First visit. Celebrated my daughter and sons birthdays. Had the daily three course dinner with a wine package. Really good food and nice wine. Excellent service all the way. The only negative thing was the noice level, but maybe not so strange as the restaurant...More

We had an excellent meal here while in Oslo. I love French Onion soup and this place had the best I’ve ever tried. The steak was perfect too. Service was top notch and the place is really cute. Would come here again!

We had a team dinner with champagne and the 3-5 course meal. The team loved the mussels, the skate with lemon cream potatoes was delicious as was the duck confit. The cheese dessert was the perfect ending.

This tourist felt completely at home at this charming, local restaurant with great service and wonderful food. I recommend it for travelers who'd like a respite from traditional Norwegian cuisine. The interior is low-key and the menu assessable with numerous fish options (it is still...More

Lovely meal with fois gra, morels, and a ribeye (medium which it was), 2 excellent fish mains - we tried the sole and turbot. Both extremely generous portion sizes. Save space for the dessert! We tried the lemon meringue tart and chocolate slice with cherry...More

The restaurant is located in an old building in the center of Oslo, which creates a cozy atmosphere. It’s a popular place and therefore table reservations are recommended. The food was excellent but there was little space for variation (extra veggies was no option when...More

A limited (but we love limited when it focuses on those truly best market picks) excellent menu, a cozy, sophisticated atmosphere, and excellent service. This is a restaurant I've been searching for in Oslo for a long time. Not pretentious, just very good, authentic (French)...More
