We’ve eaten here on numerous occasions and have never been disappointed by either the food or the service. The seafood is outstanding and the accompanying vegetables are fresh and beautifully prepared. Deserts are also excellent. Great location as well.

Situated below the old fortress in Oslo harbour, Solsiden has one of the best locations by the sea, with amazing views of the water and facing west, sunshine as long as possible in Oslo. The food is great, and it is heaven to sit with...More

We got a last minute cancellation to this fabulous restaurant and although we were worried about the price I thought it was worth it. The shell fish platter for two was delicious but defeated us - it was just too much - and the wine...More

I haven't been here in a couple of years, and the food was good but definitely not what I expected. A piece of my halibut was raw and hard to chew and I asked the waitress. But she came back saying that not all parts...More

I have been here every summer the last 4-5 years. Food is really good, always have the seafood share platter! But I also feel that they should develop it just a little. And maybe also use a little more focus when preparing. The lobster needs...More

On of the better seafood places to be is Solsiden. Situated in the harbour area of Oslo it is a very busy and popular restaurant. We had no reservation, but were early. But if you want to have dinner at 8, then better make reservations!...More

Just as a starting point I have to say that I’m allergic to seafood - so I was only interested in having a good Norwegian fish. I stated that fact upon my arrival and it was fully taken into consideration with no errors. As a...More

With only being open during late spring, summer and early autum, this is one of Oslo’s best sea food restaurants. And the location is magnificent - for me perhaps the best in Oslo. Great menu, a big wine list, however, I normally take the house...More

Solsiden restaurant is only open during the summer season. 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 the Oslo Fjord through the windows and open sliding doors. Here Oslo harbor is like a marine painting that changes from minute to minute. Welcome and Bon Appetit!
