I love food and wine, and I enjoy trying new restaurants, often by consulting the Restaurant Guide of Aftenposten and the Michelin Guide. In four years in Oslo, several people have asked for my selection of restaurants in town, so here it is.

My top three restaurants:

  • Lokk: Nordic menu with a modern twist in an informal environment
  • Kolonihagen: Nordic menu of organic products in a refurbished old stable
  • Tjuvholmen Sjømagasin: Nordic fish in a modern environment

My other favourite restaurants:

Last but not least, my favourite coffee bar:

  • Tim Wendelboe: Internationally recognised coffee roastery and espresso bar—probably the best coffee in Norway

As you may have noticed, I have not included any Italian restaurant in my selection. This is because the best Italian restaurant in Oslo is my place, of course 🙂
