My wife and I stayed at this hotel for a three day visit to Oslo. We visited several top recommended restaurants. We thought this place was better than all those recommendations. Service was outstanding ( Anna Tove). Food was first rate.

Lovely restaurant situated in the middle of the city. The whole restaurant oozes a feeling of old fashioned relaxed efficiency and class. Had lunch (shrimp salad) here and it was absolutely delicious. Service was very friendly and very efficient. Surroundings were delightful.

We had an omelette with comte and spinach, which was quite all right, freshly made and tasty, but a little dull. The service was very good. There aren't many other places in Oslo matching this restaurant when it comes to interior and atmosphere. Look for...More

The food, three course meny of the day plus wine menu, was mediocre and we had to request the wine before we finished the courses. Lack of attention or interest from the staff did not help. The starter was ok, but the main course, cod,...More

Lively and unique... Theatercafeen is part of Norwegian cultural history and an absolute must for every visitor to Oslo. We have been one of the city's most popular places to eat and meet for more than 100 years. You will feel at home in our buzzing atmosphere. This is a relaxed place, equally appropriate for drinking a glass of wine or for dining. Our bar counter provides a pleasant option if you are on your own. Inside the restaurant you can see a unique collection of portrait paintings, all portraying people who are, or have been, regular guests at Theatercafeen. Our chambre séparée or private room seats up to 36 people and is a perfect venue for smaller events. Reservations recommended.
