Historical establishment in the heart of town

The Grand Café first opened in 1874. In the restaurant, Henrik Ibsen would eat his daily lunch and Edvard Munch once offered to swap the painting ‘Sick Girl’ in return for 100 steak dinners. Now, more than 140 years later a new era has begun. A new restaurant and an extensive wine cellar. 

The restaurant serves Nordic food with inspiration from around the world. The open-plan solution gives the guests a direct view into the kitchen, which is run by Norway's National Culinary Team Captain Alexander Østli Berg and Head Chef Christofer Bengtsson. The restaurant is open everyday for lunch and dinner.

If you fancy a glass of wine, the rich wine cellar can be found in the basement below the restaurant. It holds over 16.000 bottles and more than 1.500 wines from all around the world, and in all price ranges. Down here they serve nibbles and snacks – a perfect combination when you enjoy a glass of wine or two.
