Located in the still quite new foodcourt or foodhall in what the locals call Vulcan and visitors might call Grünerløkka (it’s on the wrong side of the river), Øltorget is run by Ølakademiet, by people who know their stuff. They have been working on pairing food and beer for years, they run seminars, they do tastings and brewing and, well, they are all really good at what they do. And as you can see from my rating, only value drags it down. Because, this is in Norway, and it is something you never get away from, living in a country where the government feels it should act a financial vengeance on you for enjoying beer and the finer things in life.
But don’t let that steer you away (I mean, chances are, you’re already in Oslo if you’re reading this). They have an excellent selection for such a small place, with loads of Danish, Belgian, Norwegian and British beers. And the food? Wow, it is really, really top notch.

I love this place! Might be a little loud during the rush of people during the day and afternoon on fridays and saturdays, but surprisingly quiet at night. What they lack in size they make up for in the selection of beers. You can expect there to be new beers there every time you go, and the selection on tap is great. They have even been able to fit a chef behind the counter, they are not always in, but if they are you should try their food, it’s quite excellent for the cost.

I wouldn’t call Øltorget a restaurant, it’s more of a beer bar with simple but excellent pub grub made in the small kitchen corner (I enjoyed a tasty moose burger with melted blue cheese). On previous attempts I’ve found the place too cramped to visit, but on an early Saturday in March (2013-03-23) I found it pleasantly vacant and sat down. The beer selection on draft is very decent, with 14 taps ranging from standard Pilsner Urquell to English craft beer Moor Nor’Hop. On bottle, the selection is more than decent with more than 200 types, and new ones added every week. I was also pleasantly surprised by the interest and knowledge in beer, shown by the two bartenders. All in all, Øltorget is a nice addition to the Oslo beer scene, but you should come early after opening time or on Sundays.

My best bar experience in Oslo. Great atmosphere with the market being a hit with my wife,friendly & very knowledgeable staff who was happy to talk beer, decent enough prices for Norway(half-pours at half-price if you want a taster) and a fairly nice bottle& tap list though when I went it was dominated by Danish beers & had no Norwegian ones on tap.

Nice place in Mathallen, gives some vibes of beeing a bar in a shopping place, but otherwise very nice. Good selection of rortating beers on tap- always something exiting. NIce bottle selection, so you could spend a full evening here.

Mathallen seems like a must-visit food spot in Oslo. There are a number of grills and kitchens making fresh plates of food in front of you, a few crafts and goods sellers, and seafood markets selling to-eat or to-go foods. Same sort of feel as Östermalmshallen in Stockholm and the Boqueria in Barcelona, though much smaller. Within this hall you have this dedicated craft beer bar. The guy who took care of us I think was a/the manager. Very knowledgeable about beer, friendly to chat with, didn’t push any particular style or beers, and gladly took back an infected bottle that was purchased. It’s a nice place to wander and shop and eat and drink, and you can throw it in with Schouskjelleren and Glød for a walk along the creek path.

Our plan was to have lunch in Mathallen, but the grandiose breakfast at our hotel now became a "problem" We ended up in some deep, comfy leather chairs enjoying Icelandic beer. Service minded and knowledgeable staff. (Visited December 6th 2014)
