Well...I thought I had tasted a brilliant entrecôte before. But...erm...no. This one was on another level. I'm definitely going back sometime. This is a small but cozy, intimate and enjoyable restaurant that will bring you a brilliant entrecôte in three different sizes. I have never eaten an... read more

The concept is easy: it's entrecôte or nothing. I don't mind a minimalistic concept, when the food is good. You choose how thick a slice of meat you want, choose a sauce for free, and a side order (which you get charged for). The meat is slowly roasted as a whole piece, then kept at 55 degrees. It is tender... More

The restaurant is very cosy but very minimal space. Food is ok but a bit pricy. Menu is alright but not very extensive. Good for couples but not child friendly restaurant because of the little space.

Having just left the restaurant. I am writing the review with the sweet taste of the complimentary desert wine on my taste buds. Upon entering, without a reservation, We were unfortunately turned away for an hour or so. However, the woman took down my number and called me back as soon as a table was available. She recommended a local... More

Went here with family as this place has been regarded as one of the better places to eat beef in Oslo. Trancher serves entrecote and that is basically the only thing the have on the menu pluss some starters and desserts. The beef was well prepared and very tender, the sauces were tasty as well. However we were not enjoying... More

The restaurant is rather small and can get a little noisy. Definitively try to go for the second service (20:00) so you don't get rushed. The food is everything other reviewers have said and more. We were a large group so we just asked them to give us a sample of everything. I would be in trouble if I had... More
