Small - yet pleasant and charmy place. Entrecote in various sizes is what you get - of course with a variety of side-dishes. Affordable prices and friendly staff.

We went to Trancher an evening of August finding a very typical Norwegian restaurant in the lovely district of Gunerlokka. We tasted two fantastic and high quality Entrecote of different weight, one of 400 and one of 200 gr served with a wide selection of sauces and fries. The steaks have been cooked in a traditional Scandinavian way, at low... More

There is possibility for out door eating. Hamburgers are rather tastety. Sallads are not really good. You can find much better places and price worthy further north of the same street.

The food was very good indedd, so was the wine. The bes of all was the street scene in a vibrant and... More

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. I had the Entrecote and a £12 glass of red (actually I pushed the boat out and had 2 glasses). They don't ask how you like your steak... More

You get what it says, but the execution of both the meat and most of the sides could be so much better. Very nice service. Good size.

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 have been eating three times at Trancher and on this last visit the meat was not better than ok. My kid complained that his dad cooks better beef. Too bad as I think... More

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. I have eaten in this place 2 times the past year, and both times the meat has... More
