Mouth watering norwegian food. Great location near harbor. The salmon salad i had was the best. Their burger and fish soup were good too. Service was fast and friendly but we just had to transfer to the farthest table because we could smell the gas from their open fire in the middle of the resto..

Great location by the harbour. Whilst the menu selection was small the dishes we received were sublime, such a great mix of flavours and textures. Surprisingly good value considering the cost of Norway. Also if you buy an Oslo Pass you get 20% off here.

The food was authentic and local, providing a good taste of the Norwegian cuisine. The service was good and the price was reasonable considering the location.

Came here between Christmas and New Year - not realising that a large percentage of restaurants close in Oslo during this period, so initially we were struggling to find anywhere to eat. We had dinner here on our 2nd evening. it's located in the trendy Aker Brygge part of Oslo and very easy to find, we went based on previous... More

Fresh and much better than many others. Usually I am not the seafood guy but here I learned to love it. We've had the fish soup, moose and deer. Absolutely first class. They even gave us great ideas what to do in the area when they were about to close. Thanks again for the great evening.

Food was splendid! I highly recommend you to try it if you are... More

Probably one of the best fish soup in Western Europe. You have really chunks of fish and whole cray fish. It is more eating a fish than drinking a soup. Great place and nice service. Btw beer from the tap is good, does not hurt...

After an absolute wonderful meal at the Engebret Cafe, our party of 5 decide to go to the waterfront for an after dinner drink. After one drink the bartender rudely implied we were drunk and refused us Service! After one drink. OK so we asked to pay our Bill and this bartender refused to even take care of the Bill.... More

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.
