“Lovely food and wine experience”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

Our party had 4 of the 5 courses (opting to skip the whale), along with the wine pairing. I thought all of the dishes were well-conceived and perfectly executed by the hard-working chef and his assistant. Our excellent waiter was friendly and charming and he kept our wine glasses full. We expected--and enjoyed--the leisurely pace of the meal and although the cost was much higher than we would pay back home, I feel it was worth every penny in Oslo.

“My favourite restaurant”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

I try to visit Fjord at least 3 or 4 times a year. With a menu that changes every week I wont say that I havent experienced mishaps, but the pros easily outweighs the cons. No better way to start a night out in Oslos clubs than on a buzz of this food and wine. To me, Fjord also represents the best value you'll get in Oslo. Service is always excellent in my experience.

“Good food but seriously understaffed”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

We went for the 5 course incl wines and food overall was from ok to excellent. Main highlight was the whale which was better than most filets I have tasted. Good wines as well but due to understaffing we were served wrong wine at one instance. On staff was two people - one to cook and one to serve and that is a recipe for trouble. We waited for everything and made it quite clear that we were unhappy. The waitor did his best but it was an impossible task. This is not the way to save money

“Overpriced and unexciting”
Reviewed June 28, 2013 via mobile

We were there with a group of six, having three of the total of possible six. There is only the set menue and no meat at all. The starter sashimis included whale which was interesting. The warm starter was salmon, very regular dish. Some of us had Asian-inspired soup, ok. The main where two tiny pieces of fish with vegetables. All food was good but quite boaringly presented.
