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

We could not find our original restaurant so we popped in here. The waitress was offered us a table within minutes even though we had no booking. 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

I have eaten here several times and love this french restaurant. The food is amazing and I think this is my favourite restaurant in Oslo. The prises are about average, but the quality of the food is very high. In my mind le Benjamin is so much better then it's more popular neighbours.

I visited Le Benjamin with some friends. It was a great night out. They have the best cheese fondue in Oslo. The place is pretty popular because we had to wait till a table came up. The place was full to the brim. The staff was very warm and the service was excellent. The presentation of the food was impeccable.... More
