I was taken here by a local friend. Truly a place of choice in Oslo. I had the duck and paired it with a nice Italian Barbera which we shared at the table. The duck was well prepared, tender and really tasty. I like the atmosphere. It was warm and spacious. This place lends itself to those special occasions when you want to do something classy and special for someone.

We like Cafe Christiania very much and go there often (once a month). Service is very good, and same goes with the food. It is also very well priced, especially considering that you are in the heart of Oslo.
One thing though: it is surprising that you describe the type of cuisine as Norwegian, when this is a Bistro, and there are so many French dishes on the menu.
Anyway, very recommended place to enjoy a nice meal at very reasonable prices!

Thank you for taking the time write this lovely review and share your experience with others. We constantly strive to improve our services and it is always refreshing to receive positive comments like this, so thank you! The Norwegian cuisine description is more of an indication that our menu is based on Norwegian produce but with a touch of the French cuisine.
Hope to see you again soon!

Most sincerely,

If you've had a lot of cod and fish soup in Oslo and are in need of something different, this is the place. Beef bourguignon was outstanding.

We decided to stop by this restaurant and have lunch as it looked pretty good from the outside. Coming in, we weren't disappointed as the decor was very quaint, with lots of vintage knick-knacks adorning the walls. We ordered a beef steak with fries and a seafood soup respectively.

The seafood soup had cod in it and a rather interesting sour taste, unlike bouillabaisse. My dad's beef however was a tad overcooked and tough and nothing to shout about. Our bill came up to 400+nok. Overall, pretty average food with average prices (by Norwegian standards) but good job on the decor and ambience. Service was also pretty decent.

I highly recommend this restaurant. The setting is beautiful the food was tasty and the service was friendly. They had a nice children's menu but the overall feeling was charming, warm and nice. The prices, by Norwegian standards, were not too high. Our family was treated to lovely warm service and the food was really very good. Overall I think this was one of our best meals in Oslo and I would highly recommend this restaurant!
