“do not be fooled by the view!”
Reviewed 21 August 2013

For once I did not look for a restaurant on tripadvisor, just went with the guts feeling (and the sight/location) and it was a mistake.
The place looks nice from the outside, but the dishes are simple and overpriced, even for Norway.

“Slow and disapointing”
Reviewed 9 August 2013 via mobile

We decided to eat here without checking Trip Advisor first; big mistake! We came for lunch but were told they aren't serving bread dishes. A couple other things we asked for were sold out. It's such a shame as its location and setting is great. We will be more selective next time!

“nice place but terrible service”
Reviewed 5 August 2013

Cafe Cathedral is charming, in the heart of Oslo. Perfect location.
Of course, it's ridiculously overpriced for anyone coming from abroad (9€ the 30 cl draft beer), it's overpriced EVERYWHERE and the quality is very average in general. So, what makes the difference then? Location and nice and friendly service.
Here you have nice location as I said, but the waiter was so unfriendly that it almost seemed like a joke.
Too bad, it was a real nice place to sit in...

“Nightmare”
Reviewed 2 August 2013

This place was so bad that it still makes me laugh just thinking about it. I was questioning if we were the subject of a reality TV prank show at one stage. The menu looks decent enough, except that what you order bears only a loose resemblance to what you are likely to receive. I could spent hours rubbishing the place, but to quickly summarise: Rubbish food, overpriced, horrible service, will almost certainly try to scam you. There was one complaint after another while we were there. As anticipated (seeing as it happened to others beforehand) we were charged for an additional item on our bill. We pointed this out and the guy spent an eternity doing the calculations in his head before giving us a revised figure that was ironically 100kr less than what it should have been. Ha! This guy accidentally ripping himself off was the one high point in what was comfortably the worst dining experience I have ever been involved in. Good for a laugh though.
