These Oslo Restaurants Are Still Open And/Or Offering Take-Away

Last week, the city of Oslo announced new Covid-19 related restrictions that, once again, heavily affect the restaurant industry. From Tuesday, November 10th, it’s no longer allowed to serve alcohol anywhere. Right now, this rule is in effect throughout November (but it would come as no surprise if it was extended until the end of 2020). The alcohol ban comes on top of existing regulations: all employees are required to wear masks (as well as guests, except when they are sitting down), guests from different households must sit one meter apart, and opening hours are reduced (no new guests after 10:00 pm and fully closed by midnight, at the latest). Needless to say, it has become increasingly difficult to run a restaurant in 2020.

At the same time, the world is dealing with a dangerous new virus that has to be taken seriously. Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem like there will be a new bailout for restaurants this time (besides, the last round of care packages had little or no effect, according to several sources). This means it’s yet again up to guests to support their favorite local restaurants! Below is a list of the best restaurants in Oslo, most of them taken from our city guide and map, that are still open – and/or offer take-away.

These Oslo Restaurants Are Still Open

À L’aise

Chef Ulrik Jepsen believes Oslo’s food lovers still want to eat well despite the state of the world. That means À L’aise will remain open and the restaurant will go all-out on alcohol-free drinks – including sparkling teas and mocktails! Book your table here.
