(Sorry , I don't remember the name. But all of them was great) The Food. It was most amazing experience. 4 course dinner... More

Had the great delight of having a meal in Hos Thea.

Believe the hype! This truly is fine dining but what makes it so special is the exceptional service. My pregnant fiancé was offered fruit juice on the house, we were both offered extra starter dishes and even bonus desert. We ended up having a five course meal each in the end and the price was totally reasonable! The wines were... More

Lovely place, great food, the owner was a delight. My partner and I had lamb shank which was perfectly falling off the bone. We had a bottle of white wine but the owner insisted we had a glass of red with it which was lovely of him. Very cosy, tables quite close together but it doesn't matter, the place is... More

My husband and I were both foodies and we were delighted to have found Hos Thea. We had an amazing experience from the food prepared with precision and love, intimate setting, impeccable service, and the most friendly chef who came out to greet us and had a small chat. We've chosen the tasting menu and were pleasantly surprised by every... More

From the moment you walk into this place you are welcomed by great staff and a beautiful ambience. We ordered the 4 selections on the Chefs Menu, all the food was amazing and I can see why it is the number 1 restaurant in Oslo. The head chef Sergio was out helping to serve tables and take the time to... More

The food was fantastic, but the service made the whole experience absolutely perfect. If you're going to Oslo you must make the short walk out to this restaurant. Everyone was so attentive and friendly.
