As many of you know, my brother married a lovely girl from Oslo some years ago, so it is a city that I return to often. On a recent trip I enjoyed a new dining spot with gorgeous views over Oslo Fjord: Ekebergrestauranten. It is a simply stunning spot to watch the sunset and enjoy an al fresco meal in the summer months. They also have a more formal indoor dining room with a fine dining menu, and the food is delicious. It is also worth taking a walk around the surrounding park to view the various art sculptures and installations.
The restaurant itself is housed in a listed building. Designed in the Functionalist style in 1929 by Oslo architect Lars Backer, the original restaurant was built as early as 1916. On a beautiful summer evening it is a fantastic perch to view Oslo.
