Oslo has many options for dinners and events in special surroundings.
For memorable evening events, there are lots of possibilities. Here are some examples:
The Old Masonic Lodge is Oslo's oldest and most beautiful venue for artistic and cultural events. It was originally built as a Masonic lodge in 1836, and is today an important centre for cultural events, concerts, conferences, balls and banquets for up to 450 persons.
A dinner cruise onboard a vintage sail ship on the Oslo Fjord is one of the most popular activities in the summer months. Sail among the islands and enjoy traditional food in a very charming setting. Maximum 800 persons (on 3-4 boats). See Norway Yacht Charter.

The Dyna Fyr Lighthouse
Oslo's most famous beacon from 1874 is the Dyna Lighthouse - in the middle of the fjord! The lighthouse is located on the skerry of Dyna right outside the Bygdøy peninsula - only five minutes by boat from the pier in the city centre. In the old days, the lighthouse keeper lived here with his family. Today, up to 45 people can have dinner here, prepared by some of Oslo's best chefs, in a truly unique setting.
