Visited with friends, a party of 6 and was not disappointed. All steaks came in quick time all cooked as requested and tasty steaks and vegetables.
The staff were very pleasant and courteous and nothing was too much trouble.
I have visited many restaurants in city centres, by tourist attractions and by harbours that have not lived up to expectations and cost a fortune, a real rip off, this IS NOT one of those and I highly recommend this if you like tasty good steaks with great service.

It is clear that you cannot judge the restaurant by one meal, but my experience was really disappointing.
After quite long stay in Oslo I was really glad to find a steakhose! I have ordered 400g rib eye steak. It was correctly medium done but dry and by the taste far not comparable with my expectation. The other 200g tenderloin was overdone and hard. That could be already expected by the cook, because the steak was far too thin. The sauces were good and side dishes too. The choosed baked potato was another disappointment. It had water taste and was suprisingly melted inside and not firm as it should be. I had an impresion that it was forced to grow within a week.
Anyway steaks are not to be compared with Curasco, Asado or any other steakhouse in the continental Europe.
The service was horrible with no life in the stuff despite very few guests sitting there.
About price we do not need to discuss a lot because the price level in Oslo is already higher as anywhere else and steak costs almost double the German price.
Location is very good with a nice wiew and even in case of bad weather there is a nice glass house.

This place is for sure one of our favourites in Oslo. There are different cuts of meat and different weights. Your stake comes with your own choice of potatoes, sauces and butter (all included in the price) and there are plenty of side dishes to chose from. But most importantly the meat is cooked to perfection and seasoned beautifully. Starters, deserts and drinks are also pleasant.
Price wise, well it is Oslo and nothing is cheap but it is not over priced either. Reasonable prices for good food on a great location.
Very good experience overall for stake lovers.
