This place is well worth a visit. The restaurant is nice and the staff are very friendly. The choice and quality of food was superb and we had a great time. We would go back if we ever go back to Oslo again.

I can recommend this restaurant to have a classic Spanish tapas. The food was good the the tapas' size big enough. The staff was nice and attentive. I was there in the afternoon before the rush, so I got a table outside as I wanted.
