I've only ever been down stairs in this bar. It attracts some odd people, myself included. But that's the charm. A nice fun and friendly place to drink.

Great bar in Grünerløkka were I visit, if I go for a beer in the area the main street is usually packed and Tamara is much more relaxed no goons on the door actually serching you etc! Friendly barman Marco. Nice touch, and nice seating outside.

Come and drink where the locals drink. Great pub, good music, nice vibe & very efficient bartender Marco. Far nicer pub than any of the other tourist traps.

Get away from the queues, the hipsters, the idiots, the ridiculous prices. Tamara is a cosy place just off the main drag of Torvald Meyers Gate. It's small + cosy. Run by very nice people, too.

Great café and bar all around, cozy and very nicely decorated, staff was amazing and drinks were good and reasonably priced and you get to meet the friendliest people that Oslo has to offer. Spent there the nicest evening in my trip to Norway.

this is the typical bar you have in every neighbourhood. seems like everybody knows each other, and people are in any way connected as a community. the service is ok, and so are the prices. nice outside seating, and nice decoration and ambience. It's a nice place to go every now and then

Tamara has an honesty after being the same bar for a long time, as other places change or disappear. The bartenders are unusually friendly, chatting, and efficient. The clientele can be anything, but often quite experienced drinkers withal least one foot in rock n'roll. The music is classic punk, rock or metal. The drinks are both high and low quality... More

Great little bohemian bar, in Oslo. Daniel, the owner, is the friendliest bar keep I've ever met! He walked us through his neighborhood & gave us a local's point of view, on the local bars & restaurants.

I´ve been going steady with cafe Tamara for a couple of years now- I´m glad to see how well they are evolving in terms of coziness, decoration, music, fireplace, games etc. But the owners are not Norwegian, nor are the bartenders- and this has not been a problem commununication-wise until now. Yesterday a friend of mine got really ill and... More
