“Beautiful, green location by the sea on the outskirts of Oslo”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

This old, white villa by the sea houses a shop and a restaurant. Hidden inside an affluent suburban living area, Strand is different from the restaurants in the inner city with its home-like cozy atmosphere and decorations, sometimes verging on kitsch. There is a view of the sea, excellent seasonal food, often from local produce. The food was tasty and fresh with little, original twists on traditional combinations and very good wine. All is served and presented in aprofessional and friendly manner.

“Wonderful location, Hidden Gem!”
Reviewed 3 May 2014

Went there with a friend for lunch, and was pleasantly surprised by the cozy atmosphere and simplicity. the sea front view added to the already charming little restaurant.

The menu choices were not vast but just right, we settled for chicken soup with mushroom and galangal and it turned out to be fantastic, their dessert were equally scrumptious ( I ordered a cheese cake which was great, though I did not like the whipped cream on top of the cake, but the cake was fantastic)

The crew at the restaurant are friendly, polite and very attentive, all which left a wonderful impression and a definite come back!

“First rate dinner”
Reviewed 5 November 2013

Was here with a group of 16. Excellent food, but hard to tell when you are not ordering off the menu. Some of the food pairings were not exactly my suit, but it was all well prepared and presented. Great staff, who chose excellent wines to accompany the food.

Even though I did not have a chance to experience other dishes, I would recommend the place with out reservation!

“Excellent service and lovely food”
Reviewed 27 October 2013

We took the Chef's menu of 6 courses and found the food interesting and truly special. The waiter who used to work at Ekeberg was a great host and really liked the appearance of one of the chef's to explain the courses also. Paired wines were a bit hit and miss. Really lovely setting.
It isn't cheap but it is Oslo!
