the place is a really nice spot to visit, not only due to the historical factor of the place but also for the food quality. However, go early otherwise get quite busy, even on a Tuesday. they have several local specialties including fresh cod fish and deer (in a kind of burger version). I had this last one but did...

Not sure my vegetarian daughter would have approved of the stuffed giraffe on the stairs, but this place has a great feel to it. We went on a Sunday, so it was fairly quiet, but still had a nice 'hubbub' about it. Service was great and the food was delicious. My one gripe was that we were offered a local... More

This was recommended to me by some other travelers that said locals come here to dine. I thought it was an unpretentious place that served good, hearty food. There are many beers to choose from if that is what you're looking for. I had the reindeer burgers with lingonberries, baby potatoes and green berms. It was delicious and filling. The... More

I went here with a group of friends on a 12 pubs pub crawl, we had booked a table and food. When we got inside we were greeted in quite an unfriendly manner, did not know about the reservation and did not seem that interested to help. Luckily someone stepped in and said we had a table on the second... More

Our visit to this quirky characterful restaurant and bar was mostly unintentional. We found that a neighbouring restaurant we had intended to visit had closed down. Lorry I was told is Oslo’s oldest pub frequented by politicians, socialites, drunks and Norwegian tv ‘stars’. It was bustling when we stepped in out of the cold and (a different) one of our... More

Went there after it was highly recommend by a colleague, ordered carpacio and the house burger. The carpacio was more of a pate then a really thin as slice and I meet quality wasn't so good. The hamburger was simply terrible, the bun was not fresh like it was frozen and defrosted, the cheese was almost solid and the burger... More

This is a place you go to with a group of friends, have several beers each, then when you are a bit drunk and hungry you order the club sandwich and when it gets to your table you will eat it and continue drinking more beers. You will have a good time. No thrills and nothing more to write home... More

For "Viking portions" of hearty Norwegian food, look no further! Both of our dishes were delicious (can recommend the reindeer) and generous. This place has eclectic décor, but is cosy and very popular with the locals. The staff are very friendly, although they were almost rushed off their feet during our visit as the restaurant is so popular (even on... More
