The place is very inviting and warm, and makes you feel comfortable and welcome immediately. A member of the staff warmly welcomed my wife and me. I will get back to my overall impression of the service at the bottom of my review. We had three dishes (495 NOK): Onion soup, beef main course, and passion fruit mousse with coconut... More

With many sparkling facets, this restaurant is a hidden gem. We were welcomed and thoughtfully attended to by the owner, a polymath restauranteur, chef, sommelier, blacksmith, and artist. Offering excellent pairing of wines with outstanding creative dishes in a cosy setting, I strongly endorse whatever the staff recommends!!

Going out on your own in the rain, without directions or instructions looking for that one great restaurant in Oslo is not always a good idea. Not even if you think to have remembered that Gamle has something to do with the old town. So after entering the - what I thought - entrance of the Gamle district at St... More

Fantastic feeling of old days, but with an up to date menu. An old blacksmith and bakery, now an excellent restaurant and a gallery. Charming and god value for money. A glass of wine in the courtyard in the summertime is a must, view to the Vålerenga church.

With little to no expectations I was pleasantly surprised by this amazing little restaurant. We were welcomed by a caring smile and the waiter that evening was on point. If we asked for 5 minutes she came back after 5 minutes on the second, and the restaurant was full of guests. The food was a story on its own. It... More

Smia is a hidden gem! First time for us. Great place, lovely people, fantastic athmosphere, but could have wished a somewhat more extensive menue. Decided this is our new restaurant to invite our guests!

The food is delicious, but expensive and with slow service. The acoustic environment makes the place noisy, and sometimes a normal conversation at your own table is difficult hear while talk from other table comes in loud and clear.

Had the three course dinner, it took just over 2.5 hours. Pros...Loved the cute rustic feel, and place is located across the street from beautiful park. Service was very friendly, just way too much time between courses and place wasn't very busy. Spicy Thai Mussel soup was delicious, as was accompanying deep fried soft shell crabs and chipotle mayo.
