Restaurants in Oslo

Fresh seafood abounds in Oslo, while traditional Norwegian meats like reindeer are also found on specialist menus. The city has a few Michelin-starred restaurants like the renowned Bagatelle, but there are less pricey options available – mostly in the city centre and Aker Brygge. For a snack, try bright red pølser hot dogs, a local favourite. Norwegians normally eat dinner at around 5pm, but all restaurants open until late evening. Tips of 5-10% are normal.

  1. 1. Restaurant Julius Fritzner - Top-end

    Show more

    When Roald Amundsen returned to Oslo after his successful expedition to the South Pole in 1912, he was honored with a banquet here. One floor above street level, in Norway's most prestigious hotel, the venue is conservative, with a battalion of impeccably trained waiters who maintain their humor and personal touch despite the sophisticated setting. The dishes, all made with the finest Scandinavian ingredients, change with the season and the chef's inspiration.
