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,

We visited this restaurant many times. The meat was of a great quality (9 out of 10 times). The atmosphear was nice, welcoming, the meny was simple, and you do not wait long time to get food. The staff is very nice, friendly and care about guests.

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.

I was eager to try out Trancher, a steakhouse that has only one item on the menu: Filet mignon, slow-cooked, with an a la carte selection of sauces and sides. I'd read raving reviews and disappointed reviews. My meal was great as far as the sauces and sides were concerned: really nice (and crisp), thin green beans wonions, and potatoes... More

If you love entrecôte's do not miss this restaurant. The side dishes and source can be improved but still hold a high level and again the meat are superb.

Been here before some years back. Went here on a friday evening. Book a table in advance. I've read the reviews saying that the meat is not that good so I was a bit nervous. But this evening they got it all right. Really great meat and the extras is just perfect. Great and fast service. Def a place to... More

very small and cramped place. We were pushed next to the entrance next to this huge curtain. This was meant to be the best steak in Oslo. It was boring and tasteless. It was just average. Go to Le Benjamin or another similar place. You'll get more for your money and better food. The service was good though.

Delicious prime rib! I can't wait until my next business trip to Oslo, because I will be coming back here for sure! This is probably the best meat I had in Scandinavia. The service is exquisite. Worth a visit.

Trancher is a cozy place in a vibrant neighborhood in Oslo. Good and friendly service in english also. Trancher serves dry-aged grilled ribeye. The rare steak lacks the caramellization that you usually have in a grilled ribeye, because it is probably grilled as a big piece of meat and then cut to steaks. So this is a bit different kind...
