    Lofoten, taking it's name from those islands up north, lies at the tip of Aker Brygge. Perfect location for sea food. A bit of a place to see and be seen, and a super place for business dinners if you want to impress guests. A bit cool-looking, steel and glassy, so if you want a more traditional and rough setting and lower cost/chic factor check out something else. You can get good seafood elsewhere in the neighbourhood as well.
    The menu concept is based on an 8-course dinner and a very long seating, but you can pick from the menu and an a la carte option to compose your own.

    Favorite Dish: Some very creative fish dishes, very good soups that should not be missed. If there is something recommended by the cook, i.e. today's specials, go for it; and whatever seasonal.
    Very, very good choice of wines to go with the sea food, and excellent presentation.
    You can check the menu on their web site.

    Lofoten fish restaurant is the last restaurant on the Aker Brygge... a good restaurant, with good food but a bit too posh... maybe that's why it was faily empty when we went there (on a thursday night). The restaurant is huge, though...

    Favorite Dish: My favourite: lofotens fiskesuppe, a green-looking delicious fish soup to die for. My partner had oysters and claims they are among the best he has ever had. We also tried baked salmon and reindeer, both good but not outstanding.

    Lofoten: Excellent seafood

    by xantylaol Updated Apr 4, 2011

    Lofoten is the name of this restaurant which is actually the name of a region in northern Norway that is famous for excellent seafood. (Check out Lofoten in my travel pages!).
    You get a great variety of seafood here and the quality is really good. You should definetly eat some seafood while in Norway, and this is one of the best places to visit for that matter!

    Favorite Dish: Come several times and work your way thru the menu - most things are really good :)

  • Lofoten: Great seafood restaurant

    by IanL7781 Updated Apr 4, 2011

    A modern sea food restaurant in newly built harbour area. Very attentive staff and good ambiance.

    wide range of seafood but little meat dishes.

    Try to get table near windows and watch the harbour scene.

    Favorite Dish: Baked sea bass with rich suace was the best I have tasted! Prices reasonable (for Oslo)

    Lofoten: A Big Splurge in Aker Brygge

    scandinavian design

    A beautifully designed restaurant at the end of the Aker Brygge complex, Lofoten appropriately features seafood from Norway's northern waters. The food - though somewhat simply prepared - was presented elegantly by the well-trained and helpful staff. It was the best service - and the most romantic atmosphere - I experienced all summer. Be warned - this restaurant is quite expensive, even for Oslo (250 - 400 NOK for an typical entree, anywhere from 300 - 600 NOK for a middling bottle of wine). This isn't the place to go if you are worried about getting close to the limit on your credit card. The "take" on a busy night here must be equivalent to the GDP of small African nations. Try to arrange to be taken here by someone who really really likes you a lot.

    Favorite Dish: Lobster - if that's you thing, you'll love it here;
    Blackened Norwegian Salmon

    Lofoten Fiskerestaurant, on Aker Brygge (www.lofotenfiskerestaurant.com/default.htm). This is the place to go for first class seafood. It's expensive like elsewhere in Oslo. The food and service is great however.
