“Wonderful experience”

Sentralen Restaurant
Ranked #159 of 1,649 Restaurants in Oslo
Price range: USD 4 - USD 25
Description: Sentralen Restaurant is an informal dining venue for most occasions, serving food made from quality Norwegian ingredients and continental flavours. There aren't any white tablecloths on the tables, and we won't hover over you or top up your water or wine. If you like, you and your friends can order several different dishes which will be served ready to share. We want to create a social and rustic atmosphere around the table, with platters that are easy to dig into and share. Our menu will change frequently according to the season, and there will always be plenty of light bites as well as bigger dishes that are designed for several people. And if you find that you just can't choose between all the tempting options on offer, every day we will put together a select assortment of the light bites of the day. You're welcome to book a table for lunch or dinner, and we will always try to set some tables aside for those who just want to drop in.

We took a chance and walked in without a reservation early on a Saturday evening when the on line booking showed no availability. So glad we did! We were greeted warmly and seated immediately. The restaurant is high ceilinged with clean, industrial decor yet has a cozy feel. Wait staff were charming and helped us understand the menu and format. As recommended, we ordered nine dishes to share among the three of us. The smoked beetroot, fresh mozzarella, bread were amazing and our favorites. The king crab legs and asparagus were very, very good. The turbot, monkfish and goat kebab were good too as were the wine and beer. All in all, a wonderful experience!

The meal at Sentralen was the standout during our stay in Oslo. It fully lived up to its recommendation from a local foodie. A relaxed casual setting and friendly service. A very innovative menu with fresh local produce beautifully prepared in small helpings. Great value compared with other fine dining options in Oslo.

Nice concept with new flavours and exciting menus. The avocado dish is delicious, as well as the hot chocolate for dessert. Worth a weekly visit. Great hospitality, nice atmosphere. Definitely a must visit when in Oslo.

The restaurant has an informal attitude as well as an exciting menu.
Small courses based on local basics. Tastes were fantastic in the vegetarian beetroot tartar.
