I had an amazing day island hopping in the fjord! I’d heard about the cafe at Gresshelmen from a server at Mathallen and had to check it out. Clouds were threatening when the ferry dropped me off. The short hike through the forest up to...More

This is more a cafe than a restaurant. Prices are very reasonable for Norway, and it is a cool place to visit if you want a taste of nature a 10 min. boat ride from downtown Oslo. You can sit indoors or outdoors and eat,...More

We stopped at Gressholmen for a quick lunch. We took the salmon and the chicken breast. Very nice meal for a small restaurant on a tiny island. Food was fresh and tasty.

Really worth visiting, only 10 minutes from Aker Brygge. Take the boat from the harbour bus terminal, fare is 35 NOK each way.

We took the ferry over on recommendation from a Norwegian friend. The trip itself is nice (and free with the Oslo pass) and the wooded walk to the restaurant a pleasant respite from the city. You order at the counter, menu is limited, bathroom is...More

The island is really nice and it’s only 15 minutes from Oslo by boat but the food is very poor and price extremely high 10€ for a glass off with vin ? My recommendations take with you food and drinks and avoid Gressholmen Kro .
