“Good price, tasty food, friendly caring staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2013

Had the reindeer stew, beer on draught, and Akevitt. All were very good, though not excellent. But value for money, quite good for Oslo and a nice atmosphere (not terribly modern, small and nice wooden decor). Nice location a couple streets away from the tourist path, as well. Showed up a little before 10 pm and staff indicated we'd have to order quick but wasn't a problem ordering. Sauce on the reindeer stew was notable - some sort of fruity mushroom concoction.

“Good atmosphere, excellent food, reasonable prices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

It doesn't look fantastic from the outside, but once you're in it feels great!
Nice atmosphere with old norvegian guys having quite a good time. The food was delicious; i had the whale steak... something to be tried! And the guy working there was very friendly and carying.
I definitely recommand you come here, for a good time and to avoid the general rip-off that you'll get anywhere else in Oslo!

“Poor experience”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013 via mobile

Food wasn't good at all, ambience is lame, service was at least friendly. Wouldn't come back even if starving and tired.

“Good Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2013

I stayed at Comfort HOtel Boersparken July this year. This restaurant was 5 mins walk from my hotel. Small and cozy. The boss or waiter was very helpful and attentive. NIce food. Fresh ingredients. I enjoyed the baked salmon very much. it was 159 NOK. It came with meshed potato and vegetables. The fish soup (120 NOK) was also very yummy. Good value for money.

“Best cafe in the Oslo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2013

If you came in the Norway and start your trip from Oslo so you need visit Nilsen Spiseri! For this have you three causes: 1) Oslo is very expensive city and food cost expensive too... Here you you find cheap breakfast, lunch and dinner in the big plate! 2) there are many cafe in Oslo with Asian, Arabic and Italian foods, there are many fast food restaurants, but you are in Norway and wanted traditional meals! Here you find it! 3) central destination, friendly staff and comfortable atmosphere!
