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

This is a bustling restaurant that always seems packed, which makes sense because Delicatessen serves exceptional food. Eating tapas should be a lively and social experience, and the bustle of the restaurant lends itself very well to that. The food comes quickly and the service is both friendly and warm. The menu has many choices, as a tapas menu should.... More

I have eaten here many times over the years. But as I love tapas, I try new places now and again. But I always come back. On the 16th of June I visited once more. Their patatas bravas are excellent with home made aioli. The asparagus is perfect, the chorizo excellent. And the service was attentive, knowledgeable and nice. Sensibly... More

We felt like we were in Barcelona! All tapas were amazing, the patatas fritas, the albondigas, the chicken wings, crema catalana and the choco fondant <3 They also had good variety of Spanish beers. Our waiter was really cool and very friendly. We had great time at this tapas bar.

...because they will not accept them. This makes Delicatessen ideal for last-minute change of plans, since you will simply wait by the bar for a table, just like everyone else. Story goes they even made the crown prince of Norway wait there as well. Possibly because the swedish waiting staff did not recognize him, but still.

Dining at Delicatessen was a great pleasure when it comes to the food, however the service was none existing. After being there twice for a business lunch during the last month, I would not recommend this place. At the first visit, the waitress was more interested in talking to her colleges and checking her cell phone than cleaning the table... More

Description
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.
