I loved this place. It is a grand Parisian/Viennese cafe in the middle of Oslo. At first sight the menu looks a little limited and certainly pricey, but what I ordered was of superb quality. Prawns to start, the halibut to follow. Friendly staff. Grand...More

We dined on one of the nights of our three night stay in the hotel. The food and service were excellent but the cost of wine is off putting as it is across Norway.

The cafe focuses on regional specialities with fresh ingredients. They have an open faced sandwich and dessert buffet, but we chose an omelette with ham, spinach and Comte cheese. Delicious! Service was friendly but could have been a little more efficient, more I think due...More

My partner wanted to visit this restaurant, having read about it in a guidebook, so we popped in for a late lunch on a rainy day. The restaurant has the appearance of a Parisian or Viennese cafe, with photos and drawings of some of its...More

Sophisticated and relaxed atmosphere. Service was attentive and very professional. Food was beautifully cooked and presented. Great wine list. Prices in context with the quality of the restaurant and Oslo prices generally.

First time in Norway, and so only want to eat Norwegian food. The lady, receiving guests at the restaurant, recommended the Halibut plate, and I the white wine to go with it. It was very delicious. After dinner I requested a Norwegian liquor, Gammel Opland,...More

We found the restaurant has excellent service and a very tasty menu. The wines are also excellent choices, but the prices are a little high. We found the portion sizes to be very generous and the flavors were definitely gourmet.

The food here was perhaps one of the best meals we had in our 11 days in Norway. Wait staff and all servers were very professional and attentive. A little on the expensive side, but not unreasonable for the level of service and taste.

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.
