A lovely restaurant in Grünerløkka. These people know what they're doing. The place has a lot of charm, and it welcomes you with open arms, whether you arrive in jeans with a few mates for a laid back night out, or in a fancy dress with your partner for a stylish celebration. The food is amazing, and are paired perfectly... More

Excellent location, took a little too long to be seated even though we didn't have reservation. Fantastic food, wine list and sommelier. An absent-minded waiter excused himself a few times, but we thought once was enough, after that you concentrate. Wine prices were better than many other restaurants in Oslo.

Friendly place with superb selection of wines,knowledgeable waiters to pour it and good food to follow. Recommended to pass an easy evening This is not a cheap place, you can easily get to 700-1000 NOK per person for meal +wine. However it is good value.

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

Description
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.
