“Great lutefisk!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2013

I don't know how the food is there normally. When I wandered in there, they were in the middle of "Lutefiskfestivalen" (lutefisk festival) - and there was only one dish to choose from. After eating lutefisk one time earlier, many years ago, I had promised myself to never eat it again. But tastes evolve, and I decided to give the dish a second chance. And I wasn't dissapointed. Altought it's never going to be one of my favorite dishes, the professional preparation and well-balanced offerings of supplementaries at Victoriahaven made it a surprisingly pleasant experience. The place was a bit cramped, but that was probably because of that festival. Overall: The kiten seems professional, and so does the service. And the price wasn't as offsetting as I had expected either - for Norwegian standards, that is...

“Cosy”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2011

The outside area is quite nice. It's next to a park, but also squeezed in between a road and the train tracks. Food is nicely presented. Thai-inspired kitchen.

I think the whole experience would have been better if we were sitting inside.
