cosy and friendly

Once the taxi driver found it (just round the corner from the street address) we were very warmly welcomed into this small and cosy restaurant - very friendly and efficient staff throughout. The atmosphere was very pleasant, buzzing without being overly loud for such a small venue, and the food was... read more

After reading the 'great' reviews about Hos Thea, we decided to eat there. Actually since last Dec. but we finally got the chance to eat there after a long waiting time!... in Feb! The first thing we noticed was the warm welcome from the staff and the owner. The restaurant opens everyday yet seems to be fully booked every single... More

Went here to celebrate both my mom and girlfriend's birthdays and was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. The staff was friendly and presented both wine and food accurately while maintaining a casual demeanor. The meal started with a delicious pumpkin soup followed by three wonderful scallops, perfectly cooked and quite a generous portion. The first main was... More

You can for sure get excellent food in more restaurants in Oslo, but the combination of the friendliness of Sergio (the owner) and his staff make our visit at Hos Thea OUTSTANDING. From the very moment we opened the door to the restaurant we felt welcome - more like old friends than customers. We had the six courses menu and... More

This restaurant locates in a premium residential area, it seems embassies are around(too dark to prove).We took tram to get their but in fact you can get... More

My wife & I truly loved our dining experience at hos Thea. Firstly, the food was spectacular with each dish prepared with deep attention to flavors and presentation. But what made the meal truly special and memorable was the amazing, dedicated and kind service. Over the course of our evening, we spoke extensively to our 3 collaborating waitresses and learned...

One of the best service minded resturants I have ever been to. I have visited many resturants through my life, but "Hos Thea" gave me the full satisfaction package. Magnificent service and good food. Thanks for a great experience.

Situated in a more quiet area of Oslo, this is the perfect location for this type of restaurant. We tried the 4 course menu, and it was nice. The location offers a cosy setting for dinner. The waitress were not so tentative of us, and did not have much knowledge about the wine, hence the 4 star from me.

On my fifth trip to Hos Thea I wanted to leave a quick review to highlight the consistently wonderful food, amazing service, cosy and intimate atmosphere and passion that the staff have for what they do. The menu is short, creative and every dish is perfectly executed. The matched wines are exquisite, and if you don't go for the food-with-wine... More
