We recently had dinner at Afrika Oase. It was truly an oasis. Rose, the owner, brings African food and culture to the far, far north and her warmth and hospitality only enhance the great food experience. We ordered the goat skewers and the wild antelope (the antelope was offered at a reduced price), both served with homemade chutneys (a mixed berry chutney and a red onion and chill chutney), melon salad with cabbage and fried plantains. The food was excellent and we really enjoyed the unusual tastes. This was a fine-dining experience in the warmth of an open fireplace and Rose's welcoming personality. She will offer you a taste of every juice on the menu and there is a small but good selection of wine and beer to wash down the grilled meat. The prices are relative for Norway (about NOK400 per person for mains, one beer, one glass of wine and dessert) but very much within the range of any decent restaurant in the country. The restaurant is located in one of several historic customs buildings from the 18th Century, which only adds to the great ambiance inside the restaurant. Afrika Oase is an exotic restaurant in an already-exotic part of the world. Enjoy the experience!
