Oslo Restaurant Reviews
Many Oslo chefs have developed menus based on classic Norwegian recipes but with exciting variations, like Asian or Mediterranean cooking styles and ingredients. You may read about "New Scandinavian" cuisine on some menus—a culinary style that combines seafood and game from Scandinavia with spices and sauces from any other country.
Spend at least one sunny summer afternoon harborside at Aker Brygge eating in one of the many seafood restaurants and watching the world go by. Or buy steamed shrimp off the nearby docked fishing boats and plan a picnic in the Oslo fjords or Vigeland or another of the city's parks. Note that some restaurants close for a week around Easter, in July, and during the Christmas holiday season. Some restaurants are also closed on Sunday. Like more and more cities worldwide, smoking in indoor public spaces isn't allowed, but terraces and other outdoor spaces are alright; aim for upwind if you're sensitive to smoke (or downwind to be polite if you're a smoker yourself).
