Description: WELCOME TO STRAND RESTAURANT Strand restaurant is located just 15 min from Oslo city centre. The beautiful villa which houses the restaurant is a listed historical building surrounded by a parkland area and has magnificent views over Oslo fjord. The property was totally refurbished and opened to the public in 2010. Tom Victor Gausdal and Stian Floer have worked tirelessly together with Bærum Council to restore this beatuful building to its former glory and take it to new culinary hights. The original building has rich history and tradition dating back 2 centuries and has been used for countless weddings, christenings and other events and holds a special place in the hearts of the local residents. At present the building houses a bakery, restaurant, banquet halls and open terrace. In the immediate surroundings are a number of sculptures by Joseph Grimeland as well an antique iron pavillion. The local harbour can also be used by our guests who wish to arrive by boat. At present, Strand

Went here with a couple of friends, ordered the 5 course set menu. All in all a great tasting experience, but some disappointment with the main course prevented the 5-star rating. Very good and professional service, the wine recommendations were also good.

This is a pricey and exclusive restaurant, so one should expect high quality food. The 2 first starters were delicious (lodderogn and skatevinge), while the goat (kje) were a bit chewy. The cheese platter were maybe the best I have ever had, and the cheeses were all Norwegian.

Very good place...could be great were it not for the main course.

Had lunch here yesterday with a group of friends. Restaurant at best half full. Waiter ignores us for the first 30 min when finally arriving the were grumpy and slow. Took another 45mins to get the food with no explanation. Drinks arrived after we got the food. Bill was full ot items we hadnt eaten or drunken. Personally i think the fact that the bill had to many item as well as the wine had the wrong price was done on purpose. Will never ever go back to this place and would reccomend people that care for service, correct bills and good food to do the same. I have previously visited this restaurant for a weeding and it has obviously gone all downhill from then.

Tom Victor Gausdal, Bocuse d`argent 2005 is Chef and owner of this restaurant. THey also have their own bakery. When we arrived, we was heartly welcomed and the Chefs menu and the apprentiarships Menu was both presented by the waiter and in the menu. We was eating the Chefs menu, and a winepackage. This was a very good choice, the food was in totally good match with the wine. All the food was natural, and so was the wine. The menu was setup by regional food from whole of the country, Norway. The tastes and presentations is pure, natural and elegant.
The choises they do in food and wine combination is really impressive and surprising, in a good way. I was just smiling, and I felt like happy all through the meal.

I can heartly reccomend thid restaurant, it`s worth a visit!
