I first looked at the menu outside on Monday evening and thought it was a bit expensive knowing that good food and Norwegians usually not comes hand in hand. By Wednesday I had maid up my mind and decided to give it a try, I do regret I did not paid a visit already on Monday. Then I first walked... More

This place does have a great atmosphere and a good beer selection. I had sausage and mashed potatoes, which was pretty good, but there were only about 4 options for main courses and 3 for starters. The beer is also quite expensive, but probably not much more than most places in Oslo. I'd probably go back for a beer, but... More

The only problem was that the waitress just gave me one menu (Xmas menu) and after we have dinner the bring another one with a lot of... More

I recently visited this restaurant on a business trip with a colleague. The restaurant is fairly central and easy to find. When you first walk inside it is very inviting and the staff friendly. As other reviewers have said there is a great selection of beers. However the food menu is limited. As this was my first trip to Norway... More

I went there with my parents and had a great experience. The food was great, the beer even better, and we were quite lucky with service as well. The waitress would always come to us with a smile on her face. It is a great place to go.

We got evening business talks with colleagues there. Food it's tasty. Alcohol like in most Norway bars and restaurants it's very expensive, because of state monopol on alcohol. In this place we got good service. Nice atmosphere. Good views outside and inside.

Our first meal in Oslo, this restaurant is a few feet to the left of the "Best Western" where we stayed. The food was very good and the prices were reasonably especially by Oslo standards. The waitress was cordially and she made us feel very welcome and at ease. I highly recommend this place.

Not quite shore why people are cheering so much for this place - it is not likely we will come back, in spite of good food. I reserved the table in advance. At our arrival, we were ignored, nobody came to meet us. We waited for a while, then tried to get attention at the bar. We got a table... More
