We went for the 10 course + wine. The 3 first fish-based meals were genuinely fabulous. Then the others were only very good. The wine was good without being fantastic. In contradiction with what what said in other critics, it is definitely possible to book - I made my reservation 1 month in advance - which is, to be honest,... More

I've had the 10 course menu twice. They are two of the most amazing meals I have ever had. Palace Grill is at least as good as the Michelin starred restaurants in Oslo, though less formal and probably a bit more obscure. Expensive, but worth the cost.

This place has great food, Michelin quality, and great wine selection. You can not book a table so show up before opening and have a beer in the bar.

Fantastic food in a small restaurant, cramped for space, but great atmosphere. Excellent service, great wines and very tasty food. One of the best restaurants ever (and I have been at many!). Not to experimental. TRY IT!

So after eating on Alex tuesday, Fauna wednsday, I was recommended Palace. it seems that within a radius of 45 meters you will find the best places to eat in Oslo. At palace you can not reserve a table, but when you finally get one it is absolute a ride. The chef comes out and looks at you, then decides... More

Palace Grill used to be the best.... But now....? Palace Grill has always delivered extremely well tasting food! Happy and attentive service at its best! Like artists, the two "originally" waiters have always given us a fantastic evening! The atmosphere in the restaurant with it's 24 seats has been terrific for years. After 15 years with 2-3 memorable visits every... More

Palace Grill used to be the best. After 6 years I looked forward to visit this iconic restaurant again. Last time Palace Grill gave us the time of our lives. Extremely good, happy and attentive service together with great atmosphere, top food and presentations were some of the memories back then. Unfortunately Palace Grill did not deliver at all this...

What more is there to say about Palace Grill? It has always been my favorite place to celebrate with friends or have a romantic dinner with a loved one. The food is always top notch and I have always received friendly and helpful service from the staff. If you like your waiter to bee stiff and formal, do not go... More

This is one of the most iconic restaurants in Norway. With only about 10 tables and an enormous focus on food quality this place is probably in the top 5 places to dine in Norway. However be ware that the menu is very honest and to some degree to "raw" in its flavors and ingredients . If you don´t enjoy... More
