We visited Fauna in August, and it was a great visit. Very good food and good service. However, I am surprised they have a Michelin star, and I don't consider it good value. For that price I would expect better service and much more diversity in the menu. I felt most meals had similar tastes (dill, herring, potato...) and the... More

A memorable meal. A highlight of our trip to Norway. The atmosphere (it was full), the service and the quality of the food was all above reproach. We had the 5 course dinner which was very well selected and beautifully presented. Small but adequate portions. We accompanied with a wine of our choice. Expensive but worth it. Would definitely recommend.

Outstanding meal. We did the five course menu. Like most of Oslo the meal was expensive but worth it. Good wine list.

Had a 7 course dinner here with a group of people from work and we all very much enjoyed the food and the wine. The wine package was very good. We dressed casually and were not out of place. The service was good and the pacing of the courses was just right. The fish courses were truly excellent. The place... More

This Michelin star restaurant did not live up to my expectations. I had too high expectations due to the massive positive media focus they got after the Michelin award. First of all it was crowded and cramped. There were simply too many guests for the staff to handle. The personal follow-up and service was below Michelin standard. On top of... More

We were a party of four at this Michelin-starred restaurant whilst in Oslo for a long concert weekend in May. Considering that Oslo regularly ends up on the "top five most expensive cities in the world" list I consider it a fairly reasonable eatery, with New Nordic cuisine to a high standard. There is a five course menu, but you... More

Taking into consideration the outrageous restaurant prices in Norway, Fauna is presently hard to beat. For such high quality cooking, champagne, six meal course, wine package, coffee and a digestive for less than NOK 1800,- is very good value for the money. Admittedly, not all the wines came across as perfect matches (notably a Long Island Riesling was quite disappointing),... More

When you go to a Michelin Star place – there are very high expectations which is normal. In general, interesting place to try some new and special food. But new favorite? No, taking into consideration the value and the amount of food you get there, it’s quite expensive (not the most expensive in Oslo, but still very expensive). You will... More

This one of the best restaurants in Oslo. Good location. Made the best out of local products. And perfectly prepared. Absolutely worth a visit. Going back for my third visit this year next week.
