We went there on a very chilly and windy day, took a table near fireplace and ordered soup with fresh fish and other seafood. It was just perfect :) Very nice place.

Good food, accompanied by a great rustic aquatic atmosphere! Good location, right on Aker brygge. Laid back and relaxed. Service could be better, still a great place

From there it was time to re-fuel, and we found a great spot en route to the next destination. Rorbua had some Norwegian goodies, like that fish soup, open faced sandwiches, pancakes (crepes), and all sorts of Norway’s fisherman history on display. Next to the fjord gives it a great location for people and water watching. With dishes at about... More

As I had a visiting friend from abroad, I wanted to provide a Norwegian experience, and opted for Rorbua. In addition to a variety of traditional meat dishes, they also serve several fish dishes. We particularly enjoyed smoked whale as a first course, and also the cloudberry cream for dessert. Main courses were salmon with a butter sauce and a... More

I came across this place while walking along the water and it was just as I hoped it would be. Warm, inviting, and delicious! Our server was really friendly, making sure we had everything we needed without being overbearing. We got a Christmas platter to share, and it was the perfect amount of food for 2 of us. Andddd.... it... More

We ordered a skewer including whale, reindeer, deer and beef. Was all cooked to absolute perfection. Staff were helpful and polite, but not too pushy alike most restaurants. Staff were helpful in helping us to decide what food and beverages to try. Was a very casual and laid-back atmosphere. Highly recommend.

We chose this restaurant because with the Oslo Pass you get 20% off. Food tasted amazing. The Taste of Norway meal was one skewer of 4 pieces of meat and a side of salad. 1 whale 1 reindeer 1 deer and 1 beef. The pieces of meat were about three bite sizes each. It is not enough to feed two.... More

My diner at Rorbua was amazing. Great service, superb atmosphere - with a small fire to warm you up - and very good food. I stayed there the whole evening and had to be kicked out otherwise I would have never left. One person: soup+dessert= 287 NOK

A typical seafood place, but had a burger. The food was good as well as the service. Would try seafood next time though
