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

The waitress was just attentive enough to guide us through the delightful food. I had today´s fish and creme brule. Perfectly made and I would say a quality I did not expected due... More

A great French restaurant with classic dishes. The grilled entrecote was excellent. The starter was a lobster and shrimp salad. Good enough but not memorable. The creme brulee was really good with the pistacchio nuts!

We had a great meal at this French inspired bistro in Grunerløkka in Oslo. The area in it self is a little run down, but one of the hippest places to be in Oslo. We had 3 courses wich all were above expectations, especially the king crab starter. The restaurant deserves the good review it got in Aftenposten (newspaper With... More
