Location and contact

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.

We enjoyed a full tasting menu with wine-paring and it was an interesting experience. One of our starters contained whale with an Asian flare but the whale meat was ‘killed’ with all the different flavors ( mango, coriander, ginger, ..etc.), so it could have been...More

We have visited Michelin star restaurants all over the world. This is right up there with the best of them in every way possible. The food was outrageously good, as was the service and the main dining room. Expensive but real quality never comes cheap.

Absolutely outstanding and totally deserving the one Michelin star that it has earned. The Norwegian Langoustine is an absolute must - and do the degustation menu if you can!

This was not quite the amazing experience TripAdvisor reviews led me to believe it would be. We ate at the downstairs restaurant Mat & Vinkjeller due to wanting an ala carte menu (10 courses being too much). Service wasn't up to a four-or-five star experience....More

This place has stunning food, from taste to presentation. It’s upscale, but still manages - without compromising the food - to stay grounded and accessible. The food has some amazing flavor combinations and the produce seems top notch. They don’t have a menu as long...More
