Just off the main thoroughfare in town, Karl Johans Gate, and nearby Parliament building is where you'll find Café Christiania. It's also short walking distance to Oslo's uber-trendy waterfront, Aker Brygee. The atmosphere is very warm and inviting with a touch of old world charm. As we entered the restaurant, my companion and I was greeted cordially and shown to... More

Good ambience and service but busy. We got a discount with our Oslo Pass. The food was good but expensive: if in Oslo again we'd go to the Grand Café.

Very nice service. Delicious food. Not too much choice. As you would expect from such a classy, traditional place, next to the parliament.

We have been at Cafe Christiana at National Day and it was really crowded. Beside all the crowd the staff was very polite and helpful. We had asparagus for starter and fish as main dish. Fish was very good however asparagus was amazing. It was one of the most delicious asparagus I have ever had. Prices was a bit high... More

I was taken here by a local friend. Truly a place of choice in Oslo. I had the duck and paired it with a nice Italian Barbera which we shared at the table. The duck was well prepared, tender and really tasty. I like the atmosphere. It was warm and spacious. This place lends itself to those special occasions when... More

We like Cafe Christiania very much and go there often (once a month). Service is very good, and same goes with the food. It is also very well priced, especially considering that you are in the heart of Oslo. One thing though: it is surprising that you describe the type of cuisine as Norwegian, when this is a Bistro, and... More

We decided to stop by this restaurant and have lunch as it looked pretty good from the outside. Coming in, we weren't disappointed as the decor was very quaint, with lots of vintage knick-knacks adorning the walls. We ordered a beef steak with fries and a seafood soup respectively. The seafood soup had cod in it and a rather interesting... More

I highly recommend this restaurant. The setting is beautiful the food was tasty and the service was friendly. They had a nice children's menu but the overall feeling was charming, warm and nice. The prices, by Norwegian standards, were not too high. Our family was treated to lovely warm service and the food was really very good. Overall I think... More

The owner is a collector of old handicrafts/skills. Good food. Food and drinks are not cheap (but where do you get that in Oslo?) Just across the streets of the Parliament

The location is very central, interiors are nice and the staff are very friendly and fun. We were a large group, and had entecotes with pommel frites - so super basic, but very good.
