This busy, sophisticated and comfortable restaurant manages at the same time to be a superb and causal dining experience. The executive chef works the room throughout the evening and is a lovely, engaging person. The wait staff in one of the best such teams we have experienced--mistresses of swarm service!! This place would be considered outstanding in any major city.... More

We just loved this place It's a really intimate restaurant, with the owner in the kitchen. The service was impeccable and the food as well. It almost feels like your in someones cosy living room, with staff waiting on you. Unique experience, I would highly recommend a visit.

My wife and I spent 10 days traveling to Oslo, Bergen and Stavanger and agreed that Hos Thea was the best restaurant on our trip. The restaurant is intimate and comfortable, the service was excellent and the food was outstanding. We'll definitely go back next time we're in Oslo.

From beginning to end we were graciously welcomed--and by the fantastic chef too. We were fortunate to get a reservation for our first night in Oslo. Every course was superb! Not to be missed.
