Vinland is an elegant and informal brasserie in one of Oslo’s most beautiful buildings, the former US embassy, designed by the renowned architect Eero Saarinen.

Our exciting menu offers a generous selection of classic and modern dishes, many of them prepared in our South Bend broiler at 800 degrees C /1400 F. Chef Charif El Messaoudi combines influences from his native France with American influences and Norwegian ingredients and flavours.

The restaurant has many different zones and is well suited for celebrations, romantic dinners, coming together or friends, large parties in our auditorium - or just a glass of wine in the bar. We are open for lunch and dinner all week, and we invite for brunch in the weekends.

If you are planning a business dinner or meeting, our Secret room can seat 16 people with full privacy, and the beautiful Saarinen room, the former auditorium in the embassy, can seat up to 60.

At the heart of the restaurant is our extensive and sympathetic wine cellar, curated by wine director Francesco Marzola. Here we have a wide selection of tip wines from the most renowned areas and producers, as well as the possibility of exploring new and exciting wines from off the beaten track.

Chef Charif ElMessaudi, wine director Francesco Marzola, restaurant manager Miklos Revai and their teams look forward to welcoming you to Vinland!
