Do NOT eat here. The hamburgeren is awful. IT was Not made of Meat. IT is a waste of money. I did pay But I regret I did. Never go here. I told the waiter about the burger But I got no response.

It was the first place in which I stopped for a bear in Oslo. This style of place is pretty rare in Portugal and I was in love from the beginning.

Huge helpings of decent traditional dishes at reasonable prices. Have not tried the thai food. Can get a bit rowdy late at night, which is not neccessarily a bad thing.

Olsen is one of very few restaurants in this area of Oslo. It's a cosy, small restaurant with good service and good food. They even have bands and concerts in the weekends :-)

Stayed at Helsfyr on business for a week. This place is a hole if you thing hotel restaurants are way too expensive and you need contact with normal people, as in not ending up next to a business discussion or you just want a big beer with your food. I travel a lot, and I love a good restaurant with... More
