Norway is famous for its fresh seafood, and Aker Brygge and Tjuvholmen are home to many of the best seafood restaurants in the country. Among the most commonly served seafoods are salmon, trout, cod, shrimp, mussels and scallops - all of mouth-watering quality.
Some of the world's finest chefs can be found working in Oslo, which is home to all of Norway's Michelin-starred restaurants. Although the gourmet menus are often inspired by French cuisine, you will also find plenty of Norwegian and Asian influences.
Grønland, Grünerløkka and the area around Youngstorget are home to many informal restaurants offering tasty food at reasonable prices. In summer, the locals love to barbecue in the park - a really enjoyable way to save money.
International staples like sushi, burgers and pizza are everywhere in Oslo, but the capital also offers an abundance of great Mediterranean, Middle Eastern and Asian restaurants.
Open-faced sandwiches are an ever-present feature of Oslo's cafés for breakast and lunch, but you can also get a healthy salad or a tasty hot dog just about anywhere. For a simple treat, nothing beats the freshly made sweet rolls ("boller").
The locals love their coffee, which is served from coffee bars on almost every street corner in the city. Oslo's baristas take great pride in serving high-quality coffee to the Norwegians, who are second only to Finland in coffee consumption per capita.
