We visited Bagatelle in November 2013, immediately after reading a raving review in Aftenposten. I seriously question the reviewers' previous restaurant experience. This is a very good dining experience, no doubt about that, but the price does not match the experience. This is far too expensive. Too much (to my liking, anyway) stuff served from ice cubes, pebbles, general fuzz... More

Going to Bagatelle can become fantastic, ultimate gastronomic experience if you follow some rules. 1. Be prepared to pay - it is VERY expensive (set menu only, 1400 NOK per person, pairing wine menu - extra 1100 NOK, pairing juice menu - extra 600 NOK). 2. Be prepared to spend there at least 4 - 5 hours (the menu turns... More

A few years since I dined there. My oldest daughter Ann Jeanette worked part time there at the time. She invited her Dad and me to dinner !!! Exclusive dining. About 9 courses. The service was excellent. Most of the staff then were french. They explained every dish and the wine waiters knowledge og wines was exceptional. I will never... More

Had a full menu and the way the food was presented was eyecatching and creative. The service was excellent and the food was good. I am not a regular visitor of haute cuisine restaurants and therefore my comparison might be wrong, but most of the dishes were very well prepared and real experience for the taste buds. If you take... More

Our second visit to this restaurant. Service was excellent and friendly but unfortunately the food wasn't that good. Some courses were good but overall the taste just wasn't there. They has a new chef in april this year. My guess is they will loose their Michelin star next year if they don't improve.

I had not been there since ages ago. Reopened after lengthy period, now with new management/staff. We were curious: posh style or cool? In fact posh and cool! Awaiting at our table: a small brown envelope, sealed, and contaning an intricately wrapped menue,which at least I needed help to unfold (untangle rather..;)) Then started our 16 courses, all presented in...

Take your time and enjoy a wonderful tasting menu. Each course an event by itself! Complementing the food is a wonderful wine list and very helpful staff. I had the "Surf and Turf" tasting menu and it did not disappoint. Every dish was incredibly presented and wonderful in every way. The halibut and snow crab was complemented with a wonderful... More

After several visits to Bagatelle over the years, I revisited the restaurant with a new chef. I had some great expectations, but was a bit disappointed. Firstly, the premises was very cold. The food was generally good, but most of the courses contained too high acidity. After paying NOK 5.000 for two persons with a wine menu is a bit... More

Bagatelle has a great history, having had 2 star in the Michelin guide and been a Relaix & Chateaux listed restaurant. For more than a decade it was rated as the best restaurant in Norway. Then the chef left and the restaurant was closed for some time due to a hefty renovation. I have visited the restaurant several times since... More
