The restaurant has more than 200 types of beer (this is what it is famous for) and it has a bar and a dinner area, very good food (delicious), good service,traditional Norwegian and international food. Try the fish soup, the reindeer burger or the lamb leg. Prices are high. ( 3 persons dinner can be 300 EUR)

Big choice of beer from all over the world. Great selection. I had le chouff houblon, not easy to get in Oslo. Order a mutton stew, it was great.

Good beer, not too sure about the food. We went here for christmas dinner once. The amount of salt in the food was crazy. I wouldn't goback here for christmas dinner again. But i'd try out their normal medal. They've fixed the kitchen after a few well known problems. So they deserve another try

Table for ten reduced to eight did not seem to have any impact on the energy - the whole room is filled with loud laughter, talk, cheers and toasts with large and small glasses. Well dressed and presumably nice and disciplined people behave liberally ... in a very yulelike way. Service very lively and responsive, serving some of the very... More

Situated just behind the castle it's easy to find when you're downtown in Oslo. It's a typical norwegian restaurant and in the summer season they do have a outdoor section as well. It's a good place for enjoying some beers or drinks together with friends but when it comes to food I have not been convinced yet, normal service.
