Description: Nice neighbourhood restaurant and pub in Oslo's main shopping street, Bogstadsveien. A wellknown meeting spot with soul and atmosphere, and a history dating back to 1885. Since then, the premises have been housing both a pharmacy and a bakery. As a restaurant, The Broker has been an informal and popular hang out place with many musicians and artists among its regular guests. The newer Broker retains a classic, brown interior, decorated ceilings and large chandeliers. The Broker has a good selection of beer, wine and liquor, preferably from smaller Norwegian producers. It has of course a great selection of tasty dishes on the menu as well. Everything is made from scratch and based on seasonal ingredients. Atmosphere and friendliness is Brokers trademark. The Broker has the ability to make you feel relaxed and welcome - and once you have been there, chances are you'll repeat the visit.

“Old, rustic restaurant with okay food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2011

Old restaurant at Majorstua in Oslo. Okay food with disinterested service staff. Okay place for business lunches and afternoon burgers - but otherwise stay clear. There are better places in the immediate proximity, like Bolivar's just down the street.
