Grefsenkollen restaurant is located in a building from 1926 with a fantastic view over Oslo. The restaurant is open for both lunch and dinner (Tuesday - Sunday), but with very different menus. For lunch we are open from 12pm and you can choose between a 1-3 course lunch, a delicious soup of the day or Caesar salat. For dinner we serve a 3-course and a 5-course gourmet meal made from the best ingredients available. Table bookings mandatory. Grefsenkollen also has several meeting rooms and is available for everything from small, intimate meetings to big conferences. We also host all kinds of private parties like weddings and birthday parties.
