Regional cuisine, cheap and large dishes, friendly staff, though the interior sort of dark and in need for refurbishment. Quite cheap if you watch every krone to spend

I stopped here with a few friends because we were walking by and hungry and my friend had a train to catch shortly. It looked like an average pub, in a convenient location. The atmosphere was very old-fashioned. The waitress was very nice and accommodating and quick. I can't give it more than 2 stars, however, because the food was... More

On our last night in Oslo, we didn't have much money left but we wanted a traditional Norweigan meal. We stumbled upon this place and although the reviews weren't great, we loved the prices. The waitress was the sweetest lady, very attentive and our food came out quickly. I had the fried chicken and the portion was HUGE for only... More

Listed on Tripadvisor as a restaurant serving Norwegian food, the Dovrestua is located at Storgata 22 on the 2nd floor near the train station and Brugata. We ordered the Wednesday night special -- Norwegian beef stew. It was more like... More

My girlfriend and I stopped here for a late dinner, and we cannot recommend this place enough. The woman working the bar was welcoming, and our pork chops were absolutely delicious. On top of the already fantastic 'local' feel of the place, there was a group of five or six older norwegian men drunkenly singing songs; the cherry on top.... More
