One of Oslo's most popular meeting places, Theatercaféen is a magnet for people involved in the worlds of culture and finance. This culinary institution, situated on the ground floor of Hotel Continental, is the place to see and be seen in Oslo. Built in 1900, the Art Nouveau, Viennese-style café is one of only a few such establishments left in northern Europe. Do not leave without trying the pastry chef's legendary confections.
Restaurant Eik Annen Etage in the Hotel Continental is an excellent place to enjoy sumptuous International cuisine. The restaurant is unique in its own way as it has a new menu to serve you every week. The cuisine is definitely international but is given a local touch with typical Norwegian ingredients. Dining at Annen Etage is made even more exciting with the stunningly contemporary and innovative interiors!
This gourmet restaurant, located in the heart of Oslo's oldest neighborhood, is run by award-winning chef Bent Stiansen. A varied menu is available, compiled from the freshest and best available ingredients. The beautiful and stylistic 18th-century décor just adds to the restaurant's ambiance. The restaurant consists of five small rooms with an intimate atmosphere. The ceiling contains some of the finest stucco work in northern Europe. Guests must be suitably dressed (jacket and tie for men).
Those who appreciate great food should look no further. Guests dine in the light of 300 candles, the only source of light in this intimate basement restaurant, aptly named The Convent. The dining room is located in a spacious cellar with a vaulted brick ceiling. The interior has been specially designed to create the perfect romantic atmosphere and the walls are adorned with religious icons and paintings. The menu, written on monastic scrolls and covered with hand-woven fabric, offers a variety of meat and fish dishes as well as a daily vegetarian dish. An aperitif in front of the fireplace should get you in the right mood before you sit down.
A gem in Oslo's dining scene, SüdØst brings an exceptional Asian inspired menu in a setting that puts most restaurants in Grünerløkka to shame. Housed in a historic building, with high vaulted ceilings, fireplaces and an outdoor terrace that overlooks the Aker river, this restaurant oozes with a sublime rustic charm. The menu borrows South East Asian culinary influences to bring out eclectic combinations like Grilled Rack of Lamb with Massaman, Sirloin Pasta and Asian Carpaccio. Besides the a la carte menu, there is choice of five dish set menus. The desserts deserve a mention and to say that the experience would be incomplete without trying the 'Tilslørte asiatiske bondepiker' should be enough.
Located on the island of Lille Herbern, a short ferry-ride away from Oslo, Lille Herbern, the restaurant, opened in 1929, is considered one of the oldest restaurants in the city. Offering a number of activities for quality time together, the island itself is a welcome respite for people harrowed by city stress. Added to that, the factor of good food makes this experience absolutely wonderful. Needless to say, any private or corporate events arranged here will be unforgettable. The restaurant menu, emphasizing on seafood, consists of season-based cuisine. Only open during summers, the restaurant is almost always pre-booked; hence, reservations are advisable. Whether it is the island activities, the restaurant atmosphere or the food, visiting Lille Herbern once will leave you begging for more.
