I'm sure this is a fantastic restaurant... But not if you want to eat... My partner and I tried to go for a meal - we went in and loads of free tables.. 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

We wanted a nice pre Christmas dinner, but was hugely disappointed. Food was ok, venue was fun, but the service.. OMG, even for Oslo it was shocking. Pouty and unmotivated waitresses, not only one, but all three who was at our table. No greetings, no question on if we wanted to order, no follow up on the quality, no refilling... More

We went here fore a business lunsj. Some of the food was good, but some was not that good. The Christmas platter was quite average, and almost impossible to share. We got a platter to share fore three people, but it was only two of some of the dishes. Order a dish pr person is my recommendation. The service was... More

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.
