Description: Lofoten is an elegant, yet cosy and relaxed seafood restaurant on the edge of Aker Brygge with an exquisite maritime menu, good beverages and excellent service. Lofoten pride themselves in serving the best fish and seafood the sea has to offer. The restaurant's philosophy is to serve rustic food that not only looks good, but also tempts the palate and satisfies one's hunger. The menu changes 7-8 times a year and reflects each season's specialities. January-March: Steamed cod with liver and roe, flown in from Lofoten! April-September: Summer menu, 200 seats outside with a great view of the Oslo Fjord. October-December: The Norwegian speciality lutefisk (cod treated with lye).

Had lunch here last week and ordered the 3 course special menu of the day. The crab soup was amazing, one of those dishes that gourmands say has many levels of taste. Lovely baby shrimp in it as well. Followed by an interesting ling cod and vanilla panna cotta with fresh lemon sorbet and raspberries. And the folks strolling by made for excellent entertainment as well. It helps if you don't have the exchange rate for kroners memorized so that the sticker shock doesn't hit until the credit card bill comes.

The first three restaurants we tried were closed for summer holidays, this being late July. So we headed over to the marina. I recognized the name from a guidebook. We were not disappointed. The very reasonable price of the wine made up for the higher Oslo prices. The fish soup was delicious too. We went on our first night and would go again.

Went here for lunch on a sunny summer day and watched the strollers on the quai. This supposed to be a place for great fresh fish. For some reason it was deserted. To be safe we ordered fish soup and the special of the day. The soup was OK but the fish of the day was bland and uninteresting. Maybe the white table clothes and nice setting raised our expectations. Perfectly pleasant but nothing special.

I wanted to my girlfriend out for a nice dinner as it was her 30th b'day. We tried to book into Solsiden but unfortunately it was fully booked all week, so we went for Lofoten restaurant as i was determined to share a skaldyrsfatt (seafood platter) with her. As we arrived we were immediately taken to our table and offered a welcome drink. We were then described the specials and given some time to look over the wine list. When the waiter came back, he had already brought some bread with him and after hearing what we wanted to order he made some solid recommendations on wine to drink with the food. The seafood platter was fantastic, even though it was a little bit short on oysters and king crab. The waiter was one of the most attentive we have had in eating at Oslo restaurants and the food and wine also matched that standard. Pleasantly suprised after reading a few previous reviews that this was more of a "tourist" restauarant.

We were here for Christmas dinner with my company.
The fish dishes were moderate, dessert was good enough but the lack of tasty tee was very disappointing for me. I don't want to go back definitely.
