I visited this place back in February with my kids and write the review now because they asked me to go back there just this week! From a week of restaurants they remember this one!. the food was very good and so was the service, the only deal breaker is the high tables and chairs that are a bit uncomfortable... More

We went for drink and snacks, the place is nice and crowded, service is good and the food was nice too. Not many menu choices and all dish are small portions use for sharing rather than have your own dinner.

Excellent food. Especially the shellfish. I recommend trying three courses at least. Service was friendly and knew the dishes. Don't miss the potatoes with lemon - a hit!

We were a group of ten inc. young children in search of a restaurant that caters for vegetarians. At Bar Social Eating they were willing to prepare a special veggie tasting menu for us that turned out to be an amazing dinner: creative dishes served in a hip ambiance and a fantastic waterview, friendliest service by good looking international waiters,...

Chose bar Social Eating because it wasn't as busy as the other restaurants close by and so pleased we did. The food was completely amazing a taste explosion so many flavours and textures. We chose the 8 course menu to save us trying to translate the menu which made life easier the food choices they gave us were the best... More

Best location in Oslo, situated waterfront at Tjuvholmen. Food is pretty good, with alot of different choices. But the service, oh boy. Waited 15 minutes to be acknowledged (outside), another 20 to get the draft beer we ordered and then the beer left about 2 cm up until the mark. Pointed this out and was treated as if I was... More

Sunny afternoon. Beautiful quiet location by the harbour. Very friendly waiter and waitress. Had the 4 course sharing menu. 3 out of 4 courses were georgeous. But the pulled pork was far too sweet. Very good drinks.

Same concept as the Social Bar in Vulkan, but with a different menu. We showed up without reservation on a Friday afternoon and although the outside tables were almost all taken, we got a nice table inside. The waitress that served us was really nice, explained the concept when we sat down and also recommended that we take 3 courses... More
