Fredrikstad has grown from strength to strength to become a somewhat surprising "culinary mecca" with a wide selection of excellent restaurants! In this charming Østfold town, you can treat your taste buds with delicious food along the wharf promenade, in the Old Town and from Fredrikstad's hotels.

Plenty of choice in where to eat

In Østfold, in the east of the country, lies Norway's first Renaissance city, Fredrikstad. Here, you can stroll along the waterfront and enjoy views across the mouth of the river Glomma, or visit the fascinating and historic Old Town, which is one of Northern Europe's best-preserved fortified town (which is alone worth a visit to Fredrikstad). Wherever you wander, as you explore this lovely town, there is always an excellent restaurant nearby with plenty of variety to choose from.

Some of Norway's best ingredients

The entire Østfold region is famed for the quality of its produce, with many chefs seeking to establish successful restaurants in Fredrikstad, where menus are prepared with the best local ingredients throughout the year. The surrounding farms provide the freshest food a short step away, and the catch of the day takes no time to arrive on your plate. Places like The Social Bar & Bistro, to name but one, are a great place to enjoy this seasonal quality with classic bistro dishes with a twist.
