I call this a bistro/restaurant. Went with 8 friends from the university. The waiters are friendly and skilled. Know the menu very well and suggest wines from good wine list. Tried the crayfish which was nicely cooked, juicy and tasty. I will come back.

Part of me want to keep this a secret, but I'll play nice. If you enjoy French Cuisine, friendly staff and an intimate atmosphere - this is the place. I love the food. Make sure to make a reservation. Enjoy!

Best value for money. Exquisite food with very good wine-pairing. NB! Large portions:) If you are more than two people I recommend you reserve a table a couple of weeks ahead. But if you are only two people, try to get seated in the bar.

We had the fish of the day and the entrecôte with bone marrow. Both very delicious. The service was very good and professional. The place was super busy so I recommend making a reservation

Still best French bistro in town. I just have to go here at least one day when I stay a couple of nights in Oslo. The only problem with this place is that it is too often full.

I have been to Le Benjamin several times the last year. And it's amazing to see the high level they hold every time. Both on the food and on the service.
