We had their 2-course lunch menu. Their fish soup rocks -- absolutely delicious. Our fish was bland, nothing great. The tab was high, we were underwhelmed.

It is a well-placed restaurant with an extremely attentiv manager, while the servers a bit behind. The food was very creativ and good; however, the lobster was almost cold once arrived at the table. The wine list is well sorted.

Description
Lofoten is an elegant, yet cosy and relaxed seafood restaurant on the edge of Aker Brygge with an exquisite maritime menu, good beverages and excellent service. Lofoten pride themselves in serving the best fish and seafood the sea has to offer. The restaurant's philosophy is to serve rustic food that not only looks good, but also tempts the palate and satisfies one's hunger. The menu changes 7-8 times a year and reflects each season's specialities. January-March: Steamed cod with liver and roe, flown in from Lofoten! April-September: Summer menu, 200 seats outside with a great view of the Oslo Fjord. October-December: The Norwegian speciality lutefisk (cod treated with lye).
