Nice refuge on a snowy evening

With no reservation, my husband and I almost didn't go inside as there were so many people milling about outside. The restaurant was busy but they quickly took us to a table for two. The service was excellent. Warm focaccia bread (complimentary) was brought out with a delicious sundried tomato... read more

One of the best restaurants in Oslo. Staff realy tries to please the guest and they succeed in that. Food quality is very good and there is sufficient choice on the menu. Special requests are no problem for the chef.

I came a bit early as member of a group, and was guided to table where I should wait for the others. In fact some had already arrived, and were sitting on the other side of the wall. Wine was served quickly, before the menu came. I went for mussels. Tasty, but some shells were broken. This might be a... More

This is our favorite restaurant in Oslo. The food is great, the atmosphere is good and the staff are nice and good at their job. The location is in the heart of Oslo at Rådhusplassen, near Nationaltheatret and Aker Brygge. The prices are affordable, ang you get quite large portions of food. This place is good for couples, families, business... More

Came for á nice meal after along day... Got rushed service with terrible attitude. The owner/manager walking around with grim face. I like fine Italian dining but this is NOT the place. Food is obviously headed in microwave with hot and cold part in gratinert avocado then the pasta was raw!!??

A soft romantic atmosphere with food presentation equal to five star restaurants. The staff is very friendly and unpretentious, which finishes this experience with five stars The Seafood Soup and Fried Catfish dinner was great. The catfish was not battered and could not detect grease, which concerned me with the name of the dish.

This is one of the places in Oslo that has great food, a friendly staff and not too crazy prices. It's Norway, but still. In comparison to many others this is a great place. The pizza is excellent here. Definitely better than at Olivia's. The pasta too in my opinion.

After touring the very interesting Oslo City Hall, I walked out the front door and found a little shopping strip with several restaurants. I was looking for a Norwegian place that seemed to be popular with locals. Prima Fila was the place! It was crowded with local people, but they were happy to seat me, and the menu had English...

We had dinner at this restaurant in the government center area. Stumbled on it by accident. Unlike other reviewers we found the staff to be helpful and friendly. The food was good--I had pork roast with cream sauce and potatoes and my partner had a huge "Caesar" salad with chicken and bacon. Both were very tasty. Bruschetta was also good.... More
