Fantastic dining experience with great service and tempting menu. Go with friends and share as many dishes as you can. A bit pricey, but worth the kroner if you can get a table.

A French restaurant which is very popular, hard to get a table if you haven't booked in advance. Delicious food, friendly and professional staff. Love this place!

Definitely the best French restaurant in Grunerløkka. The atmosphere is so cozy and French, and our waitress was the best. We had the three course menu, which was amazing except for too much batter on the fried fish. Anyway, definitely going back!

Excellent French bistro in Oslo's Grunnerløkka district. In a city where its often difficult to find great quality and price, this one ticks all the boxes. The staff are friendly and knowledgable, the food and wine list are a cut above.
