Café Månefisken has the most wonderful location in Oslo! It is located in an old factory house right next to Akerselva. The café has kept the old style from the factory that used to be here, and have filled it with a bar, old furniture and a small stage. In the café they serve drinks, snacks and tapas dishes.
Note that during winter the café is only open for happenings and concerts, please follow their Facebook page to stay updated on events. From 1st May the café will be open daily.
This café is situated right next to one of my favorite spots in Oslo – a bench where you can sit down and watch the waterfall of Akerselva and get into a peaceful mood (check the Møllefossen article). Also from the outdoor tables on Månefisken you can enjoy the sound from the water and the view of the upper part of the waterfall.
Sitting down out here makes you feel like you’re far out of town! But I also like the atmosphere inside with the high ceiling and the rustic look, and it is a great place to chill out.
