Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Unfriendly staff. Unhelpful staff. Inflexible with allergies. Not a nice experience whatsoever.. the staff stood around the bar when tables clearly needed to be tended to

During our recent stay in Oslo from 22-24 June we visited this restaurant twice for dinner. This restaurant is water front in Aker Briggye in Oslo. On both occasions we tried seafood in this restaurant and every item turned out to be excellent. We tried...oysters, Cod fish and also halibut and all turned out to be excellent. Fishes were absolutely fresh, perfectly cooked and delicious. They also have an elaborate wine selection from many countries. Prices are Norwegian standard ( which is higher than European standard). We were lucky to get tables on both days without having any prior reservations. Location and view from the restaurant is superb and if you want a relaxed atmosphere then this place is highly recommended.More

Would love to be able to comment on the food but we were ignored by the 2 bar tenders when we walked in and then when we interrupted their conversation we were told to wait a minute . When the hostess came over about 5...minutes later she then totally ignored us to work on the computer . We then left . Constructive criticism Acknowledge your customers exist !!More

Nice dinner with good food and service. Ambiance is stylish and quite modern with respect to the history also. You can enjoy a good sea food meal here.

Stumbled across this restaurant by chance. It is a traditional Norwegian restaurant so we thought we would try it. Decor is really nice and relaxing. Staff were very friendly and. helpful. When looking that the menu we realised that they had a section entitled “three...of our favourites” and there was a selection of two me yes with wine pairings. We both went for the caviar, reindeer, lemon desert. It did not disappoint. All three dishes were very good. It was a good opportunity to try something I would not normally choose. The wine pairing was really good too, we went for the large which gave you 2 glasses of the red wine with your main course. I would come again and try the other menus choice.More

The seafood is amazing and the view by bay is breathtaking. The staff is very friendly, accommodating and helpful. They might be very busy in the summer but they are always ready to accommodate.

Walking around in sunny Oslo, getting thirsty and hungry, we decided to stop here for a light lunch. The service was very courteous. We had Caesar salad with chicken and a small creamy fish soup, both of which were delicious and kept us going for...the rest of our day sightseeing.More

The food is not good enough to revisit. Had my steak overcooked twice, and the third was just partially edible. We all had similar experiences regardless of the diffrent orders. The prices are quite crazy even for Oslo. The servers were nice but stressed as...they were getting complaints by nearly every diner in there.More

We went for dinner at Louise last night and had a terrible experience. The man at the door was rude. We explained to the waiter that we’d checked in advance about child menu and were told they offered half portions. We then ordered 2 Half...portions and were told the kitchen were unlikely to accept it and they then confirmed they wouldn’t. We were then told they couldn’t offer the pasta with plain tomato sauce so we asked for plain pasta, no butter because our daughter has a dairy allergy. We were told we’d still have to pay the full 250kroner price which we accepted begrudgingly. We also asked for potato gratin to be swapped for chips on. 2 dishes. We were told this could only be done if we paid for chips as extra. After a 50 minute wait our food turned up. The cod and chips were cold. The pasta was covered in butter and the wine we ordered was unavailable. It then took 40 mins to get our bill and no discount was offered. We spent £395. We will not be going back.More

Terrific spot for lunch, on the waterfront, with a well-trained staff and a great menu and food and drink. Hard to find any fault with this place...except maybe, quite busy and popular. Full menu including different seafoods as expected, traditional Norwegian menu, great shellfish, sandwiches,...and plenty of posts. Outstanding place for lunch. Suggest you either go early or request a reservation (we did not, but were seated anyway... two-level restaurants). Highly recommend with no qualms at all. Enjoy!More

I don’t think I’ve ever left a 1 star review. This was a tourist trap and I think they are definitely buying reviews. We went with a party of 4 and ordered a little of everything to try including the fries, skagentoast, tartare, seafood platter,...salmon, and sirloin. Of all of that, nothing seems to stick out as good in my memory and it was a very pathetic amount of food for the atrocious prices. The waitress was obviously new and overwhelmed, she struggled to make recommendations. She was unable to open or present the wine and never returned to refill our glasses. When the steak tartare came, it almost looked like raw hamburger meat, definitely not ultra high quality like I would expect for a *very* expensive raw meat dish. We were a little unclear how to eat it since it was served with lots of little accoutrements including a raw egg yolk so we asked. We were told “I would not have ordered that, but you’ll still be paying for it.” It felt so demeaning and still did not answer our question. The wait staff did not come to check during the meal and we felt overall disrespected. We tried to remain as pleasant as possible in the moment but as I walked I away, I realized how much of a racket it seemed. The prices feel like something I would expect at one of the best restaurants in Oslo and the prior reviews led me to be excited but instead we were left with a completely 1 star experience.More
