Fantastic place but little bit too expensive :)

We had great experience and we eat great food here. It is little bit expensive, but everything is expensive in norway because of their high standard.

I always take family here when they visit. They serve good quality traditional food at an affordable price and with one of the best views over looking the entire fjord and city plus the building is beautiful of the old timber style but, even grander and with dragons carved in the roof rafters you just can't go wrong at this...

When we arrived there was no welcoming, we were advised to find our own room upstairs. we found a free room where the tables were... More

This is one of my favourite locations. I've always been here during the snowy months and it looks stunning. The heavy old timbered building is amazing and internally is a maze of rooms to dine at or simply take a beer or coffee. When the log fire in the main hall is ablaze, to describe this place as cosy would... More

If the location was't enough, the amazing food is surely a reason to hop on a train and visit this incredible restaurant. You can spend a lazy afternoon admiring the great view and enjoying the best apple pie you'll ever get.

Came here on a Sunday by tram. Be prepared for a 30 minute journey from the central station. It was a beautiful view as you climb the mountain through the suburbs of Oslo. Upon arrival you can be seated in the main dining on the first floor or go directly to the cafe. I recommend going to the cafe and... More

For someone from the UK, the menu looked a little daunting but local contacts helped to guide us and the chef made excellent recommendations for accompanying wine. Highly recommended and would choose to return. the road trip itself is worth doing, past the ski jump and to end with views across the city and surrounds.

Visited here for a business meal in January 2015 and can only describe the food as amazing. The venue is excellent and packed in history - if you get a chance ask someone to give you a talk about the history of the place. Would recommend this whole heartedly.

This is a review of the cafe. Both are in the same building... and the only place to eat at Frognerseteren. I always eat here while tobogganing down Korketrekkeren. The place is usually packed and if you have the time, you should try to get a table at the scond floor. The view is stunning and worth the wait. If... More
