I really don't see how you could go wrong choosing this restaurant. We both enjoyed the fish of the day (monkfish) while watching numerous signature seafood platters go by. Or we watched the sun going down over the harbour. Our waiter was attentive and helpful....More

What is it about Northern European seafood that makes them better than equatorial seafood specially the shellfish. Maybe it's the cold waters. Solsiden reminds me our seafood in Paris, fresh and clean and very sweet. The seafood platter consisted of local snow and king crabs,...More

If you want to be seen and have a yearning for some seafood by the Harbour, come to this place. The food is good but nothing to brag about. If you a tourist (you definitely will visit Bergen) and want to splurge, the seafood variety...More

Description
Solsiden restaurant is only open during the summer season.

Solsiden Restaurant is a seafood restaurant where we use only the best raw materials the coast has to offer. Besides a variety of different fish we always have "Plateau de Fruits de Mer" on the menu. This is our specialty consisting of lobster, clams, crabs, mussels, shrimp, crayfish (when they are available fresh) and king crab. The dishes can be accompanied by one of the over 250 wines from our wine menu.

Solsiden Restaurant is located on Akershusstranda right below Akershus Fortress. Enjoy the magnificent sunset over the Oslo Fjord through the windows and open sliding doors. Here Oslo harbor is like a marine painting that changes from minute to minute.

Welcome and Bon Appetit!
