Theatercafeen is a place you have to visit when in Oslo, there is a lot of history in this restaurant and you have a feeling of going back to the 40, the food is ok but that is absolutely not what you are coming for,...More

The interior reminds you of Cafe Central in Wien, but most of the similarities end there. First. This is the only café left in the city centre. Sad, but true. The food is okay, but they have hamburgers on the menu yet serve no German...More

Food and service were great. It was fascinating to learn of the Theatercafeen's history and see all the portraits of famous opera singers and actors on the walls.

Lively and unique... Theatercafeen is part of Norwegian cultural history and an absolute must for every visitor to Oslo. We have been one of the city's most popular places to eat and meet for more than 100 years. You will feel at home in our buzzing atmosphere. This is a relaxed place, equally appropriate for drinking a glass of wine or for dining. Our bar counter provides a pleasant option if you are on your own. Inside the restaurant you can see a unique collection of portrait paintings, all portraying people who are, or have been, regular guests at Theatercafeen. Our chambre séparée or private room seats up to 36 people and is a perfect venue for smaller events. Reservations recommended.
