“Genuine Norwegian food well presented.” 5 of 5 bubbles
Review of Oslo Spiseforretning - CLOSED

Restaurant details
Dining options: Dinner, Highchairs Available, Reservations
Description: Restaurant over three floors, where tradition and innovation come face to face. Working alongside small-scale producers that supply quality ingredients, the restaurant offers the delicious taste of pure Norwegian food, while an ever-changing menu and modern combinations ensure a touch of creativity. The wine list is varied, with something for every taste and wallet. The interior and colours in the main restaurant retain the style of the building when it was established in around 1925. Open-air café in the summer.

“Genuine Norwegian food well presented.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2012

I think it is wonderful to be able to eat genuine Norwegian food which is well presented and tastes excellent, and compared to the high prices in general in Norway, I do not think the restaurant is very expensive. The staff is really service minded.

“great great great”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2012

it was one of our best dinners we had!
we really like good food and quite often have dinner outside...but this is defenitly a place we will never forget and can highly recommend to everybody who loves haute cuisine with "plain fare". The food was absolutly delicious, versatile, plenty. It was absolutly great taste.
But also the waiter was really good! He was not only very friendly but also engaged and seemed like he was really enjoying what he was doing and very helpful with the translation ;-)! So we really felt like "guests"!
Just the decoration is not really our style, a bit "square". But well, this is really a question of taste.

“Norwegian food at its best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2012

Local ingredients and a passion for quality, a bit pricey but it was an experience! Very good food and the waiters knew exactly where each ingredient came from, down to the name of the farmer. Impressive!

“well priced, great food in the historical center of Oslo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2012

Perfectly situated in the true historical center of Oslo, this charming place give great service and ditto food. Be aware that it is a small tidbit outside the current center, and rather quiet, abt 5 minutes with tram from Railway station or 15 minutes walk. from the Opera.

With a simple outdoor facility and a more old fashion charm indoors, it is a perfect starting or ending point from a stroll through the nearby medieval ruins. Make sure you visit the Ladegaarden on the other side of the street with its renovated baroque gardens as well as the Bishops palace and the Medieval park just below! Be aware that they are rather small, though... but charming!
