I made a reservation at Staholdergaarden for my husband's birthday. He did not know where we were going until I told him that we get off the bus. There is only one fancy place in the area so he expected it must be Bent Stiansen's restaurant.
The food was fabulous and it was nicely presented. For fine dining restaurants, you would expect small portions. Indeed it was the same here. But after receiving 5 different dishes, I got satisfied in the end. I have been to Paul Bocuse restaurant in Lyon and I could say that Paul Bocuse must be special in serving big portions. The only Michelin restaurant that really serve big portions.
I highly recommend Statholdergaarden because of the quality of the food. Each dish has a distinct taste. It has character. It is also a nice place to celebrate a special event in your life like a birthday or anniversary.
Just be prepared to pay about 2500 norwegian kroner including wine. With this price my husband had wine for each of the different dishes. I do not drink much so I just ordered 2 glasses of wine during the whole meal.
Be aware too that the location of Statholdergaarden is near the "red district" of Oslo. I saw 2 women outside standing infront of a shirt store and cars stopped. You could see that they were selling sex with the skimpy clothes they wore. It was safe to go home late at night even though the location is in the seedy area of Oslo.
