Statholdergaarden is one of Osloʼs best restaurants

Owned by the chef Bent Stiansen. The Stiansen family opened their restaurant on the 1st September 1994 and ran it as a family concern. In 1998, Statholdergaarden won a Michelin Star.

Every day, we work to maintain and improve the reputation that we have achieved to ensure the complete satisfaction of our guests and staff. Bent Stiansen was the first Norwegian to win the Bocuse d’Or world championship for professional chefs in 1993.

The historic location

Statholdergaarden lies in Osloʼs historic quarter, ʻKvadraturenʼ [the quadrature], and the building dates from 1640. Ulrik Fredrik Gyldenløve, the King's Statholder or Steward, lived in the house at the end of the 17th century and gave his title to the restaurant. The beautiful stucco ceilings date from the 18th century and are considered the most beautiful of their kind in Norway.

Statholderens Mat og Vinkjeller

Stiansen creates modern dishes based on local ingredients fresh daily. Our more informal restaurant, Statholderens Mat og Vinkjeller, can be found in the cellar, serving high-quality Danish open sandwiches for lunch as well as exciting Scandinavian dinner dishes. Closed for lunch spring and summer.

Statholdergaarden is still a 1 star michelin restaurant.
