We, my wife and I, visited this French-inspired restaurant with two couples from the US. With its small rooms, it may appear a little cramped, but we got an excellent, corner table. We ate the three-course meal of the day consisting of pasta, slow-roasted pork and a dessert. The waiter insisted on choosing the appropriate wines to go with the... More

Our hotel recommended that we get away from the port area and try Markveien. The service was terrific. These guys know their wines, and they do wine flights with the tasting menus. One of our group is seriously lactose intolerant, and they made sure that he ate as well as the rest of us.

This was the best restaurant we ate at during our stay in Oslo. All of the other customers were Norwegian, so far was we could tell. Markveien is in the hip Grunerlokka area, and you won't find that many tourists who have ventured up here. But Markveien Mat & Vinhus is well worth the trip. The food was absolutely first... More

We went to Markveien for a double birthday dinner for my wife and her sister. We went early and the place was empty. Service started out prompt if somewhat impersonal and curt. That rather low level of service just got worse as the meal went on, even though only one other party came in. In marked counterpoint, the food was... More

This restaurant has been around for a while and it shows in a good way. It is broken up into several smaller rooms giving the place a nice intimacy and the walls are adorned with very interesting art. They have a well priced prix fixed meal but I ordered a la carte. Both the starter (gravlax with unique garnishes) and... More

Markveien Mat og Vinhus is the pendent to dr. Kneipp's Vinbar and shares the same menue and wine list. The difference appears to be that the you can reserve a table at the Vinhus but not at the Vinbar - however, they are connected by an open door, but the Vinbar setting is not quite as nice. However, what we... More

We came here in a group going for business dinner. Everybody was really happy with their food, in particular the seasonal starters but also lamb and entrecote which are fixed part of the menu. The service was perfect and we got excellent wine recommendation. Would come back any time!

Since the very beginning, 20 years ago, this restaurant in Oslo's Grünerløkka has been renowned for its excellent food, wide selection of wines and friendly service. Business people relax in the homely atmosphere for a good meal and friends gather for an informal evening out. The menu features lamb and crayfish as specialities, when in season. Next door is Norway's very first winebar, Dr. Kneipp's, with a wine list of hundreds of vintages, and a very reasonably priced dish of the day.
