The food is delicious, the presentation is nice, and the staff is friendly. We asked the waitress to select a good red wine and she did a great job of selecting a tasty wine that wasn't too expensive. Even though the check at the end was a bit higher than we were prepared for, we enjoyed the food and atmosphere.... More

This is one of Oslo's oldest restaurants. The building has character and therestaurant is cozy and quiet. In the summer season there is a large outside area serving drinks and food. The bar room is spartan and chairs could be more comfortable. The meal more than made up for that. The service was discrete and attentive. The food is very... More

This is a genuine and antique atmosphere with 3 secles vibrating in the walls. A well composed Meny and very kind and nice service, who took the time to inform about the dishes and the wine and even tell us about Oslo. The fish we had was just marvellous, nice arranged and a tasting like haven. As always Oslo is... More

For starters we had St Kristina ham from Tynset, with a glas of champagne (les Mesnil, don't remember producer, but fullbodied and delicious). I had a milk poached halibut with roasted pine nuts and beurre blanc. Yum! Along with a glass of red bourgogne (a great Santenay). My wife had roasted arctic char with a delicious shellfish risotto. The place... More

Raadhus garden My wife and myself went here for lunch in the garden area in late May. The weather was amazing and the garden is a lovely environment, but then it went downhill from there. Upon arrival we were not greeted by any staff member we had to approach a member of staff to get a table in an empty... More

We only had one night in Oslo on this visit and had not booked anywhere for dinner. Everywhere we tried was full / fully booked until we found Gamle Raadhus. There were several empty tables and I suppose that should have told us something. On the plus side, the food was delicious and well presented. Expensive but not overly so.... More

"the oldest restaurant in oslo" it boasts. pity it's stuck midway between the 70's and 80's of taste and inadequate service. very stuffy environment with aged carpet flooring and old fabric covered stalls and chairs. There were 2 people in the restaurant (3 counting me) and they couldn't give the wifi password because it would crash. Had I not been... More

Interesting history about the history of the building and the area told to us by the waitress. Food is good, in great combination with wine also served by a knowlegdable waitress. The restaurant has its own ghost, however none of us did see it (neither had the waitress).

Billed as the oldest continuously running restaurant in Oslo, it is definitely the place of our best meal out on the town. The decor was a bit stuffy and the service was a bit slow, but the food was definitely worth it. Our waitress was very helpful pairing wines with the menu offerings. The host was also very knowledgeable about... More
