An incredible moment... Out of time... What a view, all these fjords.. We were lucky, the snow was at the rendez-vous for this Forrest experience! It gives something more... The chalet was beautiful, we decided to go to the restaurant and were not disappointed.. The salmon tartines were really good and we had an astonished view. We visited all rooms... More

As a stop off for skiers in the winter, it offers some hardy food and hot drinks during the day with a view down onto Oslo in the fjord below. Recommend getting lunch here before or after a forest walk in Frognerseteren itself. Try the waffles.

Historic restaurant dating back to 1867. You have the option of a served meal or go through a limited selection serving (menu plaque in English) that is quicker and much less expensive. Situated about 1 km up the hill from the Holmenkollveien ski jump, at least stop by for a hot beverage that you can carry outside and soak in... More

I arrived during lunch time and was only offered the a la carte option for dining. I could see beautiful table settings for later dining. I got a tray then waited for an assistant to help me with my selection. I have found Norway to be friendly with lots of gluten free choices. They had potatoes, puréed peas, patties of... More

Food is ok but nothing special, however, the views are spectacular as long as it's a clear day so well worth a visit even if you just have a sandwich and dessert.

Bad over priced food, over crowded and bad atmosphere. Very rude staff. Even charged money for tap water! Scandalous that such a beautiful tourist venue behave like that and serve such sub-standard food at such ridiculous prices. When we finished our lunch, they cleared our plates making it clear that they wanted us to leave although some were still finishing... More

Just a few steps from the end of subway 1 you will find this restaurant. To be honest it isn't the cheapest place to go, which means is really expensive for foreigners. But the quality offered is superb and view is fantastic!

We went here after the Holmenkollen Ski Museum and Tower and loved the beautiful Restaurant and the view. The apple pie and rhubarb juice was really good. The flowers and surrounding farm buildings were lovely. We would have liked to eat a meal there if we had not had breakfast a short time before. Do not miss this stop.

Took the T-Bane to the end of the Holmenkollen Line. Walked down the gravel path to the Frognerseteren Restaurant and Café. The day was cool and rainy. We enjoyed the warmth of the old chalet interior and the roaring fire in the centre of the eating area. A great outdoor eating area, but unfortunately was wet due to the rainstorm... More
