Food & drinks

Restaurants and bars

Food and drink is available at several sites in the Oslo Opera House: Restaurant Argent offers exquisite food using seasonal ingredients with a matching wine menu. Argent Fine Dining is open on performance days. Bookings can be made via opera-huset.no, and we recommend that you book your table two hours before the performance commences. Argent is situated on the left of the Opera Foyer, opposite the Second House.

Sanguine Brasserie & Bar is on the right of the Opera Foyer, facing the Oslo Fjord, and is open every day. It offers an extensive lunch and dinner menu, encompassing snacks, à la carte, a children's menu, and a three-course meal of the day. In the summer months the restaurant stretches almost down to the water's edge.

The other bars (outside of Argent, and on the Upper Circle and Gallery floors) are open before performances and during intervals.

Food and refreshments for the interval can be ordered in advance via opera-huset.no, or directly at the bar/restaurant before the performance.

Restaurant Argent

Argent is about quality and the art of cooking, with fresh ingredients as the main base – all in a relaxed but elegant setting. The word «argent» refers to the colour silver, pure and glossy as a newly polished silver service. The word derives from the Greek, and is pronounced the way it is written: Argent. To us, Argent also represents an atmosphere: intimate, relaxed and friendly. 

Argent offers exquisite food using seasonal ingredients with a matching wine menu.

Restaurant Argent is open Monday–Saturday 16–21 hrs. For menu, contact and reservations, please follow the link below.
