“Expensive no service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Don't bother... Expensive... Little choice... Have to collect own meal from counter... Have a picnic instead... Norway must improve service and quality of food if they are to charge these prices.

“Always the same?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

We went to Egon's to celebrate the Norwegian Constitution Day (May 17th). I know the menu is the same in all Egon's restaurant throughout Norway, but somehow I was hoping for something different and special on a celebration day like this.

Food was okay (but I guess our baked potato was finished before we ordered it, everything went too quick this time) as always. But this is no restaurant for surprises.

Nevertheless, for the right moment Egon's is a nice big restaurant where you can enjoy a good time with family and friends.

“Decent - for Norway”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013 via mobile

Nice cosy atmosphere, food is standard but you can't go wrong, it's more of a pub than a restaurant as you have to go up to the bar to order.

“Great atmosphere!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013 via mobile

Although there were not so many options, try the pizza buffet!
Really a good choice!
The decoration of the restaurant also is part of such atmosphere!

“Good concept and food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

This restaurant is a part of the restaurant chain Egon in Norway. They use a concept where you get the menu and order yourself at the bar. The food is then served at your table.

The menu has a great variety, and if you don't like surprises, You always know that Egon uses the same menu everywhere.

The service at this restaurant was great, food came quickly. Everything tasted deliciously.
