Diplomas, certificates and prizes from all over the world line the walls of this downtown haute cuisine restaurant. Owner Freddie Nielsen, one of Norway's most celebrated restaurateurs, received his education and inspiration in France - a fact which becomes evident as soon as you peruse the menu. The owners promise to seduce their guests with the finest foods; indeed, creative playfulness is a key concept. Hungry guests should try the seven-course grand menu.
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.
