Café Månefisken has the most wonderful location in Oslo! Note that from September to April it is only open for events. Please check their Facebook page for upcoming events.
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.
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.
This is a typical summer place, and is only open daily from May to September. If you sit on the outdoor tables by the river, it 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 on summer days and summer nights.
