A traditional restaurant in the heart of Oslo.

A cultural institution

Lorry is one of Oslo’s oldest restaurants, with a history dating back to the 1870’s. The place has been run by the same family for over 60 years through three generations.

Our waiters have a profound respect for their profession, wearing long serving aprons and white shirts with colourful bow ties. And of course, a big smile.
With its casual atmosphere and unique interior, Lorry has become a natural meeting point for locals, as well as an attraction for visitors. Here, just a stone’s throw away from the Royal Palace, you can enjoy a traditional lunch or dinner in quiet surroundings — and experience the buzzing nightlife of Oslo just hours later. Meny
As you walk through the door, you’ll be greeted by exotic animals, unique artwork and rare objects.
