I was there with a friend for the brunch and we ordered the finger food. they were basically small sandwiches that we could have done, without any exceptional chef skills (bread, lettuce, maionese, ham and cheese...) nothing that deserves extra credit. I must say that due the prices, I was expecting something more...

I loved dining here. The place is airy and decorated in a very funky way. Seafood was delicious. We had the fish soups, halibut appetizer and red wine. Service was Gracious and friendly.

The place has a good variety of foods from international cuisine. All the foods that our group had were very tasty. I hade the orange risotto and it was excellent! Nice ambience, delicious food, amd incredible collection of 1920s-1960s kitchen gadgets and all.

Dad and I stopped here for dinner - mainly because it looked so interesting - nothing like most cookie-cutter restaurants. We shared the scallop appetizer, which was presented well and tasted pretty good. I had the stuffed pork. It was alright, nothing to try again. Dad had fish that was prepared very nicely. With our typical American stomach clock, we... More

We had an absolutely superb meal at Cafe Christiana and, contrary to some of the other reviewers, had very good service. We had Sole Meunière, which was perfectly prepared and garnished with plentiful fresh herbs. It was almost like having a small herb salad! We also had dessert (which we never do), and it was excellent. We would definitely make... More

This lovely vintage establishment which offers great discounts with an Oslo card provided good food and an interesting period decor but our dinner was spoiled because of service issues. One of our diners forgot to mention that she was alergic to onions and while onions weren't listed as part of the sauce when it arrived she asked about it. It... More

This restaurant is really easy to find, with 20% off food with the Oslo Pass, and is well worth a visit. Both of our meals were delicious, as was the almond cake dessert. It had a really interesting decor (check out the shoemaker's workshop near the toilets!) The service was a bit slow at times but this didn't detract from... More

We should have guessed why there weren't as many people eating here as there were at the restaurant next door which had been our first choice but because it was full we stumbled across the Cafe Christiania.

We ate here partially because with an Oslo pass you get 20% off but also because it had a really nice menu, and it didn't disappoint. The food was lovely and brilliant prices by Oslo standards - my boyfriend paid under 200kr for the biggest bowl of mussels I've ever seen and I had the duck which was also lovely.... More
