The halibut was not so good. The fish was over cooked. It had no flakey texture but a dry and crumbly texture. The meat itself had no flavor. Halibut is... More

The restaurant is small and you need to take tram from oslo central station which required 5 min ride. The chef menu including lobster soup and scallop were excellent. The staff was really nice and friendly. They also gave a free dessert though we ordered one to share only!

It was overcrowded, place is extremely small. It is super loud at there is plenty people talking at the same time. Food was good, but portions are very small. I dont find it comfortable when people is sitting so close to me. It goes into my comfort zone and is pretty irritating. Maybe some other people can find it cozy.... More

We were four of us to dine in this cosy restaurant in Oslo, in a cold evening with winter's first snow. The atmosphere was very friendly and the service really top. Each course was explained in details by the helpful, smiling waitresses, and, the most imortant thing: everything was perfectly prepared and very tasty. We chose a Nebiolo which matched... More

I was here as part of a phd disputas dinner and the restaurant was reserved for the the dinner party. We had a set meny and people were very happy. The main course was deer medallion, and even with 40 guests, it was cooked to perfection. Service is subtle and attentive and the and the bistro atmosphere very cosy.
