This is a delight, literally, just across the street from the Hotel Bristol. It has the warm cosy feel of a beer keller, and is clearly adored by the throngs of Norwegians who gather here for a few beers, some nibbles or a more substantial meal. The selection of tap beer is good but the bottle selection of craft beers... More

They have over 250 beers; ask the staff for guidance. I was about to have Odin's Tipple but was advised on Skumring... Much better! The sausages were delicious. Will... More

When you arrive in Oslo and want some traditional food and beer with a friendly and helpful staff, stop here first. The food is excellent...we had the sausages and mash and it was by far the best meal we had the entire time. The beer selection is almost overwhelming, but the staff can point you towards the best Nordic beer... More
