We had late lunch at the place and really enjoyed our experience.
Fish and chips were very delicious.
The place is a little bit pricy but having in mind the location and Oslo standards visit was worthy.

While visiting Oslo, we came to Lektern twice. It was sunny and warm for both visits which made the experience even better. The first time we came for lunch. You order at the bar which can slow things down when they're busy. We stopped the second time for drinks. It is a great place to people watch while enjoying a beverage.

If you want to sit outside and drink food and eat bar food this place is ok. Limited selection of ales. Nice view of Akershus festning.

Popular with tourists and locals alike, not possible to book a table but the staff will endeavour to find you a space. Visited on 1 June, maybe the hottest 1 June in Oslo's recorded history. We took the advice of the staff and arrived in the 1800 - 1900 window, a slight lull between outgoing office workers and incoming locals and tourists, and our group of four had no problems getting a table. It did fill up rapidly from 1900 though!

When the sun is out, this has to be one of the most popular places in the harbour area. It might not be to everyone's taste; it's hip, lively and clearly attracts a lot of people. If you don't want the loud music, keep walking past the first tables, it gets a bit quieter.

There is no waiter ordering service, drinks and food are ordered at the bar (though meals are delivered to the table). Some didn't seem to like that, but worked for us. Surprisingly, drinks aren't exorbitant, especially considering the prime location. Three beers and a cider with change from NOK350, bargain! Between us, a selection of prawns or burgers, all less than NOK200, again, not outrageous. The food's good, not outstanding, but good. I'm not sure this is a place for fine dining, more a place to have a drink and food with friends, enjoy the sights and the atmosphere. In that respect, it works.

When you have a so good location , you should do your best to give quality food and good service. I dont get it . The prices are ok but the quality poor , order through vipps ?? or at the bar in the line ?? Why ? Why when you have a diamond at your hands to not make it shine ? The only reason for me to stay was a waitress with the name Kasia . She was caring and helping so much . She even helped me to download the app at my new phone and she helped with the menu . Super positive person that can surprise everyone with her communication skills , politeness and care ! If you want to go to this place take only a beer because even the coffee is not good . chill under the sun and let them know that they can change . Is pity to be like this ... :( I wish for a change and i wish to this fantastic girl to find a job that she deserves ! the 3 stars are just because of her . I should put just one .
