Me and my partner fancied Italian but didn't want to go further than the area of Karl Johan's Gate and so chose to eat at Mona Lisa. It was a late Sunday night so the restaurant wasn't very busy at all, something that usually would...More

I was together with my gf for a dinner. The waiter was very affective and fast, understandable since we were the only table in the restaurant that time. I ordered the italian style burger, was ok, way too dry. She ate the risotto with shrimps...More

This place offered a wonderful and tasty brunch. I had a salmon sandwich which was so fresh and crunchy, my husband had eggs and bacon which also tasted wonderful. The service is very good, our waitress was so friendly and had a beautiful smile :)

Having just arrived in Oslo and wanting to taste some authentic Norwegian food we chose this place for the prominent Norwegian menu displayed out front. It appeared more elegant than we were looking for but we were comfortable with a table on the balcony overlooking...More

Very personalized service by the excellent chef, Jamal. Menu has varied choices from reasonable to upper range. They offer a gourmet lunch from 1100 to late afternoon which is super reasonable. If you do not want to break your wallet and yet experience gourmet dining...More

The food and service are good. I went twice within a 10 day period as their fish soup is the best I had after travelling around several restaurants. The prices are relatively high for a mid range restaurant even for Oslo. Expect around 400 NOK...More
