Statholdergaarden is Bent Stiansen’s gourmet restaurant. In 1993, Bent Stiansen became the world master of the culinary contest, Bocuse d’Or. He and his team have developed Statholdergaarden into one of Oslo’s and Norway’s best restaurants. In 1998, Statholdergaarden won a Michelin Star, which we are very proud of. Every day, we work to maintain and improve the reputation that we have achieved to ensure the complete satisfaction of our guests and staff.


“The lunch showed the very best of Tuscany. The food and wine combination was exciting, with the most successful being Vin Santo from Castello di Albola with the Milk Chocolate dessert.”
