Description: Klosteret is situated in central Oslo - Hammersborg, beside the Deichmanske Main Library. The menu has a wonderful combination of continental and French dishes and the wine list is impressively diverse. The name Klosteret translates as The Monastery and there is a touch of the divine in the old brick arches lit by hundreds of candles and wonderfully calm atmosphere. A unique setting for a meal with colleagues, a romantic evening out or for guests from abroad - an unforgettable experience. The restaurant also has a Chambre Separée for private parties.

“Average food and raw service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

The ambiance is quite nice. But the food is only very average, not far away from the one some make at home. It's not bad, but that's just not worth the price at all. The waiters and waitresses are nice except one, the Asian lady is too directive and should attend the training "how should I behave towards other waiters in front of the guests". The 1st bottle of wine, that I picked myseld was ok. The second, which was recommended by the Asian lady was not.

“Excellent food and wine pairing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

They really know how to pair food and wine. This romantic cellar with candles and Gregorian music was the perfect place to celebrate my birthday. The restaurant is great both for pleasure and business.

“Great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

This restaurant has really food and the chocolate desserts are really something. It is situated down in a basement and you are surrounded by candles and brick walls. Very romantic, but noisy at Christmas season.

“the perfect date place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

If you like lots and lots of candles, an intimiate atmosphere, really good service and fantastic food, this is the place to take someone you want to make an impression on and look them deep into their eyes. When we ordered champagne it turned out that even the waiter was from the area of Champagne and gave us expert advise on what to order. An extra treat. Good 3, 5 and 7 course menus at ok prices for Oslo.
