Overnight stay in Oslo due to a missed connection. Able to get a reservation at Le Benjamin. Food was very good. Took the three course menu. Busy Wednesday evening, so wait staff was stretched a bit. Result was main course being a little cold. Otherwise a good experience.

Excellent French food. The place is for those who appreciate quality real French food. The place is often packed so reservation is definitely recommended. Great service good food. The place can get noisy but then again that is very French!

The food was delicious (beef tartare for starter) and it reminded me so much of the food I used to have in France (especially the entrecôte!).
