Great new spot in Oslo, focuses on barbecued food, with unpretentious dishes such as entrecote, grilled langoustines, and foie gras, all served with no nonsense sides.

Great food, could use better service

The food at St. Lars was really good. Entrees better than starters. We had reservations but restaurant was not crowded. Lamb, Pork and Fish were all good. Waiter was really nice and explained menu as it was not in English. The only problem with this restaurant is that we had to constantly ask for... read more

My girlfriend and I visited in August after a recommendation from a local oslo resident. The waiter was great, taking the time to explain the menu to us in English. We ordered bone marrow, oysters, mussels, horse tartar, lamb and finally chocolate ganache with sorbet. We had a few special wishes for the food and all were carried out perfectly.... More

Went here exclusively for the Côte de Boeuf. I have always dreamt of a Norwegian restaurant that manage to push steak to the next level. Reviews and marketing looked promising, except for a few bad remarks here and there. I was a bit skeptical after reading the negative reviews, but tok a chance anyways. My reference point on meat is... More

Outstanding, very tender beef, also slow-cooked lamb and grilled fish. They are happy to place a magnum bottle of wine on the table, and charge you by the centimeters you consume (!) A young, informal atmosphere

Nice place for informal occasions when you are looking for an extraordinary experience in food and wine. Leave as much as you dare in the hands of the staff and you will not be disappointed. And don't be fooled by the look of the manager - he is one of the more experienced and knowledgeable in Oslo when it comes... More

Easy to find the resturant at right by the Bislett stadium. The food was excelent. We were a team of friends, and covered most of the menu. Everyone was very satisfied with the food. A little dark by the table, but the tables was equipped with a flashlight to make it easy to read the menu. Only negative was that... More

Dinner here on Sat 11th April 2015. Waiter suggested "entecote" that has been stored or hanged for 4 weeks. Sounded good so went for that. Got it and looked ok, but after tasting discovered that it was burned on one side. Called waiter to let him know but was advised that this was how they did it there. He was... More

It is not easy to get a good steak in Norway, but the côte de bœuf at St. Lars is simply excellent. The chef prepares it for two people in one piece. Charred on the outside and juicy, tender and full of taste inside, the competent waiter carved it at the table. It came with a home made bearnaise and... More

Went to this with colleagues in March 2015. The 36 hours onion soup was great and the slow-cooked meat was fantastic. Great bistro with a home made feeling. Honest and tasty food. Service was good and not extraordinary. Recommend this restaurant.

Had the most tender lamb I've ever had! It was a true delight. Served with amazing mashed potatoes and vegetables. The waiters was really nice as well and gave us the best service. Good wine tips and explanations. We also had the cod which was just as good. Perfectly cooked and really good sides and sauce. Would recommend this restaurant... More
