Arakataka in central Oslo is a restaurant and wine bar which continues to build one of the most interesting wine lists in Oslo. In the restaurant a seasonal menu is offered while modern bar food is served in the more informal wine bar.
Arakataka Wine List
Arakataka’s wine list has an eclectic mix of contemporary and classic producers and there is always a good selection of interesting wines by the glass.
This place feels like home and is great for any occasion; if you want to get your hands dirty with pepper crab and riesling, or if you’re going all in and having everything on the menu. But mostly I end up in the bar – ‘matbaren’. Here you can order one small dish at the time while you look through the wine list, because that could take some time. I always have a hard time to decide what to get here because there are just too many goodies to choose from. Luckily the staff there has great taste and is always there to help.
