You must go to Lorry’s! You get a good traditional dinner for the price. the atmosphere is cozy and quirky. One of my favs. It’s near the palace.

Hi! There aren’t too many to recommend - and real norwegian cuisine is ufortunately mostly something that is either made and served at peoples homes and / or in other seasons than this. Fårikål (lamb-cabbage stew), christmas dinners and so on. Fish soups are a great year-round treat - served many places.
In terms of recommendations:
Olympen at Grønland distrikt serves norwegian fare that is pretty affordable.
Solsiden opposite Aker Brygge distrikt has excellent seafood - but not very affordable. Share a seafood platter and it won’t be that expensive. The dollar is pretty strong now towards the norwegian crown, so it may be affordable.
Fiskeriet at Youngstorget square serves seafood - Fish and chips isn’t norwegian but their take on it is great. They usually serve fish soup.
Brasseri Hansken at the OLD city hall square is leaning towards french cuisine but with excellent norwegian sourcing and some norwegian / scandinvian dishes. Not affordable but good.

Since you are from America - don’t overtip! If the food is amazing and the server super attentive - then you may tip maximum 10 % - I usually give 5% if it’s very good. If not 0 % ID also fine. Nobody lives of tip in Norway. Don’t forget that. :)

Enjoy your dinner!
