Villa Malla is a great place to eat and relax. The villa is located in Filtvedt, a beautiful small place in the Oslo fjord. This is not your ordinary tourist attraction, a true treasure for those who want to spend time in quiet surroundings by the sea. The place gives a true maritime feeling, with bamboo furniture, a marquee, palm... More

This place is very popular for a good reason. The food is very good; a buffet lunch and dinner with a large variety of food. In addition to having lunch or dinner, you can spend the day on the private beach belonging to the place, and visit art galleries on the premises.

Villa Malla is absolutely one of the most beatiful places by the Oslo fjord. Go there just for some icecream and a bath on the beach, but I do reccomend lunch or dinner in the restaurant. The food there is delicious.

+ Great location - 275 NOK for a buffet - not including water, coffe or dessert. The food was terrible and did not include any seafood as you would expect. For this price you get far better meals on other restaurants Everything in the area is pricy, just to stop with the boat is expensive, so is visiting the lighthouse.... More

Villa Malla is the brainchild of chef Sonia Lee. A very informal restaurant, with stylish decor and plenty of local art on the walls. The restaurant offers stunning views of the Oslo fjord just outside. The outside area includes a quay, a beach and a massive seating area. All very well done up. The vibe is more Mediterranean than Norwegian.... More

I went to Villa Malla for an evening out with my colleagues. We started the evening with Water Scooters before going inside for dinner. The Mediterranean buffet was good. Villa Malla is situated right next to Filtvet Lighthouse, with a nice view of the Oslo fjord.

Food was advertised as Mediterranean and middle eastern, salads were individual plates of onion,... More

Out for a drive on the Hurum peninsula, south of Oslo, at the end of March, we dropped into the Villa Malla restaurant at Filtvet. This time we simply wanted a cup of coffee and a pastry. The welcome at the completely empty restaurant at 3 p.m. was warm and the cafe con leche excellent. There were no cakes or... More

Description
Villa Malla is not a restaurant, but an open space for the public. All guests are equally welcome, hungry or not, and there is no obligation to dine while visiting. Just come and have a look, or enjoy an ice cream, a bottle of wine, a hot cup of coffee or a cold beer in the shade of the palms. Villa Malla also has its own beach, so remember to bring a swimsuit and sunscreen on sunny days, and jump in the water!
