From hearty brasserie-style dishes to Tak, an innovative Norwegian-Japanese spot from Swedish chef Frida Ronge, Sommerro offers plenty of dining and drinking options. Izakaya is our informal street food and cocktail bar, also run by Ronge. Ekspedisjonshallen is an all-day neighbourhood eatery, and at To Søstre guests can enjoy afternoon tea in elegant surroundings. At Plah & Ahaan, the Thai restaurant helmed by chef Terje Ommundsen, while Barramon serves us pintxos and wine Basque-style. There is also a strong emphasis on wellness (perhaps to get rid of some of those calories from dinner) as Sommerro also boasts a sprawling wellness paradise that includes a series of treatment rooms, a roman bath and sauna, a vast fitness room and, of course, the aforementioned original swimming pool with a magnificent Per Krogh mosaic.
Frogner is a leafy residential and retail borough on the west side of Oslo. Originally part of an estate extending outwards from Frogner Manor, which you can visit on guided tours during summer, the area is also home to most of Oslo’s international embassies. We recommend making time for a visit to Vigeland Park (also known as Frogner Park), where you’ll find more than 200 bronze and granite sculptures by Gustav Vigeland.
