Dropped in as we were "a little hungry" after a two hour busride from Sandefjord. Ended up shearing 4 courses with my wife, all of them of impeccable quality. Pinot Noir wine by the glass at exact right temperature. Booked a table for this evening before we go home as well. Looking forward to it:-)

A quaint restaurant in the hip part of Oslo. Charming with a welcoming feeling. We had the fish and it was excellent with good wine paring. The desserts was unfortunately not to our liking. We would like to rate Le Benjamin as a 3.5, but the staff and the main dish are worth a 4.

Lovely place. Knowledgeable and friendly service. Great food. Recommend cauliflower soup (really amazing), fish of the day and cheese. House wine also great.

Good atmosphere and food! Located in the area of grunerløkka, a nice area for a stroll. The food is really good. We have been here several times without being dissapointed.

Oslo is beyond expensive so once you decide to walk into an eatery you pretty much can't look at the price column. That said--Le Benjamin is a nice place, good food, and good value for money. They have nightly specials. I had a very good pasta. Beer and wine are reasonable. People come for their birthdays....the bar fills up for... More

Saturday afternoon we tried to get a table for that night, but they didn't have an opening until 10 pm. That time was a little too late for us, so we went Sunday at 7 pm. It was our last night in Oslo, so we decided to splurge. We had a cute little table against the wall. Across from us... More

We went there with a couple of friends last Saturday and since I love French food my expectations were high. We were welcomed warm-heartedly and our waiter for the night was very friendly and committed. Apart from some small mistakes he really made us enjoy our time at this restaurant. The interior is cozy, but the seating quite uncomfortable. The... More
