Engebret Café Restaurant

For the more old-school visitors, as well fans of great-tasting food, this restaurant is the go-to- choice. The menu offers a diversity of foods, ranging from its wide variety of seafood to one of its specialties, game. The restaurant’s offer is based on the traditional Norwegian meals from 1857, and the choice of wine ranges from Norwegian to international wines, such as French wine. The restaurant is also a particularly popular meeting place of Norwegian and international celebrities. With the setting being a building constructed in the 1760s, protected by law by the Norwegian Directorate for Cultural Heritage, visiting this restaurant almost seems like visiting a museum, a truly great escape from modern times. You cannot miss it as it tells its own story, and you can recognize it by the statue of Johannes Brun, a Norwegian businessman, army officer and actor, located right in front of it. In April, outdoor dining is made available, with the number of seats the restaurant offers reaching its maximum of 340 at this time.
