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

We had been eating here for several years, and it's time to write about this place. A very reasonable priced place with good tasty food. They have never dispointed us all these years we have been visiting them. The service is excellent and the restaurant itself is very pleasant place to be. Just take the bus 37 from the center...

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.

Smia Galleri is slightly outside the city centre (about 15-20 minutes by foot from the central), and is situated nicely at the foot of Vålerenga kirke, which has a great view of Oslo. It has a great atmosphere and ambiance with a slightly quirky feel. The food was great and so were the drinks. It's laid-back and a great place... More

Very quaint restaurant just out of town but a 10 min walk from where we were staying. We had a la carte (mussel soup to start and the deer and fish for mains) the food was incredible- big portions and very tasty. Lovely atmosphere and friendly staff. Expensive, but for a one off or for a special evening would definitely... More

First visit to Oslo and found this great little place to eat on here actually... The restaurant lives up to the reviews and the food is cracking. Our waiter did a great job of translating the menu into English for us and the service was excellent. Only negative I would say is that value wise, comparatively to a lot of... More
