Never again. The music was noisy and too loud. The Club Sandwich was the worst we ever tasted. Judging from this meal and what we saw served at the tables around us, we wonder if this restaurant does serve a desent meal at all. The waiters were very nice and polite. Not recommended.

Cafe Christiania was a great stop for dinner. Our waitress Nathalie was very helpful with dinner recommendations and some Norwegian phrases. We had the halibut with oxtail and beef bourgingon. Both were excellent and very tasty, especially the truffle potatoes. We were completely stuffed and happy after our meals. This is definitely a restaurant to try while in Oslo.

We came to the restaurant with no expectations... My first impression was not very positive, no one were there to greet you in the entrance. We had to look for the wardrobe, which was self serviced (...) Anyways, I managed to grab hold of a young lady who showed us the way to our table. The place was half empty... More

We stopped off here for a quick drink on our way back from Aker Brygge. My wife and i would have been happy to stay for dinner but our teenagers had already got thoughts about going back to Aker Brygge, so we had one drink and left. Whilst we were there, we thoroughly enjoyed the ambience and hospitality of the... More

Perfect place for light lunch, cup of coffee or glass of wine. Also a large beer list. Central location near the Stortinget.

This is a great place on a Thursday night for a business dinner. Full enough n9t to feel empty, yet empty enough to guarantee excellent service. The food was nice - Perhaps not the best you'll ever taste, but of very reasonable quality. Service was impeccable, as was the wine. The best, however, is the art nouveau place itself. Don't...

Unfortunately the maitre'd seemed more interested in nattering to another member of staff than finding us a table... After 5 minutes of waiting to be noticed we... More
