we were walking around the wharf area looking for a restaurant and wanted to sit outside. This was a very nice place and had a menu which featured reindeer and moose. We enjoyed the food and the location of the restaurant.

Four friends had booked a table in advance at Rorbua. The place is located at the very popular Aker Brygge (harbour). However, this restaurant is a bit from the sea front and limited tables outside. Food inside is very good, ordered a warm sea food...More
