“Overpriced and no flavours..”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

I visited the main restaurant yesterday (September 9th 2012) for a meal prior to the performance. First; I have never ever seen so inefficient waiters running back and forth, without carrying anything! With my own back-ground from hospitality industry, I early learned that working efficient is a key, and never go empty-handed! Either it is the lay out of the restaurant, or lack of training/follow up from restaurant management.
When the main course arrived, it was cold and I had to reorder. At second try the food was "ok", nicely arranged on the plate, and an average presentation from the waiter - but it lacked flavors. You pay a fortune for eating here, and price does not compare value.
If this restaurant had another location, and not situated in the opera-house and the scenic view of the sea-front; it would been out of business long time ago!

The Olso opera is not an Opera as all the others.... the OSLO OPERA is one of the greatest architecture of today and it's open to the people all day from 10:00 AM. And there is a restaurant, that is TOP NODGE! in STYLE and FOOD.
The researched design of every detail, the spectacular view, the top quality of every menue at reasonable prices makes this restaurant a must to go when ever You are in OSLO.
