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. The service was good and the wait staff pleasant and spoke very good English. The restaurant looked nice inside and out. We were... More

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

I first ate here when I was in Oslo on business 6 years ago, returning for another meeting I was determined to revisit and I'm glad I did. The cafe/restaurant is situated right by the parliament so you have some lovely views if you are lucky enough to visit on a nice summer's day and can sit outside. The interior... More

Great restaurant in the centre. The owner is a great collector so you are surrounded by all sorts of quirky things e.g. mannequin heads used in hat shops, apothecary cupboards, busts and small sculptures. Excellent service and a varied menu. Locals eat here too. Expensive by UK standards but par for the course in Norway. If you have an Oslo... More

Went here for a light lunch and the food was delicious. I ordered the salmon and it was wonderful. My partner ordered the bkt and was again delighted with the food. Great place to stop by for lunch in a really handy location.

We chose to dine at this restaurant as it was recommended in our Oslo Pass booklet and was close to our hotel. We were not disappointed....food was very good with plenty of choice. Decor was quite quirky but this gave it a cosy, friendly atmosphere. Would highly recommend
