wines from our wine menu. Solsiden Restaurant is located on Akershusstranda right below Akershus Fortress. Enjoy the magnificent sunset over

Great fish restaurant. Huge place. We were with a large group. Food is very good. Location at the harbor. Staff could smile a bit more. We were there at the last night before they close for fall and winter.

We came here as a family and had a very enjoyable meal looking over the harbour. The restaurant staff were very helpful and made good wine choices. The kids loved their mussels and bread! We will definitely return next time we are in Oslo

Oslo has become a destination capital for food, and this restaurant is one reason why. Soldsiden or Sunside restaurant specializes in seafood and provides yummy dishes in which the fish melts in your mouth. The staff are knowledgeable and friendly and the wine was good.

Our hotel recommended Solsiden. It was on the harbor with a beautiful view of the water. It was a warm night, so all the windows were wide open. The restaurant was full on a Saturday night, as many walk-ins were turned away at the door....More
