Had a three day stay in Oslo two weeks ago with my girlfriend, this was the last restaurant we visited and the best meal out of all of them. Our waitress Julia was so helpful - Thank you to her. I would recommend every dish we had especially the dessert with the basil sorbet (I think). Love this whole experience... More

I have been here three times (romantic meal for two, formal professional evening and a meal with friends, and all were faultless. The staff are immaculately trained and knowledgeable about the food, the atmosphere is on the right side of up-market (not stuffy or cold), and the food is a joy to try. Highly recommended for a polished evening, without... More

Took a client here, on his recommendation, as he was local. The staff are very helpful; every dish was explained in perfect English; they even suggested which drinks (beers and wines) suited which dishes. We opted for the 5/6 course tasting menu and each dish was beautifully presented. The flavours were clear and distinct and it got better with every... More

Arakataka is one of my absolute favorite restaurants in Oslo, delivering consistent high quality food and interesting flavor combinations. Yesterday was no exception! The reindeer tartar, duck and spaghetti with löyrom was particularly good. It's a value for money place, I like the wine selection they offer and the sommelier is very knowledgeable. I've dined there multiple times over the... More

We had the 4 course menu - all great and two of the courses were outstanding! For Norway it was not bad price especially given the super the quality of the food. Great service.

Food was fantastic. Each of the five courses on the set tasting menu were very clever with great and unexpected flavour combinations that worked superbly well. Also pretty good value considering very high quality of the food. Staff also very friendly and knowledgable. Highly enjoyable experience start to finish, will definitely be back next time in Oslo.

Together with nine of my colleagues I enjoyed a great evening at Arakataka in December. We chose the four-course meal (pre-booked), paired perfectly with different wines. The main course (lamb) was in my opinion the only dish that really stood out – with both interesting combinations, and an impeccable taste. The dessert (ice cream) and second starter (cod) were tasty... More

I visited this restaurant on a date night with my girlfriend. We were in Oslo for the weekend and wanted to eat somewhere special and "hip". It's definitely a very modern and fancy interior and the service is great. The quality and choice of dishes was tasty and at times interesting combinations. We had a very good evening though we...

Visited place Sunday afternoon after a whole day walking around the city. No reservation but still got a table for two hours. Was very happy to hear that. But Recommend to make a reservation. The restaurant is recommended in Michelin guide. It got quite full in a one hour. Sitting alone I was suddenly in the full restaurant. Attentive staff... More
