Excellent service, but then it is a rather intimate space, and good but not outstanding food. A bit expensive and traditional but worth a try.

We were absolutely alone in this restaurant and it was not a big problem for us. We had a 7 course dinner. Service was good, but very slow inspite of there was not anybody except us. We liked all the meal, they were not big but very well decorated!

I just moved to Oslo from England this past month and had a friend treat me to a wonderful "secret" restaraunt that he knew of. I guess it is hardly ever busy. Before we went I took a look at this sight and translated some of the reviews and have to admit that I was a little scared to eat... More

Julius Fritzner is located upstairs in Grand Hotel, and pretends to be a grand restaurant. They offer a choice of 3, 5 or 7 course dinners. We tried the 5 courses. The only nice dish was the red wine sorbet ("cleanse the palate"). Oh, it all sounds good... sole, duck, lamb, etc. But every dish is a mish-mash of flavours... More

The decor of this restaurant mostly reminds of "old school" French restaurants. But the 7 course tasting menu is absolutely a´modern and high class cuisine. Innovative but, not a 5 star tasting experience even though the produce is high class. Service is very good, and this restaurant deserves way better ranking in the Norwegian papers.

If you have enough to spare I really would recommend this restaurant! It's my favorite! They really make wonderful elk and reinsdyrs stakes! The ambience is quiet.

Had a wonderful meal here. 5 courses with perfect wine combos. Superb food with lots of flavours and interesting twists. Expensive, but well worth it.

This restaurant was such a wonderful and unexpected highlight of our trip to Norway! It is the venue where the banquet is held each December for the Nobel Peace Prize winner. From the moment we entered the restaurant the service, quality and presentation of the food could not be faulted. This meal was one of the finest we have ever... More
