Cosy place with tradition. Great atmosphere, nice food. They served a Norwegian Indian Pale Ale and fish. What more could a man wish? Crème Brulee? Also available. Lovely interior. I will definitely return

Great ambience. Beautiful building. Really great in summertime where you can enjoy lunch outside or on the terasse. This is my favoite restaurant in Oslo. Where the food is excellent quality and great wine selection. Good service (hard to come by in Oslo). Especially the original decore I like and high ceilings. Absolutely a pleasure. Recommend this for business or... More

The Restaurant is Situated close to Hotels and serves tasteful food in a different setting than usual restaurants. I would not add a negative review, I must warn guests that you must be prepared for a long stay at this Restaurant, food is prepared from fresh and therefore you will need to be prepared to wait a while. The restaurant... More

The place has modern comfort and warmth mixed with a more traditional elegant decor and overall style. It manages to do something very difficult which is to be clearly upmarket but still welcoming. The food was wonderful I would go back to Oslo just to eat there again! It is beautifully presented and is quietly served by friendly efficient and... More

The place has an interesting decor and is full of history. The food is pretty good and have a fairly good selection, albeit not a lot. Waitress is friendly and will recommend if asked. Go on a Friday or Saturday to try their mix of beer. Don't forget to use Oslo Pass for the discount (which we unfortunately did!)

Love the atmosphere. The restaurant has an old world charm, good food and good service. The Rosefish and fish soup were very good. We just don't understand why this restaurant is not recommended by the hotels more often, especially since it has such a great location.

Good food, service and ambience. We passed this restaurant many times and loved the character of the building but because no one ever recommended it, it took us several days before we tried it on our own. Thank goodness we followed our instincts because it is our favorite in Oslo.

Great location, right opposite the Norwegian parliament. The moment we went in, we could see that it was well decorated with country items which gave this place a nice charm. Here are several sections - coffee shop, fine dining (in a private room), bar, and nightclub. Lots of great wine. Don’t expect the best service through as they are quite... More

Stopped here for an early dinner, about 6:30. Had no trouble getting a table. The fish and shellfish soup was delicious. My husband had the entrecote (beef) for dinner and gave me a bite. I thought it was tough, but he liked it and said it had a good flavor. My moules were very good, but I thought the frites... More
