We went up to this place after hearing a lot of things about it. We took the T-bane (Metro 1) and got off at Frognerseteren which was the end of the line. My daughter and I were the only people left in the train when we stepped out. We only had a short walk from the station to reach the... More

We were taken there by a resident of Oslo that we were staying with. Loved the view and the apple cake was wonderful. The cake was all that we had. Great day to sit outside and enjoy the weather.

Nice place to have lunch. Food is good and view of Oslo City from here is stunning. Highly recommended. We stopped here for late lunch and thoroughly enjoyed it.

I went with some friends during a weekend in Oslo, looking for traditional dishes. It's definitely the right place since we found reindeer fillet ,local fishes, traditional deserts. Be just very careful cause you can eat for very different prices in this place ,since there is a self service and a more fancy restaurant. We chose to try the hot... More

After completing our visit to the Ski Museum our Norwegian relatives took us to this wonderful historical restaurant up the mountain from the Museum. We only had coffee and pastries as we took a short rest break. Everything about the Frognerseteren was delightful. The location gave us a great view of Oslo and the area, colorful decorations in the restaurant... More

Norway is not the place to be for gastronomic delight. However, this one place fits well in the high standards of appetite pleasing business. First, the location is simply amazing. You will have the scenic view of the Oslo city from above. Totally no obstruction, and as Norway is a fairly clean country you can really see the panorama without... More

We took a train to the end of the line caught a coffee and some cake. It was late afternoon, the sun was setting and place was packed. We sat down with some friends and just enjoyed the view. If nothing else, head this way for the view. This place is on my itinerary next time I visit Oslo.

The journey on the number 1 t-bane is a must do when in Oslo. The journey is about 30mins and takes you through the suburbs of Oslo and up into the hills. It stops by the Holmenkollen ski Jump but carry on till the end to Frognerseteren. Just a wee walk from the station is the restaurant and cafe. The... More

We travelled on the train out of Oslo until the end of the line up into the mountains then walked 10 minutes to find the restaurant. Lovely selection of cakes with open fires burning. It cost about £15 for a latte, juice and one cake but as a special treat it was worth it as the views and setting is... More
