A tapas restaurant which are quite expensive and small. You need to order a lot here to become full and you will leave with an empty wallet. The atmosphere and staff are great.

We came here a bit ahead of the rest of the party and my wife was a bit anxious that we would not get a table I we did not get in and sit right away, but the waiter said we would get a table when the rest of the gang arrived. We did get a table, and throughout the... More

The food (tapas) is excellent and perfect for sharing with one or more people. The staff are friendly, but very slow when it comes to paying attention, bringing food, noticing customers etc. They need to improve on the service as it pulls down an otherwise good restaurant.

Always a treat to visit Delicatessen. It feels like you are in Spain and tasty tapas. We had the daily specials like Vitello tonnato and baby back ribs which was fantastic. Just missing out some more tapas dishes from the ocean (my personal taste) Thanks

This was the first time visiting a tapas-style restaurant and now we are spoiled forever! The waiter was extremely helpful and when he realized we were unsure what to choose, offered to make several selections for us. I would normally never let the waiter choose my meal, but in this case, it was amazing! We ended up with several selections,... More

I'd go as far to say the food was the best tapas I've ever had. Four of us ordered around 12 dishes and every single one was delicious. The staff were quite good. One chap was bit disinterested, but the other staff made up for his lack of enthusiasm. Oslo isn't cheap, so 12 tapas plus 3 bottles of wine... More

The food is good, but the staff is not friendly nor professional. E.g. the place was half empty, we were 4 people and we were seated at a really tiny table. We asked several times if we could have two tables since there were plenty available but the waiter kept referring to a rule that 4 people could only have... More

The atmosphere is phenomenal. I went solo and sat in front of a window: beautiful view. The waitress was very helpful and she, or anyone else, did not made me feel uncomfortable for being alone. She explained the menu and the concept of the restaurant. She gave me suggestions and told me how big were the portions. Also, she gave... More

Delicatessen Grunerlokka serves Spanish tapas made from a combination of Norwegian and Spanish ingredients. We pride ourselves on using the best ingredients available.

I.E. All of our fried food is fried in Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Montabes in Jaen, Andalucia. The Montabes oils are known for their high level of antioxidants and actually adds flavor and nutrients to the food. This is an expensive way to fry food but only the best is good enough for us.

All of our hams come from specially selected producers. Our main supplier of hams is Casalba in Burgos. At Casalba knowledge of how to make the finest hams, chorizo etc has been passed down for several generations. We are proud to be able to offer their world class products to our customers.

We aim to create a relaxing atmosphere with great food combined with the best tintos, blancos and rosados Spain can offer.
