Description: Don't just go out for dinner - go up! On the 34th floor of the Oslo Plaza Hotel, a dizzy 107 metres over the ground, you can choose from both lunch and evening menus and sample fancy cocktails at the bar, whilst mesmerised by the bird's eye view of Oslo. 34 has an impressive choice of menus: an oyster menu, lobster menu and menus based on seasonal ingredients comprising 3, 5 or 7 courses. There is even a 4-course vegetarian menu. This is a restaurant with a difference; the perfect spot for a meal with business colleagues or your loved one. There could be no better start or end to a great night out (or up) in town.

“Great view, but horrible selection/service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2014

Tonight we wanted to show some of our international friends the view of Oslo, while enjoying something to drink, we thought Bar 34 would be the the perfect location to go to because of its location and view.
Having worked several years within the same industry I know what I can expect and I am willing to cut people some slack if it is flat out busy in the bar, but if you got only ten guests and 3 staff members at work, I expect more than what was provided tonight.

Here are some friendly tips.

1. Have more than one menu in your Bar - No need to explain why
2. Having only Ringes, Carlsberg, Corona some kind of dark beer ?? is not a good enough selection or description in any Hotel bar, even if this is a cocktail bar. - ps. 80% of your guest where drinking beer.
3. I am not expecting an amazing selection of tea & coffee, how ever call me crazy but having something similar to Green tea, Peppermint, hot chocolate/mocca, really basic items (which you do have in your hotel) is not too much to ask for in a hotel bar anywhere in the world, just get your lazy staff to restock the bar.

“Hopeless”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2014

No much good food with very limited options. The menu really needs some addition of more items. Only view is good from top.

“Great view”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

The bar has a great view of Oslo and up to the hills around the city. Nice cocktails and good place to have a quick drink. Atmosphere is very stiff and boring so a quick drink for the view is worth it but you won’t want to stay for a second.
