We had an amazing dinner at this small but elegant and comfortable restaurant! The blond girl serving is very friendly and nice; we loved the way of serving the dishes and of course the meat was very very very good.

My friends and I had dinner at Trancher for several times now and we all agreed upon the score: Excellent!!! Definitely the best entricôte I've ever had, always served as I requested. The side dishes are simple, yet so tasty and perfectly suited. The sauces give an extra touch to the flavour. The restaurant is small, nice and very cosy.... More

If you enjoy entrecôtes, this is the place for you. This restaurant serves entrecôtes and nothing else. And they are slow cooked and delicious. Your menu choices are different hors d'oeuvre, sauces, different add-ons, vegetables or condiments etc., and desserts. The wine list is great. It is a recommendable place, and make your reservation well ahead because the restaurant is... More

I can honestly say this simple concept is just so excellent. Steak is perfectly cooked, chips just so crispy and a bernaise sauce was excellent. If you are in Oslo you must eat here it super super super.

This is me and my wifes go to place when we have a babysitter and need a good steak! Always a warm welcome and always a good entrecote (rib eye) steak. They have a good wine list and a warm atmosphere. It is a place for meatlovers but they do serve good starters like scallops and foie gras. And the... More

Small - yet pleasant and charmy place. Entrecote in various sizes is what you get - of course with a variety of side-dishes. Affordable prices and friendly staff.

We went to Trancher an evening of August finding a very typical Norwegian restaurant in the lovely district of Gunerlokka. We tasted two fantastic and high quality Entrecote of different weight, one of 400 and one of 200 gr served with a wide selection of sauces and fries. The steaks have been cooked in a traditional Scandinavian way, at low... More

There is possibility for out door eating. Hamburgers are rather tastety. Sallads are not really good. You can find much better places and price worthy further north of the same street.
