    Address: Fredensborgveien 44, Oslo

    Established in 2015, but the homely vibe makes guests feel it has been there forever. Located in an area previously not known for either great food or wines, now well worth the short stroll from downtown or Grünerløkka with the Star Wine List Red Star Nektar next door. Cosy and warm atmosphere, and you can expect French bistro fare of high quality, and a well-curated wine list covering all bases of French wine. Particularly strong selection of Bourgogne, with Rhône valley also well covered. A real treat is the fact that Chez Colin is open on Sundays as well.

    A classic brasserie at the upscale Sommero hotel. The building was recently renovated (2022). Sommero is centrally located, on Oslo’s west end, with a price to match, some might say. Despite being new, Ekspedisjonshallen is already sporting an impressive wine list. Very strong on the premium end, but there are also nice wines to be had across all price points. There’s a house band frequently playing jazzy tunes. Great for weekend brunches, and open for weekday lunches as well. Do note the impressive wall fresco covering one of the walls.

    Le Benjamin Bar & Bistro is a family-owned bistro with ambiance and a hearty French menu. Have some oysters at the bar or enjoy a full menu in one of the dark leather sofas. The wine list at Le Benjamin is French, terroir driven and packed with top producers.

  4. Address: Monrads gate 1, Oslo

    Perfect for daytime wine drinking on Oslo’s east end, located in the Tøyen area and run by the experienced duo Susanne and Sverre - previously of Pjoltergeist-fame. A duo well in the know, running a wine list(s) that is best described as eclectic and open-minded – carefully matching classical wines with the more “alternative” ones. And yes, at Pillefyken you can actually choose from two wine lists. Do note that for the “pre-order list”, wines are not stored on the premises – so they need to be ordered at least 24 hours in advance. A great place for lunchtime wine drinking and enjoying lunch...

    Address: Ullevålsveien 43, Oslo

    Smalhans is a neighbourhood restaurant in the popular St.Hanshaugen area of Oslo. Perhaps the first restaurant in Oslo to offer a pure naked wine wine list, Smalhans is now well established among the locals as the place to go for for a full “Krøsus” menu, a snack in the bar, a plat du jour or a Sunday burger. The menu is varied and takes inspiration from all the corners of the world, and the wine list features some of the most well known naturalist wine makers of Europe.

    Although only established in 2014, Territoriet on Grünerløkka is already firmly established as a mainstay on the Oslo wine scene. Pre-2014, Oslo was rather dry concerning wine bars – not anymore, however, and we can thank Territoriet a lot for their trailblazing work. The bar is not very much larger than “a hole in the wall”, intimate for sure and may get busy and crowded late at night during weekends and leading up to weekends. Their by-the-glass program is massive – the widest selection in town. Contemporary and raw interiors, with wines leaning towards the more classical regions/styles, h...

    Address: Stortingsgata 16, Oslo

    A pizza gem located right off one of the main metro stations in the Oslo city center combines convenience, modern pizzas and an extensive list of fine wines (including a whole lot of Domaine Leflaive and Pingus). There is also a good selection of wines by the glass.

    Address: Waldemar Thranes gate 70, Oslo

    Tranen is a neighbourhood pizza restaurant in the Alexander Kiellands Plass area. The pizzas are recognized as the top three to five in Oslo by pretty much every pizza guide out there. And what better than to wash these slices of heaven than with some Burgundy from their extensive and ambitious wine list? The wine list not only holds top-tier Burgundy but also a fair share of natural wines – well suited for this somewhat gentrified and vibey area of town. Open on Sundays – always a great plus in a city pretty much shut down at the end of the week.

    Address: Lakkegata 55, Oslo

    In the eastern part of Oslo city center, tucked in between new office buildings, an old listed building houses Vintage Kitchen, a restaurant and wine bar. Vintage Kitchen combines the essence of a Danish “kro”, offering lavish open sandwiches daytime and a classic kitchen in the evenings. The wine list is extensive and mostly classic, but you will find some hipster wines too. Vintage Kitchen also offers a broad selection of wines by the glass.

    A small and cosy wine bar located in the recently developed Bjørvika area. Opens early-ish on Saturdays, hence a good spot for a glass from their extensive and deep wine list of more than 1,000 references. A solid by-the-glass program as well; very educative, and great for the not-so-geeky people looking to broaden their horizons and learn a thing or two. The big list is rather traditionally focused, and very strong on Bordeaux in particular (a rare find these days).
