This place is well worth a visit. The restaurant is nice and the staff are very friendly. The choice and quality of food was superb and we had a great time. We would go back if we ever go back to Oslo again.

We tried a lot of the dishes. Some were good to OK (e.g. bacon dates, aioli with bread, Spanish meatballs), and the rest of the dishes were disappointingly forgettable.

We left with the feeling that we make better food ourselves.

Will probably not visit again, and would rather visit Hanami, Pink Elephant or Ling Ling.

This restaurant was very close to our Airbnb and we were very pleased we chose to go there. The menu is varied and we found the tapas reasonably priced by local standards. The red Sangria was the best we’ve had since holidaying in Spain. Service was very good.

The party menu offers a variety of tastes. All cheeses, fresh salad, tasteful serrano ham, olives and the green peppers worked very fine for starters. As for the main dish mussels and the meat fillet is what I enjoyed most. Big portions of mussels - perfect on a hot summer day!

Free coffee included when ordering the dessert menu - chocolate cake was yummy.

However the prices does not make it worth coming back for me. Too high prices for just 0,3L beers as well - but this is Tjuvholmen.
