Restaurant description

Housed in the stunning, historic Akershus fortress in Oslo, Festningen is a wonderfully unpretentious and effortlessly elegant brasserie-style restaurant. Festningen is a place for fine dining in its modern and laidback dining room or al fresco come summer with its spectacular view of the Oslo fjords and Aker Brygge.

Festningen restaurant takes a seasonal approach to its menu, focusing on the finest ingredients of each season. Choose from the à la carte menu, or let yourself be tempted by the dishes of the day.

Extensive and a joy to peruse, the wine list at Festningen is in the capable hands of the knowledgeable staff and the wine cellar is worth a peak too.

The restaurant is located on the walls of the fortress, and can be reached on foot. Follow Myntgata from the police horse stables and head along the fortress walls. Taxis can drive to the restaurant’s front door along the walls. Alternatively, walk ten minutes from Stortinget or 15 minutes from Jernbanetorget (central station).

    Har lunsjet 2 ganger og spist middag 1gang på Festningen Restaurant. Hyggelig sted, betjeningen er utmerket, og maten absolutt god. Noe så vanlig som Cæsar salat, ble en fin opplevelse ved lunsjen i går, den beste vi hadde spist, ever!
