“Steak house?”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

Went to this restaurant on 2nd of August 2013, We tend to stay away from chain restaurants but as we left it a little late to go out in Sandvika this was the only place we could find easily and with the kitchen still open. I ordered the ribeye, looked good on the plate, served with nice crispy fries and bearnaise sauce (like everything in Norway). Sliced into the steak, served rare and it was mechanically tenderized cheap rubbish beef, instead of being pink in the middle it was a horrible translucent grey colour and the texture was extremely fake. This was the second worst steak I've ever been served at a restaurant and I can't understand why a steak restaurant can't get it right. The manager might as well be managing a petrol station or something because he/she obviously has no interest in food.

“Bad concept - dry steak with corn”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

Don't know what they have have been thinking about mixing huge steak to overprice with corn on the plate. Really ruins the dish.
If you want a big steak, can choose the size, which is overpriced this could be your place. The big horn concept has lost its value.

“Nice looking Place, but food not to great.”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

The service wa Ok, the restaurant itself looked good. I had the burger, and it was horrible. Cheap meat, bad taste. It was just not nice. The sauses was ok but obviously mass produced. This is a fast food, McDonalds type restaurant, with a bit better service and a poor tasting burgers. I heard from my friend that the steak was ok, but I think the whole restaurant is really overprized compared to what you get in return. I wouldn't go again.
