All comes down to budget. Maaemo, two star restaurant Oslo. One of top three in Scandinavia on The New Nordic Kitchen. Book early and bring a lot of cash (at least 3000 NOK). Best view of Oslo: Ekeberg Restaurant (1000 NOK).

Bryggeloftet & Stuene in Bergen at #11 Bryggen Harbourfront is one restaurant on two levels and the place for seafood and traditional Norwegian meals. Upstairs is less stuffy and touristy. Get a harbor view window upstairs, you may need to reserve. But if not, and you find a line downstairs, climb the stairs.

Eating in Norway can be quite expensive, but it is usually the alcohol you consume that boosts the price considerably.

As I am familiar with Oslo, I would recommend a nice dinner in a restaurant called Østkantfolk which serves traditional Norwegian food for a decent price.
The address is:
Heimdalsgata 37 0578 Oslo.
It is a side street of Grønland, and is not a touristy restaurant.

What you should see in Oslo is the Vigelandsparken Sculpture Park just for the uniqueness of the statues.

In order to sip in the the city atmosphere, I would head to the area Grünerløkka, and sit down in one of the many coffee bars and relax.

  1. Østkantfolk (restaurant)

  3. Grünerløkka (metro area)
