7 child-friendly places to eat in Oslo

Take an adult with you and head out into the city for a really great meal. Enjoy a juicy, healthy hamburger or go from stall to stall sampling food from all over the world, followed by a bit of playtime when you’ve eaten your fill

Combining play and literature

At Litteraturhuset, right next to the Royal Palace, they serve up great-tasting, healthy and hearty meals such as hamburgers, soups and pastries. There are lots of fantastic activities for children here too, including reading sessions with authors. The wonderfully decorated playroom is a great place for restless children. If you’re interested in literature, culture or politics, it’s worth knowing that Litteraturhuset offers an exciting program of debates and readings.

Mmm… pizza

Crispy, with a thin base and great toppings. Family time is always fun at Villa Paradiso, because everybody loves pizza! And yes, of course you can get an antipasto or three. No wonder there’s always a large number of strollers at this restaurant in Grünerløkka.

On the quayside

At Vippa, on the site of the former Vippetangen ferry station, you can taste tacos like they make in Mexico or enjoy a burger or some falafel. Or how about some Eritrean injera? This large hall is home to several small permanent and guest stalls selling food and drink, so there’s plenty to choose from. There’s lots of room for strollers too. Round off your international meal with an ice cream and take a walk along the harbor.

Asian rainforest

If you’ve ever been to Thailand and are longing for some tom yum soup and sandy beaches, then just take the next streetcar to Yaya’s. Whatever the weather in Oslo, you’ll always find a tropical climate here, with beach chairs and the pleasant chirping of birds, because the restaurant is decked out as a Thai beach restaurant. Naturally, they also serve the kind of food you’d expect to find at a beach restaurant: Mango salad, fried rice and deep-fried scampi, not forgetting banana fritters with ice cream. So put on your sun hat and your flip-flops! PS: Children will be given a ‘Happy kids’ activity bag containing puzzles to keep them busy.

Restauranten har flere filialer.

Favorite for burgers

The extravagant hamburger menu at Kverneriet will soon have your mouth watering. They promise truffles, cheese and umami – and they keep their word. There’s plenty of flavor packed between the bread here and an excellent range of accompaniments. They’re also well known for catering to the little ones too. Something to drink? Why not try a chocolate fudge milkshake? If that sounds a bit too calorific for your liking, there are healthier options available. Kverneriet has three restaurants: One at Henriks Ibsens gate 100 on Solli plass square, one in Tønsberg and one in Majorstuen. The whole family will have a great time here. Guaranteed.
