We'd never have come across this place if not for the Tripadvisor reviews, are we're very glad that we did. From start to finish, this was an exceptional meal and experience in general

The staff were personal and friendly, if a little eccentric. Outstanding, embarrassingly good English. We had a four course menu (foregoing unfortunately the seabass and scallop ceviche). We started with a lobster risotto with lobster foam, braised artichoke and shallot puree which was incredibly divine. That was followed by fried skatewing with sweet potato terrine and carrot puree ( :D )and thereafter by roast halibut with sweetbread and a beurre rouge. We finished with a tarte tatin and tarragon sorbet (I found the tarragon sorbet challenging but my friend loved it). This was accompanied by a delicious chablis from the extensive menu.

We were looked after from start to finish in a stress free way. Our waiter (dressed like a chef - we weren't sure if he was the chef) deeply cared that we enjoyed our experience and what we were eating but had nothing to worry about.

The restaurant itself is beautiful, with hide-lined seats and an exceptional bathroom. If ever back in Oslo or a friend is visiting, will definitely return or be delighted to recommend this place.

Recommended this restaurant to my business crowd from the Tripadvisor ratings. They loved it. Even one lady on our crowd who does not like fish said the place was good

We had a complimentary sashimi halibut, which set expectations so high. The rest of the dishes was fine, and the pumpkin purée served on an orange plate was a sight to remember

Will recommend this place highly to fish lovers who want a different expression.

I was in Oslo on business and ran upon this place. I ate along at the bar and got to watch the food being plated which was a lot of fun. Amazing attention to detail and each dish (in my four course set) was just amazing. I savored every bite and drop. Don't miss it!

The food was beautifully presented. The choice varied. The wine selection affordable ( for Oslo) the service impeccable and the interior beautifully designed. The management at Fjord seem to have got it very very right. But for one thing. The incongurous music played too loudly. With a buzzing ambience derived from the chatter of the customers we saw no need for the music at all. Our only guess is that it was for the benefit of the staff. That gets me onto the best part of the experience we had. The service and staff. Our waitress (Debbie) was outstanding. Effecient, knowledgeable, engaging, she not only ensured we enjoyed our exepreince but also enhanced it. My wife and I split the degustation menu so we got to enjoy all of it and Debbie guided us thorugh the ingredients of each dish with the aplomb of a well trained waitress who both knew her food and also her wines. Dont settle for ''second best'' and give Fjord a try.
