The new Ostehuset in downtown Stavanger is open!

The new Ostehuset has opened!! Ostehuset in downtown Stavanger has been located in Hospitalgata for the last few years and now they have moved just around the corner to Domkirkeplassen. And what an upgrade this seems to be! I stopped by briefly on opening day just to check it out and it looks very promising. First of all: the new location used to be the Bank of Norway (Norges Bank) so it is actually a historic building and hence there are restriction to what can be done to the interior. It is also historic as this was the place of the biggest heist in Norwegian history: the NOKAS robbery. The building has a large façade towards Domkirkeplassen and with HUGE windows you get a lovely view from the inside. When entering this new place, you are faced with several options. On your left-hand side there is a deli with a good selection of cheese, bread, juice etc. On the right hand side you will find the section that is similar to the old Ostehuset : an informal café/bistro that has food and coffee. The new addition to Ostehuset is the restaurant Hagen (the Garden) in the back and the wine bar located on the mezzanine. The wine bar has a lovely view of the rest of Ostehuset – and to Domkirkeplassen. Apart from that there are private rooms and a room for maturing cheese! It looks like this is a great addition to the restaurant scene in Stavanger! Congratulations to owners Hanne Norman Berntzen and Tom Helge Sørensen on the brave move!!
