Thank you for an incredible night. Welcomed warmly and seated even though we were 30 min early. Service was on point - pacing tailored to our speed. Wine and non-alcoholic pairing with every course - no need to make drinks last through the next course...More

Excellent food and service in a place with extra plus for comfortable distance between the tables. Creative Norwegian food, not all dishes in the 10 course tasting menu was fantastic in taste (some where), but all was interesting, creative and beautiful. Wine pairing was ok,...More

We so looked forward to our dinner here but found that while the food is interesting, it wasn’t always delicious nor was the service quite what the reviewer from the New York Times experienced. When you arrive, you are encouraged to have a glass of...More

We opted for the smaller (6 course) tasting menu and the non-alcoholic drinks pairing (we're not teetotal, but not interested enough in wine to be worth paying Oslo prices for it). Hence the cost was only about half of what most of the rest of...More

We dined at Kontrast to celebrate a very special moment and had an incredible experience. We went for the "Big Kontrast" plus wine pairing. This included ten courses from pickled herring to the Jerusalem artichoke. My favorite was the Langoustine from Frøya. This was art....More

We have been to many top restaurants in several countries, rated better than Kontrast. But there is often one or more things that is not perfect when eating a full tasting menu with wine pairing. Like too much food, too much wine, too fast serving,...More

For reference, please see my review of BokBacka... Because, this is a sad reflection on that. It's expensive (yeah yeah we all know Norway is prohibitively cash flow extreme negative). But, this is ho-hum food dressed up as an experience, with a price tag to...More

The reason why I gave a rating of three stars was because it felt rather formal so it was less relaxing and fun. The food was good, but didn’t really blow my mind. Norway has really interesting restaurants so if there is only one opportunity...More
