Description: BAR Tjuvholmen is one of three restaurants under the BAR Social Eating brand and is located on the new and modern Tjuvholmen area just adjacent to famous Aker Brygge. The popular restaurant on the bank is sophisticated, distinctive and stylish with nice atmosphere and a lot of interesting interior deco to fix your eyes upon. BAR Tjuvholmen is a restaurant and bar on the same premises - with equal emphasis on both. Here you can enjoy an evening out or a whole day ... With delicious food and wine, great cocktails and music throughout the evening. The menu is casual and international, with touches of brasserie and champagne. Large, superb outdoor seating.

“Overpriced and boring food.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2013

Luckily I managed to change our booked table. We were first placed on bar stools, and I detest eating my dinner seated high up.
The service was OK, two young waitresses doing their best. Not very experienced though.
The starter, gravadlax with a mustard sauce was quite ordinary. We had halibut as main, and it is the driest piece of fish I have ever eaten. A whole boiled jerusalem artichoke, unpeeled, dry, placed on the plate. God knows why. Some boiled potatoes, some carrot pure, and a rather tasteless sauce.
Did not really like the interior. Not going back.

“Expensive and overrated!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2013

BAR Tjuvholmen must be one the most overrated restaurants in Oslo. It is ridiculously expensive, we paid 90 kroners for a glass of white wine. The food is nothing more than ok and when the waiters ignore you, you definitely don't want to go back.

“Not longing to come back..”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2013

Nice located at Aker Brygge, and a very popular place when going out..
However somewhat expensive, and in the weekends you can expect a big line to enter, not the best atmosphere inside, way too much people for the area..

“Good stuff, excellent service!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2013 via mobile

Really good food and excellent service! Me and my wife went here with a 2 for 1 groupon deal. Very good food, and friendly and professional staff. Worth a visit, if you're in Tjuvholmen.

“The place is nice the food is bad”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2012

We can't complain about the service but the food was over salted even the greens the tartar wasn't impressive!
A place for just a drink if the sun shines....
But we understood they changed chefs..... Bad idea!!
