Nestled close to the bank of the Nybrufoss river, in the heart of the city, Barolo restaurant serves tantalizing Italian cuisine. Begin your meal with an appetizer of shellfish or lobster prepared in alluring cognac, wine and white sauce. Follow it up with a sumptuous fare of pasta or entrees made with fish, meat or poultry. A tiramisu or cake is the perfect finish for your meal. Accompany your food with a wine from their collection.
Jonas B Gundersen, nestled in Kongsberg, a few miles away from Oslo, can easily be mistaken for a book and record store. This space is actually a charming little restaurant that also nurtures art forms. The walls are embellished with portraits of Jazz maestros and paraphernalia: records, instruments and music sheets. If you ever get lost in the musical past here, the alluring aromas of freshly prepared Italian food are sure to bring you back to the present.
Sharing its address with Restaurant Opsahlgården, Christians Kjeller is a basement bar frequented by music lovers. There are some great musical performances that take place here, mostly by local bands playing country and blues music. It's not just the music that attracts patrons, though; you can pair wines with something from the tapas menu, and steaks are also on offer.
