Restaurants in Oslo, Bergen and Trondheim

Eating out in the big cities.

Because of Norway's long traditions as a fishing nation, fish has always been an important ingredient on the Norwegian menu. However, Norwegian farms as well as good stocks of game, have contributed to the Norwegian kitchen with high quality meat.

During the last years Norwegian chefs have been winning international prizes, by the help of their tendency to redefine traditional dishes with a new twist.

Each city has its own identity in the way of cuisine and entertainment.
