Description: In 1998 Pascal became the Royal Palace's neighbour when this large, modern café and restaurant opened in Henrik Ibsens gate. Pascal is famous for its delicious French pastries, but you can also enjoy a nice espresso, a warm lunch, a quick dinner at the bar or a gourmet meal in the restaurant in the evening. Pascal Dubuy opened his first café in Tollbugata in 1995, and Oslo's city centre now has four Pascals in the following locations: Tollbugata, Ullevalsveien, Bygdoy allé and Henrik Ibsens gate.

I've eaten lunch there twice the last three weeks while in Oslo on business. The burger both times, the last time also with a chili chocolate cake as dessert.

It can be crowded at times and the toilet facilities are somewhat cramped. And it's not cheap, even by norwegian standards. But the food is good for what they serve, and the athmosphere is nice as well.

We decided to pop into Pascal at random the Saturday we arrived in Oslo. It was the closest restaurant to our hotel, and the menu and cakes looked good. Upon opening the menu we discovered we were in luck - the lunch menu runs from 12-5 except on Saturdays, when it runs till 6, whereas the dinner menu is served starting at 5 everyday. So we had the whole menu to choose from.

I had the entrecôte sandwich with aioli and fried potatoes. It was tasty and satisfying. My wife had trout with fried potatoes and stewed vegetables. She normally doesn't like fennel, but enjoyed her trout with it. My toddler wasn't too happy with his poached salmon and mashed potatoes kids meal - my entrecôte sandwich was far remmories interesting. The best part was still to come however. We ordered a chocolate pudding with raspberry cream centre, and it came with vanilla cream and macerated raspberries. The raspberries didn't last long, especially as we had a toddler with a sweet tooth zeroing in on them. Very good pudding indeed, and the extras were a pleasant surprise.

We arrived just as the late lunch crowd was finishing up and before the dinner crowd arrived. It was a good time to ask for a table. However, service was a little slow. We walked past again later and saw people being turned away. Either reserve or pick a time carefully.

You want to take your girl out for a coffee, but want something a bit more special than your average cafè? Look no further! FANTASTIC cake, great service and good coffee. Stiff prices, but this is Oslo...

Pascal has reduced hours in summer so the first time we tried to go there it was closed. We went back for a late lunch on our last day in Oslo and were glad we did. The food was delicious, fresh, prepared perfectly, subtle, healthy. My fish soup had white fish and shrimp in a cream-based broth with lots of fennel. I don't even like fennel, but this was so good I wanted more. My boyfriend's salmon was cooked just to the moist, melt in your mouth stage. Two glasses of decent chablis. But, forget about healthy, the place is famous for its chocolates and desserts. We had passion fruit mousse and chocolate mousse cake with vanilla fondant. Both desserts came with a tall glass of fresh raspberries in a light syrup, gorgeous contrast in taste and color. Because it was lunch, the meal was somewhat less ridiculously expensive than some of our other meals in Oslo. But, at least at Pascal we felt it was worth the money and the calories!

Had a nice lunch here before joining the tour of the royal palace. Friendly service and price was reasonable.
