A very pleasant surprise. Ate in a Michelin recommended restaurant in Oslo, this was better. Food and service ranks with 4/5 stars in NYC.

The menu lists few items, which gives you well focused cooking and almost no waiting. My choice, tenderloin, was well prepared and tasty. Service was friendly and with the right level of attention.
