    Statholdergaarden is a classic fine dining restaurant in the Oslo city center. High ceilings, beautiful flower decorations and elegant chandeliers set a warm scene for a gastronomic experience with roots in the French kitchen. The wine cellar has around 500 labels, going deep into the most classical areas. While Statholdergaarden’s wine list is fine wine oriented, there are surprising elements when it is studied more closely. If you cannot manage to book a table, the informal restaurant in the cellar shares the wine list with Statholdergaarden – at a discount.

    Omakase is a Japanese restaurant offering an “omakase” menu, which means “to trust the chef”. With only 15 seats around the counter, Omakase offers a unique, personal Tokyo style eating experience. The Omakase Oslo beverage menu is broad with classical Japanese pairings like beer and a wide range of sakes, but the wine list has a selection to match the wide range of produce offered. Champagne and German riesling are well represented together with other major classic regions and a few surprises.
