We visited this restaurant in February, as we were looking for a steakhouse in downtown Oslo that wasn't very formal. We managed to get the last available table early on a Saturday evening, and though there was a time limit on how long we could have the table, they did not rush us. In fact, everything was so efficient that we enjoyed our meals and had time to sit and chat afterwards.

I was pleased by the fact that they bring glasses of water to your table without asking, which is not standard in Norway. The staff were also very friendly and clearly knew what they were doing. The food was of a good standard, with a slight minus for overcooked asparagus, but considering that we were also paying less for our meal than other restaurants in the neighborhood, that didn't detract much from the experience.

We were slightly misled by the online booking system into thinking that there would be more tables available than was the case. This was due to it being a fairly small restaurant, albeit charming with wood and brick, and large windows. So if you decide you want to eat here, I would recommend you book in advance.

We were going to have a quick lunch on a saturday and know this chain of restaurants from Denmark.

It is a very good substitute to other steak houses in the city centre, and the prices are low, so you get a very high value for your money. I ordered a 99 NOK steak (190 grams) and it was cooked perfectly.

I will come back

Jensen's biffhus is a Norwegian steak house that serve a very few dishes, and serve them well. I opted for the pepper steak. In Norway, pepper steaks are usually badly under-peppered. Not so at Jensen's. It was perfectly peppered, and tasted great.

Low points: I had to ask for olive oil for my baked potato three times, and their beer is not great.

My wife and I were arriving this small steakhouse at a friday evening around 9 pm. They have around 10-15 tables inside, and almost everyone were in use. I guess we got the only available. The waiter was quick to get us something to drink while we studied the menu. As a starter we both chose the Garlicbread. They were tasty and a good start for us. As main cource I chose Fillet steak and my wife chose Veal Entrecôte. We both chose medium fried, but they were somewhere between rear an medium. But not that rear that we sent them back. For dessert I chose Lemontarté and my wife chose chocolate pralines. The Lemontarté was exaclty like a lemontarté I have made on my own kitchen. Not wery special. The chocolate pralines was just two pices of filled chocolate.
But after all - It was a nice evening with good food an good and effective service.
