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).

The restaurant is on the seaside, with view on the harbour.
Service is excellent.
Good fish and good choice from the menu.
As with all things: good location, good food and good service in a very nice restaurant, it tends to be expensive.
This place is ideal for a business dinner with an important customer.
Or for a family occasion.
I had seafood and whale (a first for me).
I can recommend if you are prepared to pay the price.

We are getting used to high Norwegian prices after a week in country. Our tab for two dinners and two drinks was $314 US.
Food and service were excellent in this modern decor place on the scenic waterfront. We had the prix fixe 4 course seafood dinner and it was excellent in presentation and flavor. We made reservations on line but that wasn't really necessary because there were lots of empty tables.
We would recommend and come here again but wish their prices were 30% less.

One of my favourates in Oslo. Try their fishsoup and the Norwegian boiled lobster. Good service. Only inconvenience, at night a little bit too dark....

This was a fabulous seafood restaurant. The location is great, you are right along the harbor area, great for people watching. The food was beautifully prepared, nice portion size. We ordered halibut that was delicious, and a pan of potatoes for the table. My husband had the banana cake for dessert, and he loved it.

Quality of cooking was not up to the price range this restaurant was charging. Plenty of restaurants nearby with food cooked as well at half the price. Drink prices were shocking even by comparison with nearby restaurants which were high. Menu choices very restricted compared with menu displayed outside. Can't see why Michelin was quoted on the door as I have eaten in Michelin rated restaurants and this did not compare in the slightest. Very disappointing
