Great food and surroundings but slow service

Having been on an excellent guided tour of the operahouse (book ahead, 100NOK for adults, 60NOK for students) we were needing a quick lunch before getting the train to Flam. If you have done the tour you get a 10% discount. We each had a fish or meat main which were all excellent and we paid 243NOK... read more

The location, the view, the outdoor seating and the ambiance are all good reasons to visit this restaurant. Perfect for a luncheon or in connection with an event on the Opera scene. The service is friendly - bearing in mind they are serving a lot of tables and guests who are sometimes in a hurry (with a ticket to a... More

Having just arrived in Oslo decided to try the Opera House for a restaurant and we were not disappointed. Had a lovely pre-show meal with good service. When the performance started we were the only 2 left! Lovely views across the harbour - good choice as we knew nothing about restaurants in Oslo. Not cheap but then nothing is in... More

Daughter and dad decided to have a lunch downtown. After a chilly walk around the town we decided to enter inside the Opera on a Saturday. Not many people at the restaurant, so we were given a window table. It is a nice view towards the fjord. We went for fish soup and Cesar salad. The portions were large, the... More

Really enjoyable restaurant in the beautiful structure of the Opera House and also by the sea. The food is very good. Worth trying the Norwegian Taste that gives you small tastes of Norwegian food.

We ate at the Restauranthuset Operaen when we visited this last June. It was lovely to exit the opera and find a lovely view of the water, and tasty food right there.

There were 7 of us, on our own and part of a tour. It is near the Thon Opera Hotel, which is where we were staying. We were led to believe that the restaurant was more a cafeteria based on what the local tour guide told us, but that was closed, so we decided to have a more expensive and... More

Went here on 17th May. We had booked a window table however despite multiple discussions with the Maitre de and the presence of empty tables, we were declined this. I found the service and courtesy of the senior staff disappointing and quite rude. The serving staff were excellent, however the starters were cold.

I recently ate here for a business meal. Overall, it was an excellent setting and catered well for bigger business sittings. I most impressed with their ability to adapt given that a number of our guests arrived late. They were able to accommodate them and re-arrange the sitting such that our mains all arrived together. However, at times I felt... More
