Local cuisine

We will be in Oslo for 12 hours on a cruise ship stop in August, departing Oslo at 11PM. We would like to enjoy a local meal that evening, preferably a restaurant not far from the port. We are adventurous eaters and don't need fine dining but would like something nice. What are some of the do-not-miss items we should enjoy? Thanks in advance!

How many Norwegian restaurants are there in San Diego? Perhaps a hint that Norwegian cuisine is difficult to define. There are several Michelin quality restaurants but these would require booking well in advance.

Perhaps seafood? Skur 33 or a good choice at Aker Brygge.

Not seafood? Statholderens or Engebret.

Norway chefs win Bocuse d'Or. Would haute cuisine with local ingredients fit the bill ? Norwegians love pizza and burgers..... sushi has been in Vogue for a time noe, but the novelty interest/fashion is running out.

Probably none in San Diego but there are a handful in Minneapolis, where I am from! I'm sure their menus vary from one to the next :)

I would absolutely love to dine at one of the Michelin Star restaurants but we are looking for something a little less fancy considering we will have been touring all day.

@dyoll We love seafood, thank you for the suggestions. I will look into those options.

@klimaflyktning Yes, that does fit the bill. Anything with seafood, local ingredients and maybe something unique to Norway, if there is such a thing.

Depends on season what would be available at good restaurants. Reindeer and whale would be somewhat unique plus some types of and shellfish.
