The Best Restaurants in Oslo, Norway

The StarTripper Journal presents the best places to dine in Oslo, both International gourmet and good Norwegian choices.
Our Team to Oslo are professional travelers.

Oslo, the gateway to Scandinavia, the capital and largest city in Norway, a small modern city, population 0,6 mill, a compact city centre along the main street Karl Johan gate and the world capital of ski sports.

Oslo has a special combination of city life and easy access to the great outdoors.

The downtown waterfront area is reborn as a neighbourhood blending museums, restaurants, the new Opera House and chic urban living.

Other top attractions includes the Munch Museum, Vigelandsparken Sculpture Park, Holmenkollen Ski Jump, the Viking Ship Museum and the latest attraction, the Ekebergparken Sculpture Park, which offer 63 acres of installations by international artists and a panoramic view of the city.

Currency is Norvegian Kroner (NOK).

The StarTripper Journal Recommends these Restaurants:
Statholdergaarden Statholdergaarden is a fine old building at the crossroads of Rådhusgate/Kirkegate in Kvadraturen, the heart of Oslo. The ceiling is decorated with Northern Europe's most impressive plasterwork ceiling.

Statholdergaarden is Chef Bent Stiansen's gourmet restaurant. In 1993, Stiansen became the world master of the culinary contest, Bocuse d`Or. He and his team have developed Statholdergaarden into one of Oslo's and Norway's best restaurants.

Each day Bent Stiansen and chef Torbjørn Forster create a six-course gourmet menu full of surprises. The menu varies according to the time of the year using Norwegian produce when it is at its best.

Very professional service, excellent cooking.

Rådhusgate 11
Feinschmecker Located at Frogner, an uptown residential area, classical restaurant, small lounge, semi-open kitchen, plenty of wood, warm fabrics and a welcoming atmosphere.

Chef Lars Erik Underthun presents well-presented classic dishes based on the best French tradition and the finest Norwegian ingredients.

We really enjoyed the Chefs Menu with glazed breast of Duck with red onion compote and schezuan as main.

Dining at Feinschmecker is truly an unique experience, with exquisite world-class food, intimate setting and friendly knowledgeable serving staff.

Excellent cooking !

Balchens gate 5
hos Thea Located a short drive from the city centre, in the quiet residential Skillebekk-area you will find this little restaurant "hos Thea". An elegant, but warm and family-like place.

With background from legendary restaurants Chef Sergio bought a 100 year old butcher’s shop and created a small restaurant. His philosophy was simple: "a gourmet experience without expensive factors".

The main elements are a dining room with open kitchen, Sergio himself behind the pots, a small but excellent menu he himself has created and "a lot of love for the food".

On his menu he presents dishes like vichyssoise with lobster and truffle and Swedish fallow deer tenderloin with cherry sauce and sautéed golden chanterelles. We especially loved the Pluma of Iberico pork with sweet and sour pepper sauce and oven baked pimientos.

As a special touch the owner also exhibits some of his own favourite artworks.

Very warm and service minded staff. Excellent cooking.

Gables gate 11
Brasserie Hansken Centrally located in the City Centre in an old-town pedestrianised street, a delightfully traditional brasserie, with various charming dining areas and a fantastic summer terrace.

Classical cooking follows the seasons and mixes French and Scandinavian influences; the seasonal ingredients are top quality.

Try the wild turbot with cauliflower crudité, beets and horseradish, and the saddle of dear with cep, juniper berries and grilled heart. We loved both dishes.

Very serviceminded staff. Cuisine modern, excellent cooking.
