Sundays, a lot of places are closed but this restaurant was open. The pizza was good and for a personal size pizza, it was big enough to feed two persons.

On the positive side, this place seems to be open at times when many others are not. The atmosphere is pleasant and cozy in the shadow of the cathedral.

Coffee was ok but the cakes were amazing! I had the pictured traditional norway cake which was lush and my partner her apple crumble! Both amazing! Small but cosy, very quick service.

Potentially overlooked but the food, atmosphere and price were lovely! Sat on the balcony area under the heaters, reindeer, moose and salmon were all excellent. The waitresses spoke English perfectly.

We came here twice during a stay and it was lovely on both occasions. The seating is very close together but the atmosphere is lovely. You can chose to sit outside and they supply blankets to keep you warm. The staff are friendly and service is quick even during busy periods.

We have dinner and everything was perfect. Salad and main dishes had good quantity and perfectly made. A bit pricy but it's normal in Oslo everywhere you go.
