Smia is a hidden gem! First time for us. Great place, lovely people, fantastic athmosphere, but could have wished a somewhat more extensive menue. Decided this is our new restaurant to invite our guests!

Super nice and friendly spot in the east part of town. The courtyard for summer and warm an cozy inside for colder days.

The food is delicious, but expensive and with slow service. The acoustic environment makes the place noisy, and sometimes a normal conversation at your own table is difficult hear while talk from other table comes in loud and clear.

Had the three course dinner, it took just over 2.5 hours. Pros...Loved the cute rustic feel, and place is located across the street from beautiful park. Service was very friendly, just way too much time between courses and place wasn't very busy. Spicy Thai Mussel soup was delicious, as was accompanying deep fried soft shell crabs and chipotle mayo. Main... More

This place is really nice, it has a great atmosphere and interior, as it is both a restaurant and a gallery. The food is also really good, recommend going for the 3-,4- or 5-course of the day, always guaranteed great food. Unfortunately we had a really bad experience with the service on our last visit. We declined the wine pack,... More

Had an excellent dinner, as always at Smia. The food is good, the waiter gives good advice about wine, and the restaurant room is very nice.

The main draw of Smia is the atmosphere and historical surroundings. Outside for lunch in summer, with a view on the Vålerenga church, inside next to the fireplace in winter. Good food and good atmosphere. Good for romantic dinners.
