“Surprisingly good!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

I met my son in Oslo - he was here from Houston on business, so it was nice to get together for a good meal. It turned out to be very good! We had reindeer and the waitress (from Sweden) was selecting an excellent wine to go with it. The meat was prepared to perfection. Water and 3 different kind of bread to choose from - and everything came with no delays. I was surprised because Norwegian restaurants are not famous for bringing these kind of "extras", that I from my years in USA took for granted. I will definitely visit Louise again.

“One of the best restaurant experiences during our cruise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

This restaurant is located among many other restaurants by the seafront, not far from where our cruise ship was berthed, so that we actually could see it from out table. We did not expect to find such a good restaurant in what seemed to be a typical tourist area, where so-called 'tourist traps' are most common. We were looking for something to snack on, preferably of the local Norwegian cuisine, before boarding back on our ship. So were were very glad that we found that place. Like many other neighboring restaurants it has a nice terrace to sit in a good day.

What most impressed us there is their Norway Lobster Soup. It looked like a cup of coffee, but it was in fact a cup of a very delicious soup (I enclose a picture of it). I'll be honest if I say that we never had something like that before. We also ordered two mugs of a wonderful local beer and two dishes of Smoked Salomon from Leroy. Everything was very fresh and tasted good, but the soup was particularly outstanding. The place is not cheap - we paid about $127 in the local currency for this experience, but it was worth it. It's been more than a month since we visited that place, but we still often remember it.

“Great shrimp sandwich”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Stopped here for lunch on a cold rainy day, but still ate outside. They had furs on the chairs and wraps if you wanted or needed them as well as heat lamps under the awning. The service was great as was the sandwich and beer that the waitress recommended for us. Great stop and view even through the rain!

“Decent meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

Ate here on a business trip with 5 colleagues. Very attentive service and waiter spoke excellent English. Good selection of food which was well cooked and very tasty. Desserts were particularly delicious, but disappointingly small. We sat outside and had a great view of the harbour.

Prices seemed reasonable by Norway standards, but expensive when compared to UK restaurants.

“Magnific mussels”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

This restaurant serves excellent mussels - the best we ever had ! This preparation was a whole discovery. Also the Fish dish had a lot of flavor ! We would certainly return at our next visit. We also recommend the Macon wine. The cheapest on the list, but very tasty. The service was great.
