My wife and myself spent a great evening in this restaurant celebrating our 31 years of marriage. Fantastic food, service and picturesque views from the location. Thank you, Mariusz!

First things first: you will starve as a vegetarian. You would think, a restaurant with Michelin stars would be exceptional in every way - this is not the case with Grefenskollen restaurant. As long as the kitchen serves norwegian food, vegetarians (or even worse: vegans) will sit with nothing else than garnishes. My employer organises regularly our christmas party there.... More

We ate at the Grefsenkollen with a party of colleagues on the Nation Day of Norway in May. The restaurant and the surroundings could not have been better for a summery warm May evening. Located on small fisher island, we were transported there with a boat. The magnificent achipelago is right there by the restaurant. The food was very good... More

You can visit this restaurant in the summertime, or in the wintertime, the view is just as fantastic!

Me and my husband were there today. Loved the place and the food. Top quality. As for the service, the waiters don't follow up with the clients and you get different people all the time. One spoke in Danish which I'm not obliged to understand since I live in Norway. The pizzas came without napkins or cutlery. The worst was... More

On a sunny day in April we decided to take our lunch at up at Grefsenkollen. From the moment we contacted the staff until the bill was paid we experienced the most unprofessional service so far in Oslo. The staff gave us misleading and outright false information. The best part was the waiter coming to the table with our food.... More
