Bad service, the food is not tasty at all. The waitress let us pay of something that we have not eaten??. All of them have no focus with the customer at all. They are just hugging each other in the bar. Our first and last...time with Olivia Aker Brygge. I wouldn’t recommend to anyone. They don’t even give us the receipt on what we eat! Such a bad experience!More

Stopped for a quick lunch and was not disappointed. Was greeted by a lovely Swedish host who led us to a great table outside in the sun and a cheerfull waiter took our order. We had the pizza arlecchino, which at first I was sceptical...to since it’s a white pizza and I usually don’t like that. But wow! It was probably one of the best pizzas I’ve had. Very tasty and fresh. It was just a perfect time spent at Olivia Aker Brygge with great food, glass of beer and perfect sunny weather.More

I had a bad experience unfortunately. A friend, and I visited on 21/08 Friday at 22:15. It was supposed to be a pleasant evening for friends, but unfortunately those who attended did not allow us to have a good experience. Our desire was to get...up and leave, but we were left with no reaction to such rudeness. First of all, those who answered us put us on a table where there were already two people and when we sat down they felt very uncomfortable. He claimed that the table was for four people, but at the time the restaurant was empty and other tables were available. When we asked him to change tables, he clearly didn't like it and put us on a dirty table. He threw the menu on the dirty table and insisted on showing that we were not welcome. We asked another waiter to clean the table and he placed our order. The order came quickly, but we had to wait for the silverware to arrive. To sum up it was a terrible experience, maybe if we had gone with our husbands who are Norwegian, we would have a decent service. We feel humiliated unfortunately. At the time there were three people serving. A black girl with a braid, who attended to us at the end when we asked for the bill (served us very well), another tall, blond boy and attended to us after the coarse and the coarse, a tall bearded Mediterranean, he insisted on being very attentive to us badly and I would sincerely like it to be revised, I don't know if it was prejudice because we are black, or because we didn't speak the language, or maybe because we arrived forty minutes before the kitchen closed, or if he was tired. I just know I was indignant and when I see these pictures of the dirty table and I remember the poor service, I get very angry with myself for not having the courage to leave the place.More

Arrived at 7.50pm- they close at 9pm and the guy at the door said sorry we’ve already taken last orders so it’s too late!!? After my husband told him firmly they close at 9pm and it was only ten to eight and we had driven...45minutes and he can’t turn us away he finally reluctantly let us in if we promised to order very quickly!! We could only chose between salads, pasta or pizza. We ordered 1 pizza, 1 pasta and 2 chicken salads with bacon. After 25 minutes they brought out 1 freezing cold pizza without the correct topping and 2 salads with a lump of freezing cold chicken and a lot of mixed lettuce and 2 cherry tomatoes. There were a few slices of cold cured serano ham on top- no bacon. The chicken was so cold you could hardly bite into it. We asked the waitress if the food was supposed to be so cold and she said the pizza should have been hot but the chicken was so cold. I showed her the lump of chicken and said it was freezing. She said she would change them. They brought a new piping hot fresh pizza out with the correct toppings on and we wondered how long the last pizza had been lying on the counter. The salads were the same as before. A lump of freezing cold chick thrown onto a bed of lettuce- you get a better salad at the petrol station- were there actual chefs in the kitchen at all??!! New customers were still coming in 30 minutes after we arrived and a waiter came over and said he was taking last orders 45 minutes after we sat down!! Come on Olivia- this is a disgrace!!!!!More

Sorry to hear that, you were unlucky. As to having to queue, well that must be expected at the peak of the tourist season for most of the restaurants at Aker Brygge. Actually, Olivia is one of the few restaurants I will eat... More
