The best Entrecote steak in Oslo

Went back to Trancher after it had been a few years since the last visit. Expectations was high. The place was the same, the menu was the same and the food was the same - awesome! The slow-cooked entrecote is an explosive taste of real meat, and in my opinion the best you can get in Oslo. We had... read more

If you love meat and especially entrecote, then this is the place. They only have entrecote on the menu and it is perfectly made. Great place if you are a meat-lover.

If you into meat you're get good value for the money here. They serve great tender entrecôte and a lot of rustic extras which go very well together with the meat. Great service as well.

I expected that the entrecote was tender since they specialized on entrecote. So I was a bit disappointed. I have a sous vide machine back home and I know I could make it more tender. Anyway it was nice to go out and enjoy. The cake I ordered was good. Actually they don't have a cake in their menu but... More

This place is just great! Nothing more nothing less! They only serve entrecote for main. It's slow cooked fore several hours. The standard is medium/medium rare. You can get it cooked longer if you prefer. The entrecote is either between 130gr - 150gr or 230gr - 250gr. You get to choose your own sides. We were a group of ten... More

We went to Trancher as a sunday family dinner with our 2 years old daughter. Our mistake, we should of check this before getting there, the place do not suit children at all. No baby chair, no space, no changing area, no food suitable for the youngest.......and of course, a staff which is not really helpful. The food is good... More

The steak was a bit cold (50C?), which was a bit unusual for me, but I think this is the correct temperature. The plates was heated to compensate for this. Great extras which should be ordered to the steaks. Very good service and nice prices.

Vegetarians, stay away! This place is for meat-lovers only, and if its meat you love you will never want to leave Trancher. Trancher is one of my absolute favorite restaurants in Oslo and I have eaten here many many times. They only have one main dish and it is the most delicious, mouth watering, tongue orgasmic piece of slow-cooked entrecote.... More

If you like meat, this is the place to be! The food is great, they cook the meat on low temperature for quite a long time, which makes it very tender. Wine and side dishes were very good as well.
