Description: Delicatessen Grunerlokka serves Spanish tapas made from a combination of Norwegian and Spanish ingredients. We pride ourselves on using the best ingredients available. I.E. All of our fried food is fried in Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Montabes in Jaen, Andalucia. The Montabes oils are known for their high level of antioxidants and actually adds flavor and nutrients to the food. This is an expensive way to fry food but only the best is good enough for us. All of our hams come from specially selected producers. Our main supplier of hams is Casalba in Burgos. At Casalba knowledge of how to make the finest hams, chorizo etc has been passed down for several generations. We are proud to be able to offer their world class products to our customers. We aim to create a relaxing atmosphere with great food combined with the best tintos, blancos and rosados Spain can offer.

Yes, it's small and cramped but totally worth it. We went on a Saturday night at about 7 and managed to get a seat at the bar within 15 minutes - a table would have been a longer wait. Being sat at the bar did mean we had some people behind us standing and drinking in close proximity though, so if that would annoy you, definitely wait for a table. The wine is expensive, but the food is reasonably priced (for Oslo) and the staff are friendly and welcoming. The Goats cheese in Honey dish was my favourite - very rich but delicious. Couldn't fault it and would definitely go back.

This is one of my favorite places to eat. I love that it is small, crowed place, with so good food, the best tapas I have tasted. At the place in Grünerløkka you can't call and reserve a table, you have to go there and the waiter writes your name on a list if the place is full. And it is not expensive!

Delicatessen is on top of my list, they have two other branches in Oslo (Majorstuen and Aker Brygge), but my favorite is still the first one in Sondregate in the neighborhood Grünerløkka. They serve the best tapas in Oslo, you must try the chicken wings, the meatballs, patatas bravas, the chevre cheese plate, the asparagus, the fried artichokes and the chorizo. 3 items per person is enough, but add some bread with aioli too. Be sure to bring friends, so you can taste several dishes. The place is packed in peak hours, sometimes you need to wait an hour or more for a table, but the bar is cozy while you wait.

We come here everytime we are in Oslo. Not easy to get a table on the weekends (even on thursday), but it is worth the wait. The portions are definitely small, but they are tapas, so, can't expect more. The servers are attentive and polite, always taking care of the drinks and the empty plates. There is always a sort of cool vibe that makes the place appealing and hip. Despite the tables being a little bit crammed, we always have a good time here. Try the croquetas, the patatas bravas, the goat cheese salad, the scampi... the ham was a little salty and the house wine could have been better.

Never have I had a waiter with such presence around the table. He not only refilled our drinks once or twice but six times!

The food was outstanding and melted in my mouth
