We were in Oslo for only a few days and this restaurant was recommended by the locals. Although not having a reservation we were made extremely welcome and seated immediately. We chose the Chef's Menu and were not disappointed! Each course complimented the previous and was just the right amount to be enjoyed. Matching wines are also offered but we... More

We were the first guests at the restaurant at 18.00 on saturday. They were still placing the tables. Although it felt a bit awkward being the only guests, the staff made us feel very welcomed. The restaurant was very elegantly decorated and the atmosphere was warm and relaxed. We chose the seven course menu, Taste of Feinschmecker. We have read... More

Very welcoming. Service was impeccable, well timed with little waiting but never rushed. Got the Chef menu with wine pairing. They topped off glasses, and the wines were not only paired well but we're interesting in themselves. The moscato with dessert was unique on its own, especially. Everything was first ate delicious and presentation. The turbot was great, but the... More

Feinschmecker had a Michelin star for more than a decade, and could easily receive it again. Focus is on well-tested and high quality courses (ie not overly creative/surprising). Great experience, attentive staff and good wine selection. Very good atmosphere. Try it and you shouldn't be disappointed.

We enjoyed the evening, even if we had a feeling that the waitress was very bussy and had not time to give us the extra little chat/comments that makes you feel beeing taken care of.... More

After having experienced a perfect evening at hos Thea the day before, my expectations for Feinschmecker were very high, too high I assume. The half dozen oysters were alright, close to freezing temperature and somehow not as fresh as he ones I ate 2 days before in a restaurant close to the harbor. I repeat they were alright (not bad).... More

Had a very nice dinner at this restaurant. Food was tasty, and the wine menu was specially tailored for each course. Suitable for business, celebration, friends, dates and people with a lot of money who like good food.

from the limited amount of reviews, I can gather that this restaurant is still a well-kept secret in Oslo. we had white asparagus with hollandaise sauce - delicate and superb; fried foie grass - melts in your mouth; grilled crayfish tail - you will go back again and again for this one; wild boar in cranberry red wine reduction -...
