The salat with salmon, the green curry soup and the pan- fried pollock (this was what I ordered) were delicious.

Not amusd - food was rubbish and plain and not the ingredience it stated in the menu - and when we tried to complain to the owner he just did not want to know - so we think it is wrongly overrated although the waitresses was pleasant enough -

An amazing meal on a quiet night. The fish (Lysing/Hake) was superbly prepared with fennel and winter cabbage. Delicious with the buttery sauce. Together with a crispy extra dry (3 g/l sugar ) vibrant Bauhausrock riesling from Mosel, it became an superb combination! The chocolate fondant with a glass of Mas Amiel was also a winner. Good and friendly service... More

Hi Thank you for taking the time to give us a feedback. Our pate is NOT factory made. But I realize that you may have expected it to be hot or warm. Cornichons, we will lock at, these should not be rubbery We take your input into our work to become better. Regards Charles & De More

Great for buisness dinners, dates, a night out with your mates or with the family. It is a bit pricy. But then again, what you pay is what you get. Not only do i recommend... More

Description
Mathuset Charles & De opened its doors in 2005. The name tells of exquisite taste and the importance of good cooperation. Charles Tjessem was given the title world champion in 2003, when he won the gold medal in the prestigious competition Bocuse d'Or. He has also been the general manager for the Culinary Institute and captain for the Norwegian Culinary Team.

Tjessem is known for its great commitment to craftsmanship based on selected ingredients from local food. He is uncompromising with regard to the quality of the finished result and clever to let talented employees forward. With the team he has a select group of highly skilled professionals who will go to great lengths to thrill you.

Teamwork & Passion is the secret to a good working environment. If you visit us often, you know that we like to renew the concept periodically. We like challenges and loves to dream up new and improved ideas. The menus changes 5 times a year. It gives us the opportunity to focus on the best seasonal ingredients and prepare them according to etiquette when they are at their best.

Our values ​​are reflected in what we serve. We are concerned with honesty and purity - pure flavors, pure ingredients, clean employees and clean kitchen. We believe in transparency. We are popular, but snobs with cigars are of course also welcome with us.
