    Frognesteren: In the Marka

    by apbeaches Updated Jul 13, 2015

    Built in 1909, with the national romantic style . The views of Oslo from the restaurant were spectacular from every table. The intimate Restaurant Finstua is serves lunch from noon until 2 PM. Dinner is served from 3:30 except Sundays when dinner starts at 1:00. Reservations were a must.

    Initially, they got the game and fish delivered directly to our doorstep by the hunter and fishermen themselves. The kitchen could unfold themselves with fresh ingredients directly from nature. The chefs follow old Norwegian food traditions. The staff in the kitchen has taken up the old preparation methods such as salting, smoking and pickling of food, commonly used to preserve the food during winter. To prepare the food from scratch gives inspiration and developed creativity to combine the old and the modern kitchen.

    The menu changes seasonally because the kitchen picks the best of what the nature can offer.

    Favorite Dish: Fish, reindeer and cheese.

    Frognerseteren: The porsche restaurant in Oslo's prosche area

    A typical Norwegian buffet restaurant on top a ski resort. There are nice houses all over the slopes until the city center.
    From the restaurant, you may see the panorama of Oslo city.

    The food was also tasty, but very expensive. You need more than 30 euro to eat a meal, including a plate, one muffin and a softdrink.

    Frognerseteren: Rudolph under a thatched roof

    by littlesam1 Written Apr 20, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I had my trusty Ric Steves travel guide in hand. Although I know its basically for tourists, I wanted to have grilled reindeer for dinner one evening while in Norway. Ric Steves said you could get Rudolph under a thatched roof at Frognerseteren. So we ventured off to find the restaurant at Frognerseteren. However like everywhere else in Oslo the menu was very expensive. Reindeer would have cost approximately $35-$40 American dollars. I just could not see paying that much for a lunch. So instead I settled for sliced leg of lamb and some delicious stewed vegetables for about half the price of the reindeer. I may be a tourist but I have to keep a budget.

    Favorite Dish: The speciality here is their hot apple pie. It was wonderful. I would recommend it to finish off you dinner or lunch.

    Address: Holmenkollvn. 200, 0791 Oslo

    Directions: Take any west bound tram going to Frognerseteren. It is the last stop on the tram line outside of Oslo.

    Frognerseteren is one of the oldest restaurants in Oslo, I believe it has been in operation for over two hundred years!. I walked from the Ski Tower jump to this restaurant, it was about a fifteen minutes walk.
    The Cafe and restaurant Frognerseteren is on a hillside overlooking Oslo and the fjord.

    Favorite Dish: I only had a sandwich and a drink, but the view from here is spectacular.
