“Outstanding View”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2014

Our group was a table of 14 on a very busy Thursday evening. The view was very impressive, the food tasty (don't go there too hungry as the portions are sufficient but not generous), a good selection of very decent wine. The service was, however, a bit too brash for a restaurant of it's calibre. It wouldn't stop me going back there, but I would prefer a bit more attention to detail and not being treated as just another person who makes up a large party.

“Great place for great food, and what a view!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2014

What a place, what an experience, and the view is breathtaking.
Best thing is actually the tailored service. They are courteous, flexible and professional, and have no problems dealing with multiple allergies and special requests. The food is really good, looks good and is presented very well. To top it off they have a pretty good wine selection.
On top of all this it has one of the best dining locations in Oslo with a view overlooking downtown as well as the fjord.
You simply cannot go wrong with this place!

“Fab view, good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2014

This is one of many reviews I've written about Ekebergrestauranten. This review is based on my latest experience in the more casual outdoor restaurant on the terrace. No reservations are taken as far as I know. We arrived on a sunny Sunday before noon. The restaurant opens at 12:00 but at 11:30 all the best tables were taken. By 12:00 it was full. People started to line up, but it was not organized and Norwegians are not the very good at forming queues, but it seemed to work out okay in the end. The guests were a mix of young and elderly, families with kids and couples on a date. The outdoor restaurant is for everyone! The menu is limited, but has options such as stone-oven baked pizza, mussels and Caesar salad. The price range is between 100 - 200 NOK, a cheaper option than dining inside. Service is good and water was brought to our table immediately.
I had a Caesar salad and my husband had a brownie with ice cream. The salad was tasty, my only complaint would be that the croutons tasted like cake - a tad to sweet (but probably to balance the saltiness of the salad) and the bacon was hard.
The brownie was cheap, but was cold so it was not fresh and came from the fridge, but not too bad.
The best thing about Ekebergrestauranten is the view. You can see most of the city and it's a great spot to see the new Barcode district. I would definitely go back for another lunch, it's a great place for good food and a fabulous view to go with it.

“Great Food to match the Great View”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2014

We were leery of this restaurant, since we had read reviews that the food wasn't that good. Wrong! The food and presentation were excellent, and - to us - matched the awesome view of Oslo from its southeastern side. In particular, the maître de was very friendly and accommodating, even though we had just arrived from hiking nearby Ekeberg Park in our casual clothes with a backpack. He prepared a glass of wine for me while we waited for a table, and he placed us at a window table with a beautiful view of Oslo.

“Fabulous location, great food. Pricy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

The location and physical space were great, with a good atmosphere. I found it interesting how many were drinking beer with dinner instead of wine, but that is obviously a local preference. Best food is definitely the local fish, which you could choose from and have cooked as you prefer. Located in amazing sculpture park, and as the sun does down the views are spectacular. Overall, highly recommended. However, not cheap (of course, nowhere in Oslo is....)
