We came here on our last night in Norway. It didn’t disappoint- the waitresses were great, the food excellent and the prices good (for Norway). All this coupled with good atmosphere and we would come here again! Cheers!

Stayed nearby & recommended by the hotel staff - best pork knuckle I have ever had. Plus a great selection of beers including some excellent ales from Voss & friendly service. Prices reasonable too, for central Osli.

Pa Den Glade Gris tilberedes maten etter "slow-cooking-metoden". Her kan du nyte god mat og godt drikke til en fornuftig pris. "Slow-cooking" er en matlagingsmetode som gjor maten smakfull og utrolig mor. Grillet svineknoke og langstekt nakke av gris, er vare signatur-retter, men prov ogsa dagens fisk eller spis sa mye du vil av norske supper (for kl. 17.00) Fra var suppe buffet . Vil du ha et spesielt ol, prov VPA fra Voss Bryggeri, som vant Innvovasjonsprisen for ol 2013. Vi har over 50 typer ol.
