Dear mam,
After talking to my staff and looking at the reservation list I feel like you have given us an unfair rating. On the night you visited us we were completely fully booked. The fact that you had a child with you have absolutely nothing to do with it, it was a simple matter of that we did not have an empty table for you, We might not have looked ''packed'' to you because all the reservations had not yet arrived. I promise you if there had been a table available that you would have been welcomed warmly. There is a reason we are so busy, and that is not because we turn away people at the door or because we discrimenate.

I'm really sorry that this had lead to a bad experience for you. I just wish you would have waited until you had actually enjoyed our good food, beer and Hospitality before you gave us a rating.
Next time you are in town make sure to give us a Call first or book a table through our website.
With kind regards
Geoffrey Jansen van Vuuren

Amundsen is a great place if you like beer and like to taste a number, as they serve small measures enabling you to taste a number,
Foodwise they are not brilliant. Lot's of fried "pub-food" that is fairly indstrialised. A few specialities are cooked (as opposed to fried) and are fairly good.
Good for beer (and sports on TV), below average for food equals an average place

Amundsen is located at the heart of the Oslo. The place is very nice and so are the people working there. They serve burgers, fish and chips, steaks etc. and they have different types of beer to choose from. It is a little bit more expensive here but it is worth the price!

Have been to Amundsen several times, and have also used it several times for business meetings. Amundsen is located very central in Oslo, and they have an excellent selection of beer, they also make their own beer. Amundsen also serve typical pub-food like burgers, steaks, fish & chips etc. and they off course also use beer when they cook the food.
The service is very friendly, and they are very good at recommending different kinds of beer. Prices at Amundsen are expensive, but thus is what you should expect in downtown Oslo. The restaurant gets very full, so if you are arriving late, or have a larger group it is highly recommended to book a table.

I was here in the afternoon with family (including a two year old) and the service was fabulous (friendly, quick and observant). The food was excellent and the beer menu was complete and interesting. I am really happy to have another place downtown :)) well done, guys!
