The menu changes every now and then, so go here with an open mind (or check their webpage in advance). We went here a few months ago and had a terrific, but laid back experience. The female server was very professional and let us take...More

Fantastic evening, the best food and wines, served in a very relaxed and fresh designed restaurant. It's owned by one of the best master chefs in Norway , Lars Erik Underthun. We will strongly recommend this restaurant in Oslo.

Perhaps we were there on an off-night. There was only one other couple in the place. Admittedly, we were there in early July, and they were closing for the summer break in the next few days. The food was good, but nothing special.
