Klosteret – Oslo’s most unique restaurant

If you fancy the idea of eating in a wide cellar, brick walls, arches and ceiling, the only source of light being hundreds of candles, walls decorated with byzantine icons and motifs and having hundreds of wines to choose from, then you should definitely try Klosteret in Oslo. The address is Fredensborgveien 13, 0177 and that is close to Deichmanske Main Library.

The menu is a combination of Norwegian and many international foods and the desserts make you wish you had more fingers to lick after. I consider it also rather pricey, but the service was very good (and I can’t stress enough about food quality) and the unique atmosphere in the local makes it worthy occasionally. Plus they really know how to combine the wines and the foods for an enhanced taste experience.

The name of the place translates as ‘The Monastery’. They play acapella Gregorian light music at a very decent volume that easily gets covered by people’s voices if too crowded. But you can easily hear it when paying tribute to mother nature.

All in all it manages to create a romantic atmosphere despite the wideness of the cellar and the fact that tables are not that separated. And for the connoisseurs, the restaurant’s wine cellar was awarded “Best of Award of Excellence” for five years in a row.
