Restaurant details
Dining options: After-hours, Breakfast, Reservations
Description: Modern bar and brasserie with an international, relaxed atmosphere. The building was originally an eletrical transformer station, and the 12-metre ceiling gives a unique atmosphere to the room. Bolgen & Moi's brasserie offers innovative food and will recommend wines from the extensive wine list. The restaurant serves everything from oven-baked pizza to 5-course menus, and a popular breakfast buffet is available Thursday-Saturday. The large bar serves a great selection of cocktails, snacks and treats from a wood-burning stove, and in summer you can enjoy your meal on the large outdoor terrace.

“Allways good”
Reviewed 14 March 2013

The ambiance of this place is terrific. Situated in the heart of downtown (westside), Briskeby, the restaurant offers both great food, brilliant serivce and smart decor. Every saturday there is a champagne lunch, at night the main dining room is perfect for a family/friends-dinner, while the more casual bar seats guest for a less formal culinary experience. The kitchen serves both parts of the restaurant.There is a lot of people during the weekends so make sure to book a table. Live music/DJ makes the experience one of a kind.

I find myself going back quite often and I have not been disappointed, yet.

“Horrible service”
Reviewed 8 March 2013

The food is good enough, but the only thing I remember every time is the lack of service. Last time I visited, we were a group of 13 on a Friday night, and we had to go to the bar to order wine after sitting with empty glasses for ages (several times)! I might still come back though, for the good vibe and the fun Saturday Champagne brunches.

“Super Brunch”
Reviewed 2 March 2013

The brunch buffet is a real trenchermans winner with a good selection of foods and an almost unlimited sunday brunch hour (well 11.00 to 16.00) Excellent espresso coffee to finish with and good selection to start (although the smoked salmon was a bit dry and sub-standard - strange for Norway) I particularly liked the the way the deserts were presented as very small delicious portions, so you could still have a taste if you didn't want to take two or three.

“lunch for 3”
Reviewed 21 February 2013

perfect looking place. Fully packed with people all the time. Seems like a great meeting place for a drink and a quick bite. Looks more joyful and live in the first part of the restaurant. More funky feeling. We were seated in the 2nd area. Service was good, but food was of mediocre taste and rather expensive. Very few salads to choose from, and too few light alternatives for lunch plates.

“Awesome place, kind of crappy food”
Reviewed 15 February 2013 via mobile

This place is rocking - particularly if you come for the Saturday brunch and then just staaaaay and party :) Any other night, the place is kind of quiet (although very cool venue), service is not awesome and food is definately so-so. Recommended? Yes for a Saturday, no for other nights...
