I normally try to write reviews that are balanced, and I'll try to do my best in this case too. Venner is a place that I enjoy going to. The food is okay, same with the service. However, today was a huge disappointment. The "biffsnadder"...More

High prices and a drunk waiter who was trying to bully you when it was commented that he was drunk when he tripped on the doorstep 😄 Not recommended!

I've onøly ever been here for a few beers and never tried the food. So I can't give a full review on this place. But it was ok to hangout here when it was raining.

Stopped by for a lunch found a table outside. Waited quite some time for the waiter to arrive and I had already decided for the fish soup. After another long wait the soup appeared on my table. Great. Ready to dig in. Not! The waiter...More

Unfortunately the acoustics in this restaurant were so poor that it was impossible to talk without shouting and getting really exhausted by trying to follow conversation. We were only six people at the table, but struggled to hear each other. It is 'julebord' season right...More

Venner is a cosy diner in the vibrant Grønland area of downtown Oslo. Good, fresh, quality food, friendly and attentive staff. Great attitude to service and a vast selection of craft beer. I recommend staying for dessert. My panna cotta was delicious, with a crunchy...More
