Simply a very basic family restaurant, with very, very basic food, not very warm either ... Staff OK But all nothing special at all.

Walking into this charming restaurant is like taking a step back in time. It's an old historic building that has a very comfortable atmosphere. On a previous visit we had lunch in front of the fireplace in the bar area which was so cozy. This visit we ate in the main dining room but in a very quite corner. Our... More

It is sometimes nice to come into an old traditional restaurant. Wall to wall carpet, white table clothes, candles on every table and plenty space between the tables. The menu is quite limited which I think it is good since it means that they focus on the raw materials and there is an effort to make every dish perfect. We... More

Both the gravlax and the chicken salad we ordered were very well cooked. Service was kind and attentive. Prices are a bit on the high side.

We went there with colleagues. The food was pretty good however I found the service quite rude - especially when it turned to select the wines. I really have problem when waiters try to push the most expensive wines and do not respect our choices. With wine, count about 1000 NOK per person.

Went there in November for a business dinner. They strongly recommended their Christmas specials, the fermented trout for starter, and dried, lye-cured cod ("lutefisk") plus the salted/steamed lamb ribs for main. All of those were in some ways unique, not like anything I have tested before, and it was excellent. For dessert I would strongly recommend to try the sweet... More

This is a very old fashioned type of restaurant, serving what is billed as Norwegian fare. However, our biggest bone of contention was that once we were seated, we were told that as a party of seven, we had to have a fixed three course menu. This greatly increased the cost of our dinner.

Another reviewer mentioned whale (which is what attracted the diner next to us, but it was not on the menu tonight, there was reindeer instead). Also mix of regular meats and fish. Light on veggies, small potatoes with all dishes. Nice presentation, innovative mixtures on the plate, but no "wow" factor. Comfortable, old world atmosphere.

This is a pleasant restaurant in Oslo where there is the formal old world restaurant inside and a pleasant area for outdoor eating – when the weather is fine and warm! We had to eat in the garden as we had not booked and there were booked groups in the restaurant, but the food was the same and was well... More

We were a party of four who ordered a three course menu from their a-la-carte menu. The waitress was very pleasant and had very good knowledge about both the menu and wine/ beer recommendations. We had an amazing dinner at this very charming restaurant, surrounded by a historic atmosphere.
