Impressive French touch and excellent food and service!

I just want to go back and try more courses from the tempting menu. You enter from the busy Oslo street and find immediately a nice atmosphere with a hint of garlic and France inside the restaurant entrance. The mirrors on the wall, the waiters, the kitchen in the background, the newspaper-text on... read more

I participated in a workshop on the 3rd floor. 1,5 hours presentation and a nice, extra brut Cremate d'Alsace. Afterwards, a 4-course meal that was wonderful. This room could serve 50 people. I warmly reccomend this place!

Paris in Oslo This was a very nice evening in charming location. Very French interior. The food was tasty and had good size portions. They also served gluten free bread with nice flavor! Not the usual frozen dry tasteless type served by most restaurants. The waiters were very friendly and helpful and had time to discuss the menu thus the... More

We booked a table here, which i would recommend. The restaurant is a bit small, so it can get a bit noisy as the tables are set relatively close. We had a glass of Champagne, the fish of the day and Moules Frites as well as dessert. The food was very good and the service was pretty good as well.... More

A bit noisy, but with latin atmosphere. The staff is friendly and welcoming. The menu is very French: traditional confit canard and delicous calf liver with creamy sauce. Nice trolley for cheeses and sweets. Very satisfying for those of us who like good, French cooking. And no overpriced "lutefisk" nor "pinnekjøtt" which fills up most other restaurants in Oslo in...

There is a great choice of food on the menu, something for everyone and the quality was amazing. Although we didnt have room for dessert, the dessert trolley looked amazing and i definitely... More

OK french restaurant, but not much more than the classic french cuisines. The waiters are service-minded and proud of what they do, although the food can be elevated.
