We were looking for a cheap place in Oslo (normal) for dinner but we got tricked by tripadvisor... It happens sometimes unfortunately (but really rare). So we went there and finally found price same as in Christina... So disappointed.

We popped in here during a 3 day visit to Oslo. We didn't have a booking but at 6pm the restaurant was around half full so we had no problem getting a quiet table in the window. The restaurant is a clean minimalist contemporary design and is very comfortable and pleasing. The food was really very good (except for the... More

I had dinner at this restaurant. Restaurant was closed, opened for our group of guests. Therefor the atmosphere in the restaurant wasn't great. The quality of the dishes was great, service went too fast. Service of the waiters was so/so. I was invited, haven't seen the bill I assume it was pretty expensive. Good food, service mediocre.

I have visited the restaurant at several occations. The staff is excellent and very friendly. It is a good place for corporate dinners. However, the food is currently a few notches down from what it used to been IMO, considering the price and all..

This being a first time visit to ORO, we were all pleasantly surprised by the nice and warm atmosphere in this rather small establishment. We chose the 5-course set menu which seemed very well composed for this rather gloomy Oslo evening. The food was excellent - especially the fish courses. And the service was absolutely the best I've come across... More

We decided to spurge a little bit at Oro on our last day in Oslo in June, and was not disappointed. We chose the three course option (anymore the prices really would be a little too much). And love their take on fresh regional ingredients. Especially the use of mustard tasting ransom, and norwegian brown cheese from Haukeli as a... More

We had scallops, Steak tartar and Salmon, One beer and One fanta. Around 900 kr. Service was OK. It is near the Scandic and the restaurant had a few large groups.

I visited Oro with my wife for our last meal in Oslo last night. We hadn't made a reservation but they were most accommodating. Food was splendidly cooked and reasonably priced by Oslo standards. Would very much recommend as it was a classy friendly restaurant.
