Ekeberg Restaurant

I went to Oslo with my friend Lasma to visit my friend Hans Peter and see the city. Hans Peter recommended we go for lunch to Ekeberg Restaurant, due to the view and as it was quite famous (eating there is ranked as the 9th best thing to do in Oslo by the Lonely Planet guide). The white building where the Ekeberg restaurant is located sits on a hill among the green forest and overlooks the Oslofjord, the islands and boats, as well as the city of Oslo. The building was designed by Oslovian Lars Backer and was completed in 1929, and it was said to be one of the foremost Functionalist buildings in Europe. By the end of the 1990s, the restaurant was closed, but it has re-opened recently and been redecorated and the classic features have been retained from 1929. The view from here of the Oslofjord was said to have inspired Edvard Munch in the creation of his masterpiece, The Scream

Eneberg Restaurant is busy and we went there for lunch on Saturday and could hardly get a table, so you should really book if you want to go there. There are many rooms and there is even an outside area, where you can sit during the summer.

Hans Petter and I had a burger, which was good and served not with fries, but with roasted potatoes. Lasma had a fish soup which looked tasty. You can also see two different deserts we all shared. The food was good and enjoyable, but the best part of this restaurant is definitely the view, so you should go there for this if you are ever visiting Oslo.
