“A Traditional Friday's in the Heart of Oslo”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2013

I visited Friday's with a friend of mine in Oslo. Normally I steer clear of restaurant chains when traveling to foreign countries, but my friend mentioned it was her favorite...so...in we go.
It was a gorgeous April afternoon in Oslo, and we sat outside - yes, in our jackets - but the weather was delightful if a bit cool. The view from the patio was amazing so I'm glad she picked this particular place to eat.

The food was traditional Friday's fare, and was prepared very well. Sometimes chains do differ significantly in other countries from their US counterparts, but no difference here. The burgers were big and juicy and very good.

The waitstaff was very courteous and prompt - very good. Overall, enjoyable and definitely recommended - especially if it is nice enough to sit outside!

“Traditional TGI Friday's experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2013

Decided to eat here one evening during a business trip to Oslo. It was a typical TGI experience with friendly staff, good food and a busy atmosphere. Service was prompt and friendly, and the staff were very attentive and cheerful. It's located on the harbour front so there is plenty happening and you have a good view of the harbour and surrounding landscape.

“Three good things: food ain't one”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013 via mobile

There are three good things here: amazing view, free soft drink refills, free wifi.
The rest: forget about it.
I was dragged in it by friends, but not the sane Tgi like in Usa: here it is the bad clone, but more expensive.
Sloppy waiters, dirty, cold food too cooked and McDonald is better: that tells you all.

Probably the best Friday's in Oslo. Nice seating outside as well as inside. Great place for some beers as well as some food!
