Finally a restaurant in Oslo serving honest food for a decent price, including good friendly service and surprisingly better fish than Solsiden on the waterfront. You can also have a conversation here without music drowning out the customers. Recommended!

One of my favourite places to eat, work and drink some wine in Oslo! It is marvellous to sit on the terrace when it is sunny. Good coffee, nice interior.

The lasagne meal was completely overcooked, albeit not warm. In addition he place was noisy and service non-existent.
