Good food, but too noisy upstairs!

We had reserved a table far in advance, but not specified where we wanted to sit. The upstairs room they sat us in suddenly became extremely noisy after the arrival of two large groups. Downstairs it was still quiet, though not empty. I also ate downstairs there a few years ago, when it was full... read more

Lovely building and lovely French bistro type food: snails, langoustine and rare steak. Good wine too. However as always seems to be the case in Oslo, food reasonably priced but alcohol really bumps the bill up.

Went here for lunch a Saturday. You sort of need to know where it is, if not you will likely walk past it. We ate a steak sandwich and the food was excellent with very affordable prices. This place should be packed. I will definitely be back!

The loveliest restaurant for New Year hard to find any fault. Catered for a fussy teenager and gluten-free, pescetarian me. Staff charming, environment relaxed and food some of the best I've ever eaten.

We were two couples on Xmas shopping in Oslo and wanted a nice dinner at the end of the day. Nice staff and good service. The restaurant was almost packed due to all the businesspeople having their "Julebord", but we got our food in time and had an good experience. Blanche is worth a visit!

We dropped in for a warm lunch during Christmas shopping. Lovely friendly French/ Norwegian staff in this "French Bistro". We ended up with Champagne an French onion soup followed by a great chocolate fondant. A really pleasant meal in busy times. We will be back for more. PS: they are supposed to serve the best entrecôte in town.

Nothing worth their prices ! Noisy, with no space in between tables. "Garlic gratinated snails with mushrooms" means they just add a tiny little piece of mushroom on the snail's stick. "Duck confit on Brussel sprouts, onion tart and foie gras sauce" means an onion tart which is the size of a coin, Brussel sprouts are very bad cooked (so... More

This is my favorite restaurant in Oslo! I have never had a better dinner experience in my life! The service was 100%, the personal made you feel special. Every bite of the food was exceptional, and we got the best wine recommondation. They know what they are doing here! totally worth the money!
