Mediocre bar - excellent restaurant

Except from the serviceminded and sweet bartender the bar itself was quite ordinary, to put it politely. The restaurant on the other hand was tasty, cosy and kept in an old (Victorian style?)! The food was exquisite though not abundant. The staff was invisibly present, the service was impeccable... read more

With an hour to kill I ate lunch here a bit after mid day. A great shrimp sandwitch and dessert. Maybe the best shrimp sandwitch I've had. The staff was very friendly and service minded, and helped me with some messages, since my phone had been crushed by the sidewalk and was being repaired. Highly recommended!

The first impression was that the restaurant was a little bit run down (old carpet). Second impression was very negative: when we arrived, the manager (we assumed it was the manager), just pointed to table saying: 'that's your table'. After that we saw him goig around all tables, having a chat with the guests. He did not come to our... More

The old city hall building. Charming atmosphere. The food is delicious. Had the seafood soup and a delicious monkfish dish. The lamb was quite good as well. Our waitress was very good, helpful and attentive.

Recommended by our hotel, we had our last dinner in Oslo here. We had had a few meals on the colorful and energetic waterfront already, and this was an ideal balance to give us a dose of old world charm. The meal was very good on average (one person's lamb was not spectacular, but the other person's roast pork was... More

This is an attractive restaurant in an historic building. Couple the venue with great food, service and wine provides a superb dining experience. Wait staff are attentive, provide appropriate descriptions to food enquiry and knowledgeable on wine choice. A wonderful experience for business, romance, special occasion or a casual night out with friends. Thoroughly enjoyed.
