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.

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

As others have said, the food is good and the views over Oslo are breathtaking. The best views from the restaurant are from the window seats on the upper floor. The only thing I ate on this trip was the apple pie but that was very good indeed and no more expensive than anywhere else in Oslo.

Made the trip up to Frognerseteren after stopping at Holmekollen. The view from this place has to be seen to be believed. On a clear day you could see a great distance out through the fjord. The cafe was reasonably priced and the food was good. The hot chocolate and coffee was a welcome relief from the cold outside. On... More

I forgot what a gem Frognerseteren is. We had been out playing in the snow with the kids, and as traffic was bad we decided to kill some time at Frognerseteren. First: the view. It is AMAZING. You can see all of Oslo. Summer, winter, daytime, nighttime, it is awesome. Second: this place is history. Old traditionally built wooden buildings.... More

Nice looking restaurant with a great view. Food was pretty tasty. People should be ready to pay a little extra for delicacies.
