Norway Travel Planner by Tom Brosnahan   Restaurants in Oslo, Norway


I'm not sure you'll find many world's-top-dining places in Oslo, but you'll eat well.

Food prices are moderate to expensive; wine prices are high.

The favorite lunch-and-dinner dining area is undoubtedly Aker Brygge, the redeveloped waterfront area down by the harbor, more or less behind the Nobel Peace Prize Museum.

Wander along the boardwalk any evening and you'll pass a variety of dining-places, from see-and-be-seen glass-of-wine places through steak and spaghetti places to understated-elegance restaurants with bonne présentation of the latest trendy cuisine.

For café-sitting, look to Karl Johans Gate between the Stortinget and the Royal Palace, centered on the Grand Café of the Grand Hotel. The Grand Café is the ultimate upscale place for people-watching, but there are other choices, all the way to TGI Friday's, where the bikers congregate, crowding the street in front with their Harleys.

For a quick—and cheap—bite, snatch a pølse (hot dog, sausage), sandwich, wrap or take-away plate from one of the many convenience shops: Deli de Luca, 7-Eleven or Narvesen.
