We were a party of four who ordered a three course menu from their a-la-carte menu. The waitress was very pleasant and had very good knowledge about both the menu and wine/ beer recommendations. We had an amazing dinner at this very charming restaurant, surrounded by a historic atmosphere.

We had a (delicious) monkfish - we ordered the last piece at 6pm, so you probably can be upset with not being able to eat what you like - and (an ok) whale stake. Not really a superb restaurant and a bit overpriced: you probably do not expect to have the same side dish for both main courses... Limited wine... More

Associated with fish, but out of the seasonal 'Skrei-mølje' (fresh cod). So we ended up with duck, fairly unsexy, but ok. Old and a bit worn down interior, but spacious between tables and no intrusive music, so a good place for conversations ok service, a bit pushy on the drinks

The person who served us was one of the most unfriendliest and unprofessional persons I met in my life. He needs better training as he harms the owner of this restaurant. Every single place in Oslo provides WiFI password to their customers. This fellow said he cannot provide us the WiFi password of the restaurant. He gave us some nonsense... More

This is a quiet, cozy place with very good food and service on the top of the scale. It is in an old building and the atmosphere is dignified. Excellent presentations of the dishes

With an hour to kill I ate lunch here a bit after mid day. A great shrimp sandwitch and dessert. Maybe the best shrimp sandwitch I've had. The staff was very friendly and service minded, and helped me with some messages, since my phone had been crushed by the sidewalk and was being repaired. Highly recommended!

The first impression was that the restaurant was a little bit run down (old carpet). Second impression was very negative: when we arrived, the manager (we assumed it was the manager), just pointed to table saying: 'that's your table'. After that we saw him goig around all tables, having a chat with the guests. He did not come to our... More

Except from the serviceminded and sweet bartender the bar itself was quite ordinary, to put it politely. The restaurant on the other hand was tasty, cosy and kept in an old (Victorian style?)! The food was exquisite though not abundant. The staff was invisibly present, the service was impeccable. Kristin&Hakon, Norway
