The interior was nice, but the food was disappointing and quite over priced. The main course was huge, which was just a waste of food. I prefer quality over quantity, this was just a lot of bland food with little taste. The waitress seemed nice,...More

I visited at the end of November, so the menu had already changed to the Jul season, so most dishes were themed after the Xmas celebrations. Not surprisingly, I opted for a reindeer that was tasty and extremely well prepared. The service was prompt and...More

Lively and unique... Theatercafeen is part of Norwegian cultural history and an absolute must for every visitor to Oslo. We have been one of the city's most popular places to eat and meet for more than 100 years. You will feel at home in our buzzing atmosphere. This is a relaxed place, equally appropriate for drinking a glass of wine or for dining. Our bar counter provides a pleasant option if you are on your own. Inside the restaurant you can see a unique collection of portrait paintings, all portraying people who are, or have been, regular guests at Theatercafeen. Our chambre séparée or private room seats up to 36 people and is a perfect venue for smaller events. Reservations recommended.
