I visited the Opera House restaurant with my husband for a light lunch following a recommendation from a friend. As Brits we were keen to try out some traditional Norwegian food so we opted for the Taste of Norway light lunch which included goose and whale meat as well as gravalax and herring. The meal was very good and the... More

I liked this restaurant because we could choose Norwegian food off a menu, rather than a fixed course dinner, which was the only choice at many of the other restaurants. We sat outside and it was a beautiful evening and we could watch the sculpture in the water, the cruise boats, the kayakers and the people enjoying the beautiful Opera... More

Only wanted a light lunch so as is common in Oslo we had the Taste of Norway. Hard to judge a restaurant on this fairly standard cold selection but this one was plenty big enough and had an interesting selection of items including Whale which was nice. The staff were friendly and the coffee good. However what can be reviewed... More

This restaurant have a fantastic location, but unfortunately the kitchen is far from up to expected standard. Meny is fine, but the portions were really too small, and quite tasteless, unfortunately.

The portion sizes are a huge understatement of a normal meal. In defense the food tasted delicious and the coffee was as good as always in Oslo.

I didn't go to see any Opera as non was on during the time of my trip, however it's worth a walk over to as you can admire the beautiful building from the outside and inside. It's worth a walk to the top and you can explore the roof and get a good view of the Fjord's and the cityscape.

This a very simple restaurant, that does not match its surroundings. The food is very simple, you can find better places to use your money. I pointed out to the matradie that there was no Caesar dressing or bacon in the dish I ordered. She managed to point out one small piece of bacon, and she said "we but dressing... More

If you want a view of the harbour of Oslo in combination with good food, the restaurant is an excellent choice. You may enjoy dinner before a visit at the Opera, or you may have a cup of coffee outside. The place can be crowded, and I recommend booking a table for dinner.

Me and my friends climbed to the roof of the Opera house and it was so worth it. One side you get spectacular views of the river and mountains, the other, beautiful views of the city. Afterwards we sat inside for a hot drink. I must say, for a central attraction the drink prices were very reasonable. The inside of... More

We go to the opera and ballet as often as we can afford. We take the bus, and we always have a glass of Champagne before seeing an opera or a ballet performance. You shaold do that as well!
