Engebret Café is the oldest restaurant in Oslo originating from the 1700's. We chose this restaurant for the special occasion motivated by its old-fashioned decoration, artistic aura, and a traditional Norwegian cuisine of the highest quality. The restaurant is situated on the quiet nice square in the heart of old Oslo. There are many paintings on the walls of the restaurant's hall demonstrating the famous writers, artists and actors who visited this café. The restaurant offers traditional meat and fish courses however the vegetarian dishes are also available. Besides veal and beef you can taste the dishes cooked from reindeer and whale served with the delicious sauces. You are also welcome to order the fish and seafood dishes cooked by traditional Norwegian receipts. As to the starters do not miss “A taste of northern Norway” with gratinated king crab, caviar, smoked fillets of whale, salmon tartar, slices of reindeer meat, and cod tongues. It is an opportunity to taste the most famous gourmet items all-in-one. The waiters were kind, the service was rather fast. We were a bit disappointed when the house special dessert – Engebert’s cream pudding – was not available but the other desserts were also good. The prices are high as it is usual in Norway and higher than in the most similar places in Oslo but if you wish to feel an atmosphere of old Oslo and enjoy the delicious food it is the place to visit. I shall certainly recommend Engebret Café to my friends.
