Description: Lively and unique... Theatercafeen is part of Norwegian cultural history and an absolute must for every visitor to Oslo. We have been one of the city's most popular places to eat and meet for more than 100 years. You will feel at home in our buzzing atmosphere. This is a relaxed place, equally appropriate for drinking a glass of wine or for dining. Our bar counter provides a pleasant option if you are on your own. Inside the restaurant you can see a unique collection of portrait paintings, all portraying people who are, or have been, regular guests at Theatercafeen. Our chambre séparée or private room seats up to 36 people and is a perfect venue for smaller events. Reservations recommended.

Let's be hones, Theatercafeen has never been famous for its food. It is the atmosphere, the celebrity guests and the history. But - hey - we cake for an early dinner and the good was brilliant. Everyone in the parti was positively surprised. The fish was well cooked, so was the meat. The service was friendly and swift. No complaints, just praise for the old lady.

We didn't pay for our meal but we would return even if we had to. This is not just a restaurant but a piece of Norwegian history. Yes the prices are expensive but so is everything in Oslo. For your hard earned money, you might as well enjoy superb surroundings, impeccable service and wonderfully cooked meals in a truly special place.

See and be seen.

Favorite of Norways upper class.

You will see some billioners, and the food is very good.

If Lobster is on, try it, it it`s wery short cathed, just 500.meters away from Rådhusbryggen.

A bit "snobby", but one of the best resturants in Oslo.

Ekxpensive, but worth every Euro/NOK,
