Stortorvets Gjestgiveri revisited













I have previously described Stortorvets Gjestgiveri as: "their food", as "rather mediochre. Once again it is sad to say that atmosphere you find in this beautiful old house is not strengthened by its kitchen. So, once again, enjoy a beer or wine in the old interior or the beautiful courtyard, and eat somewhere else.” After a visit yesterday I am happy to say that this is not the case anymore. They serve great food!!!

Yesterday I dropped in to meet a colleague and got a table by the large 18th century fire place. The fact is that it is one of the most beautiful places to eat and drink in the Norwegian capital. I ordered an open Danish-style sandwich with chicken salad and bacon. It was expensive, but may how it tasted. For 12 EUR you got a huge sandwich. Chicken in a great mayonnaise-sour cream dressing with curry, crisp bacon, and fresh salad. Others enjoyed traditional Norwegian food in this wonderful old eating hall. So I am now happy to recommend Stortorvets Gjestgiveri for dining and drinking.
