This place used to be quite good back in the day. Now its only an average tapasbar. The service is unpredictable.The staff is overworked, stressed and annoyed by their guests. The food is average. The location and atmosphere is good though.

They have a good selection of standard tapas and some special tapas of the week. We had a selection of both. The food is ok, but not special. Good selection of wine by glasses.

We tried this place as a "drop in". Never heard about this place, but very happy we stopped. We asked the waiter to "surprise" us and they surely did. A lot of typical tapas dishes but also some specialities. Goat cheese grilled with honey - jummy. Very good service. The only slightly negative was the chairs - wooden, small and... More

A tapas restaurant which are quite expensive and small. You need to order a lot here to become full and you will leave with an empty wallet. The atmosphere and staff are great.

The food (tapas) is excellent and perfect for sharing with one or more people. The staff are friendly, but very slow when it comes to paying attention, bringing food, noticing customers etc. They need to improve on the service as it pulls down an otherwise good restaurant.

Always a treat to visit Delicatessen. It feels like you are in Spain and tasty tapas. We had the daily specials like Vitello tonnato and baby back ribs which was fantastic. Just missing out some more tapas dishes from the ocean (my personal taste) Thanks

Thank Joakim K

Delicatessen Grunerlokka serves Spanish tapas made from a combination of Norwegian and Spanish ingredients. We pride ourselves on using the best ingredients available.

I.E. All of our fried food is fried in Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Montabes in Jaen, Andalucia. The Montabes oils are known for their high level of antioxidants and actually adds flavor and nutrients to the food. This is an expensive way to fry food but only the best is good enough for us.

All of our hams come from specially selected producers. Our main supplier of hams is Casalba in Burgos. At Casalba knowledge of how to make the finest hams, chorizo etc has been passed down for several generations. We are proud to be able to offer their world class products to our customers.

We aim to create a relaxing atmosphere with great food combined with the best tintos, blancos and rosados Spain can offer.
