I had high expectations for lunch at this famous restaurant but was ultimately disappointed. The lunch menu was an uninspiring list of cold sandwiches (smørbrød) with three choices for mixed platters. I ordered the "luxury plate" which consisted of the Christmas special pork rib, a meatball, some smoked salmon, a pile of shrimp, a breaded piece of fish, some herring and accompanying sauces. The shrimp was not fresh and from the look and taste of it, not much different from the packaged, deshelled shrimp one buys at any grocery store. The food was good but not great and definitely not worth the 350 NOK I paid for the luxury plate. The wine was very good but at over 100 NOK for a glass of chablis and 40 NOK for an espresso, the "extras" doubled the cost of the total bill. I would not recommend this for lunch unless it is convenient and you don't have high expectations for a special culinary experience. I suspect that dinner is much better.
