Run by master chef Bent Stiansen, recipient of the culinary Oscar, the Bocuse d'Or, Statholdergaarden is a gourmet restaurant located in the old part of Oslo's city center in a fabulous building from 1640. The restaurant is divided into five rooms of different size, from the large Cleopatra room, where the stucco-decorated ceiling depict Cleopatra's striking death scene, to smaller, more intimate dining rooms. The menu is changed every day and Stiansen emphasizes use of fresh, local produce.
