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

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

Without a doubt the best place in Oslo for a steak. You select your own sides and how you'd like your steak. The menu is as following: regular or large steak. You don't come here for the salad. No fuzz, just great steaks.

We’re not steakhouse people but were intrigued by the reviews of Trancher, a small and intimate restaurant in Grunerlakka, a short Uber ride from our Toyen apartment. Only one major menu decision: a small or larger entrecote (ribeye), cut about ½” thick and slow-oven broiled. Select a sauce (Bernaise for me, creamy pepper sauce for her) and sides (we had... More

A great place for steak and reasonable prices for Oslo. Always a safe bet. They have appetizer, steak and dessert. No long menu, just good steaks

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
