The key side road this restaurant is on is peppered with lots of restaurants and lots of outdoor eating so there is a really great atmosphere at night with people promenading and eating alfresco (at least in the summer months I gues!). The food was great with a good choice of seafood and steak amongst others - nothing out of... More

I have been to Louise for business meals many times over a period of 20 years. This time it was for an unplanned business lunch, but Louise is normally a super place for dinner. We popped in and found a nice easy menu with tempting alternatives. We ended up with a platter with cured lambs meat, chèvre cheese and plenty... More

Recommended by nearby hotel, did not measure up to the hype. Traveling through Scandinavia this was the first place where I encountered a waiter telling me twice that the "service is not included". That, after he served more expensive wine that the one I ordered (when told about it - no reaction), serving the wrong size of the soup (no... More

I visited here with my partner whilst on a weekend away in Oslo. We had a wonderful lunch at Louise and there was also a great view of the harbour.

We dined outside so we could enjoy the Oslo waterfront. Later, we went inside Louise and were blown away by room after room of amazing nautical artifacts - ceilings of booms, just incredible and beautiful. The food was delicious - we each had the creamy fish soup which is pure white, and delicious. I had an interesting and tasty salad... More

Visited this place with a friend on a Tuesday evening. We didn't have any food so I can't really comment on that. We asked the waiter for beer recommendations and were not disappointed - it was great! The prices are high, but the location is great and the service was excellent.

Stopped for a quick lunch - had a small bottle of water, glass of juice and a duck salad - GB£40 - just wasn't worth it. The view on such a sunny day was stunning, the service was efficient but not outstanding and the food was OK - just nothing much to write about.

We were in the area trying to decide which restaurant to eat for dinner and happened to see many people waiting outside of this restaurant and one of the dishes from outside table caught my eye. We decided to come back this one for dinner. We order a large fish soup to share, one shrimp with shell and one mussel.... More

The title says it all. This is a highly touristy area. The wait is long, the food is nothing to write home about.

To start, we shared a pot of mussels; they were delicious, small and tasty, done in a lovely white wine and butter broth. We then shared a large seafood platter for our main course, accompanied by a... More
