Description: Modern bar and brasserie with an international, relaxed atmosphere. The building was originally an eletrical transformer station, and the 12-metre ceiling gives a unique atmosphere to the room. Bolgen & Moi's brasserie offers innovative food and will recommend wines from the extensive wine list. The restaurant serves everything from oven-baked pizza to 5-course menus, and a popular breakfast buffet is available Thursday-Saturday. The large bar serves a great selection of cocktails, snacks and treats from a wood-burning stove, and in summer you can enjoy your meal on the large outdoor terrace.

“Wilted & dull salad, but at least it was overpriced”
Reviewed June 20, 2012

Bølgen & Moi Briskeby has a great location, quietly situated close to the Frognerpark. The building is a former fire station and hence has a high ceiling and is pretty grand. They also have a good terrace, especially when the sun is shining.

I had a Ceasar's salad for 169,- Norwegian kroners (ca. 28 USD), which as such is overpriced, but considering the sun and my hunger I accepted it. Unfortunately the salad was wilted. When mentioning this to the waiter she replied: "Oh! I know who cut it. He has only worked here for two days.". She laughed and then left the table.

Beer is not served in 0,5 l glasses, but in 0,3 l in glasses that look far bigger than its content. These are also VERY overpriced. The burger my friend had was overcooked, and the bacon way passed "well done". Sorry, but this is far from well done by Bølgen & Moi.

“Nonchalant :(”
Reviewed June 4, 2012

Cool restaurant, poor service, good food but Ceasar dressing was all over the sides of the plate. Not only mine but all of us having the salad had the same problem. A good kitchen never sends food out without cleaning the plates first. Waiter was not keen in serving drinks, he forgot to ask half of the group and was grumpy in general.
This could have been a nice lunch.

“Over priced”
Reviewed March 15, 2012

Well, it is one of those semi-celebrity and stock-boys places. You need to pay the "white in your eye" for everything and it is frankly not that great.

“over priced”
Reviewed March 15, 2012

I was there a lot for lunches when i worked in advertising. The company always took the bill. They brag about some horrible juice in a wine bottle, and the bacon was always dry and over done.

This is the place to impress people you can handle large bills without puling your credit card, not the place to impress people with your excellent choice of restaurants.

Reviewed February 7, 2012

Average food served in an unenthusiastic way. You're just another guest..... Good wine list though.....
