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.

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 -...

This is one of Oslos finest restaurants. The menu contains traditional international dishes, made with a Michelin touch.

Restaurant Feinschmecker lost their one Michelin star but do NOT let that fool you. Lars Erik still serves excellent food in a very quite & calming atmosphere and their service is the best in class. Great sommeliers too!

I ate at this restaurant on Valentines Day 2012 and had a pleasant stay at Feinschmecker. We ate delicious food, several courses. The atmosphere in the restaurant was great and the service was excellent! We requested a special dessert and that was not a problem at all. I will recommend this restaurant to friends and others!
