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.

This place looks at first sight to be a typical tourist "trap". But it isn't - most of the customers were local on the night we visited. There was a lively atmosphere in the main restaurant where we ate, and a raucous party in the rear bar area. Very good fish soup and halibut. A little expensive, but a discount... More

I've been living in Oslo for many years now and compared to other countries, Norway has a very low standard of service. None of the places are customer service minded. ...until I went to Cafe Christiania. I visited the cafe in november 2013 and was a bit disappointed by the food. The management followed up on my feedback and suggested... More

Simply delicious! Spotted this restaurant while walking around Oslo. Went for dinner as it looks so warm and inviting. The food exceeded expectations, the soups were so flavoursome and the halibut was better than any fish I've eaten at home and it was served with the softest, lightest little pillows of gnocchi. The house wine was great too. Going back... More

I've been to Oslo a few times and finally I found a nice cosy Norwegian style restaurant! It's located facing the Norwegian Parliment down town. The atmosphere is based on Norqegian culture from the early nineteen hundreds, and the decor features a large collection of Norwegian items and memorabilia. Really nice staff and room for large groups. Will go there... More
