Located in the heart of Majorstua in Oslo, is Fyr. A new restaurant serving exceptionally good food, without being exceptionally expensive.

If you are known to Majorstua, you have probably seen the old villa at Majorstua. Known as the “Acne-villa” located in one of the more expensive areas in Norway’s capital. If the weather allows for it, you will prefer to sit outside. But when it’s too cold or raining, you will also love sitting inside.

Love everything about the place

I have visited Fyr several times since it opened. For a casual glass of wine or a beer after work, to the more romantic dinner in the evening. And I have come to love staying here. The location is perfect. The atmosphere is just what I enjoy. The food tastes heavenly, and the service is excellent.

Restaurant Fyr

The atmosphere at Fyr is nice and relaxed. Usually you would suit up to eat food of this quality, but not at Fyr. That is the whole idea behind bistronomi also. Extremely good food, without the extremely high prices. (On the other hand not very cheap)  Classy food, but casual style.

Huge open kitchen

Once you decide to walk into the restaurant, this is the first thing you will see. Besides being welcomed by one of the nice people working there. On your right you will find the bar, in addition to the toilets at the very end.

Make sure to come hungry. And do eat the bread and butter they serve before the meal.

I have tasted almost everything they serve, and it all tastes great. The dishes are not too big, which makes it easy to share – and tempting to order several meals.

Not the cheapest, but perhaps one of the best

It might not be the cheapest meal  you have eaten in a restaurant, but I can promise you it will be one of the best. I cannot recommend it strongly enough.

If you leave outside of Oslo, and have come for a visit, you should award yourself with a meal at Fyr. And perhaps combine it with staying overnight at THE THIEF. On the other side of the road for Fyr, is MeansWear  where I love to do my shopping for suits, shirts and shoes.

Dagbladet – one of Norways largest newspapers, wrote a great review of Fyr. In case you don’t want to take my word for it.

Book your table at Fyr Bistronomi from their website (Norwegian language only).
