We found the kitchen is open for lunch from 12 to 16, then again for dinner from 17. On the lunch meny today were steamed blue mussels, pasta with bratwurst, at around 160 nok. The dinner menu, when it appeared (along with the chefs, straight from the market) contained grilled scallops, some reindeer fillet or other, at prices that were... More

We sat outside and ate from the limited (but delicious) menu. Great vibes due to the many locals there and yummy fresh food (the fish was amazing). Service was good and the waitress was very helpful.

Kampen Bistro is a cool, laid-back neighborhood restaurant with excellent food and great atmosphere! They have a large balcony and often have concerts going on as well. One of my favorite Oslo restaurants!

Due to its location in Kampen next to Tøyen t-bane stop (2 stops from Oslo central station) is more of your local eatery/pub than anything else.however the staff is brilliant once they've realized we are tourists they translated the menu for us and helped us . The menu varies daily so you have a starter few mains and some deserts... More

The menu is VERY limited. They had 1 appetizer, 2 mains, 1 dessert. A suggested wine pairing for each course is also provided. The menu changes every day and is written on a chalk board that is moved about the restaurant as needed. We choose to dine outside as the weather was nice and warm (it seemed it would be... More

This is an eclectic bistro. It is casual and relaxing. The food is very high quality and they offer wine pairing recommendations with the food which I tried and found to be very good. It is also a cool place to hang and out and drink beer. They have an outdoor terrace also. Our waitress was really pleasant and all... More

Third time we have eaten here, in an area we visit annually. This experience followed the previous night's meal at the new Nord&Natt by Toyen Station - the comparison between the two quite stark. Kampen Bistro has lost my favoritism! The menu remains small - one starter, a meat or fish main, and one desert. The 3 courses cost a... More
