Just off the main thoroughfare in town, Karl Johans Gate, and nearby Parliament building is where you'll find Café Christiania. It's also short walking distance to Oslo's uber-trendy waterfront, Aker Brygee.
The atmosphere is very warm and inviting with a touch of old world charm. As we entered the restaurant, my companion and I was greeted cordially and shown to a table by the window. It was a Thursday evening, on the later end, so the restaurant wasn't crowded at all.
We settled into our appetizer, a lobster bisque, which was very tasty with the right amount of ingredients and not overwhelmingly creamy (as this dish can sometimes turnout). We then proceeded on to our Main course, the spring chicken with an assortment of root vegetables and spring potatoes. This is a whole hen (and takes approx. 30 mins to prepare) though what comes out is near perfection. It's nicely baked and seasoned just right. To note, It's a healthy helping (which I happily devoured as I was quite famished indeed) but if you're not terribly hungry, this selection is perfectly shareable.
Overall, a very solid experience with fairly priced offerings (relatively speaking of course) in an otherwise pricy city.
