Bad service. Fish soup ok. There should be better restaurants in Oslo. Walking in the area (next to the sea port) is nice.

Comfortable restaurant that's a great place to try local food. Excellent fish soup and different sampler plates big enough to share. Service was friendly and food was affordable (for Norway), so we came back twice! Would recommend!

Very nice restaurant in a new and nice area of Oslo. Typical food, like the whale, is perfect. The price a bit high but in the standards of the city.

I've seen people making reservations for 7pm. If you go before 7pm and have a small group, then you will be able to get a table without reservation. The two times I was there it was not very full (I was there between 5 and... More
