Staff = 5 stars. They are just lovely and brilliant. Setting = 5 stars. Very nice. Food = 2 stars! I ordered the £45 steak - they specialise and ONLY serve steak.

Maybe the shortest menu I have ever seen is a great concept. However, being Norway, consistent quality meat can be hard to find. Even for professionals.

I really don't know why this place continue to get good reviews. Maybe it is because we Norwegians are brought up on low quality meat and this place deliver a bit better that 'Terrible', or because I have been very unfortunate when visiting.

The experience was superb all around! The atmosphere combined with the excellent food (the really know what are doing) made this a truly delightful visit. Not to mention the excellent service wich was always present, but never intrusive. Our waitress was very attentive and professional, and we never had to ask for anything,

My experience here was amazing. Best prepared and cooked steak in town! Great variety of side dishes (ordered individually) and you choose your entrecote prepared however you like it. Great for birthdays, celebrations, dates, business, or simply because you deserve it.

The place is cozy, nice and with good food. We visited this restaurant several times and all the time, went home happy and satisfied. The service was good, and food served with good deserts. Do not forget the creme brulee.
