Our party of 12 went to Akershus Royal Banquet Hall for lunch, during a rainstorm on a hot September afternoon. From the door, the experience was really good. The pictures with Belle were not rushed and you get three poses, with 5 copies of each pose, and they hand them to you at the table. The princesses spend lots of... More

We went for breakfast. Next time I'll schedule it before the park opens. The food was good, the Princesses lovely and the princess parade was sweet. Dress up your little ones for this as the will have a ball!

It was ok. They bring plated food to your table so you don't get to pick. I didn't think it was anything to rave about. My daughter loved getting her picture taken with Belle (came with meal) before we went in.

I know what you're thinking. Norwegian food? How good is that? Even with the princesses, are we going to have to eat again later? Well, the answer is: No. You won't. Because you will be stuffed from the fabulous food. The cold buffet is great. Lots of fish, cold cuts, cheeses, salads, etc. Then, you get to order an entree... More

Being called mame and sir can make you seems so old now adays... But being called Princess and Prince brings on an entire new feeling , no matter how young or old you are ! Upon entering the royal dining hall, you are greeted with a royal announcement of your last name showing everyone of your arrival . First princess... More

This place was underwhelming with it's food, service and the princesses time for interaction. We thought this would be something special but the service was just average. The food was mediocre and the princesses seemed to be rushed. We won't go back here.

The food here is awesome (of you like it, of course). Do your self a favor and skip the picture with the princess - long lines are a burden. Service here is a completely different chapter. Waiters are not nice and almost rude. We have asked to move from the table we were assigned to in the first place and... More

This was our birthday treat for our 7 year old daughter who was turning 8. She loved having the princesses come to our table but we noticed that they didn't really engage with her, but did spend a lot of time at other tables around us. The boy found it amusing but at 11.5 years, did not want to get... More

Our family really enjoys eating here. I like how it has both family style and buffet. The dessert is great to. My family likes this way better then the princess castle. We also feel that the food is way better. Different experience all around.

Had lunch here with my family this week, my daughter is nearly 4 and loved meeting the princesses but really that was the only good part. The surroundings are a little tired, we felt rushed and it is nowhere near as atmospheric as the castle in MK. The meal is the same price as CRT but the food was partly... More
