Great view, ok food but pricey

Great view, ok food but pricey. A place every tourist should visit, we visit it some times during the summer and winter.

Har spist her flere ganger og er alltid like fornøyd. Varmmaten som de servere er strålende og de ansatte er alltid høflige og behjelpelig. Eneste som jeg føler er negativt er prisen på det de servere. Maten er noe dyr. /Have visited and eaten here several times. I'm always satisfied with the food. The hot meals they serve is excellent... More

The self service cafe provided the amazing view of the Oslo fjord, the pie+coffee = 90 NOK, totally enjoyed it. The place is kind of far to reach, but worth it. The restaurant may be overpriced

We stopped there after visiting the ski jumping hill and the view was wonderful. This place is right at the end of the subway line Nr. 1. We were there in the afternoon but tasted some of their food too and it was delicious.

Restaurant is not representative of Oslo as a gourmet-city. Boring and uninventive, and seriously overpriced. Stuffy and pretentious, but scenery is stunning. Cafe is overpriced and average.

It may not be the best restaurant in termos of Norwegian cuisine (although it is just delicious), and the signature apple pie is overrated, but, man, what a view...

This place is a 20 minutes drive from Oslo Centre. Its a old traditional house with classic Norwegian food. Its like a cantina where you pick your own food and pay at the counter. If its sunny you can sit outside, and if its cold you have to find a table inside. Its not possible to order table and its... More

The restaurant has a pleasant location but in my opinion is overpriced. Maybe I can recommend it for the non vegetarians but for the veggies I would suggest to go for others down in Holmenkollen or downwards.

Very nice location. Especially nice view from the top floor. Good atmosphere. Traditional - in a good way. One cannot go there without trying the "eplekake" (applecake), but maybe share one as it is big.
