The restaurant is often busy, pretty small and can be somewhat noisy. You can opt to sit in the bar; but don't, there will be much traffic behind you. The food is French, and not bad. The confit canard was somewhat dry; and my starter...More

I was really looking forward to this, having researched where best to eat during our short weekend break in Oslo. And, when first walking in, I found the atmosphere lively, warm, and inviting, and the service good. But... the food just didn't cut it. The...More

Fantastic dining experience with great service and tempting menu. Go with friends and share as many dishes as you can. A bit pricey, but worth the kroner if you can get a table.

A French restaurant which is very popular, hard to get a table if you haven't booked in advance. Delicious food, friendly and professional staff. Love this place!

Definitely the best French restaurant in Grunerløkka. The atmosphere is so cozy and French, and our waitress was the best. We had the three course menu, which was amazing except for too much batter on the fried fish. Anyway, definitely going back!
