Oh how I wish we still had small, proprietor owned and run places like Hos Thea in the UK! A wonderful meal with very reasonably priced excellent wine (best piece of duck I have had since a visit to Danube in New York). Super nice, knowledgeable, charming and generous staff (I was happy to be over-ruled on my wine choice!).... More

Oslo is expensive and this restaurant is also. However, for our money we got the loveliest service and the best food. We came to a full restaurant without reservation and the waitresses did everything to seat us - as a result, we only had 1 hour for our food, but it was absolutely worth it. The waitress recommended wonderful food... More

This is a very good restaurant that serves excellent food and wine and maintains very high standards. What bothered me is the so called "sophisticated" type of food. The effort to mix several ingerdients in a complex way rather than make simpler dishes with focus on best taste. Keep It Simple S...d rather than pretentious.

Nice and private restaurant, suitable for a business dinner up to about 10 people. The service varies a bit, but overall the service is good. Food is also alright and above average quality.

This is probably one of the best restaurants I've ever been. The staff is super polite and their English is great. The food is outstanding. The flavours are exquisite. The presentation is full of character.

From the first contact, I was impressed. We wanted to book for a birthday several months in advance (as we are traveling). They were immediately welcoming, and offered to make an off menu item for our child (which she absolutely devoured this evening). The food was delicious, the ambience intimate without being crowded. But what really made it special was... More

Absolutely outstanding. Lovely food, simply not ostentatiously prepared. Nice vibe in a small, intimate bistro style restaurant. Careful and appealing menu. Dishes well prepared, served correctly, beautiful but not fussy presentation. Great service. First rate and a bargain for the price.

Excellent quality and service but not expensive in Oslo standard. Every dish was great from starter to main to dessert (sorbet was particularly impressive). All the servers look happy and served with heart. It is more a bistro style place.
