Fantastic laid back, but classy restaurant. Perfect for dining with your business associates and clients. Dress code not needed, but I recommend dressing up a bit. Great food, excellent service and fantastic building! Usually fully booked, so reservations are usually required to get a table. I could eat there every weekend.

We ate upstairs, not in the basement. A classic interior with rosettes and stucco, tastefully decorated and with amongst others, period colours. We ordered a 6-course experience (and it really was) with a wine package that my fellow diners gave a resounding thumbs up! I had the juice version which can risk being a series of apple juices for each... More

In the midst of October 2015 we reserved a table for two at the highly respected Michelin-starred STATHOLDERGAARDEN. The expectations were accordingly adjusted. However did the disappointment turn out somewhat grieve, and out of pure embarrassment I haven´t been able to produce their well deserved review until a year later. We were received heartily welcome by the head sommelier and... More

The athmosphere is excellent, romantic style with flowers, chandeliers etc. The food is of course very good, even if you get food you normally dont like, you will like it here, I promise. Service is professional and you feel like a important guest. I will recomend the set menu, the food is so tasty and varied, and so beatiful to... More

A very nice experience and an excellent meal at Statholdergaarden. Service and food was far better than any other meals I have been eating in any restaurant.

The food tastes well, it's all very delicate and well decorated. I like the mushroom, it's very tasty. And the soft chocolate is very unique. I like the sauce of the bread very much, it's the best bread sauce I've tried in Norway. While considered the price, it's not that value-for-money.

Very good and accurate restaurant. The plates was been described with accuracy. The lamb and the deer were fantastic. High prices in any cases.

My wife and I stumbled across the restaurant our last night in Oslo, and based upon our meal and service, perhaps we should start stumbling more often. The food, service and atmosphere was all five stars. We had the char, the pollack, and split the appetizer of spicy seafood soup. And the licorice desert was outstanding. Pricey, but well worth...

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.

Thank sivrei

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.
