At the upper end of quality and price but did not disappoint. It was our last night in Oslo and I wanted to treat my wife to an elegant meal. Food, wine, ambience and service were all top class.

This restaurant is one of the absolute best in Norway. They really know what they are doing - food, service, wine, interior, yes....they have it all. This is a perfect place for those special evenings, romantically or with bigger groups as well. Expensive but worth every penny.

We have been at Statholdergaarden several times, and will definitely come back. The atmosphere is perfect for both romantic dinners, celebrations and business dinners. The food is perfection and the staff is friendly and professional.

He who must be obeyed wanted to celebrate and because Nedre Foss burnt down, thought we should just push the boat out. Everything about this restaurant can only be described as perfect. We decided to have the taste with wine pairing menu which took us 5-6 hrs. I remember we started at 6:30pm and were absolutely the last to leave... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by our hotel for our last evening in Oslo. There actually are two restaurants in the building, owned by the same proprietor but upstairs is fine formal dining in well appointed and beautiful classic rooms, and downstairs is a more casual atmosphere with a less expensive menu (see other's reviews for Statholderens Mat &...

An amazing experience. Nothing about the food or the service could be improved any further. I have never eaten rare meat in my life until at this establishment; really delicious. Highly recommended.

One of the finest gourmet restaurants in Oslo, located in a 17th-century building in the old city centre. The ceiling has some of the finest stucco work in Northern Europe. The chef, Bent Stiansen, won the prestigious chef championship Bocuse d'Or in 1993. Order from the à la carte menu or try the six-course menu of the day. The menu is composed of the best ingredients available at the time Stiansen uses high-quality Norwegian ingredients, coloured by European tradition. Chambre separée for 8-24 persons. In the basement you find the more informal Statholderens Krostue, which is open for both lunch and dinner.
