This is me and my wifes go to place when we have a babysitter and need a good steak! Always a warm welcome and always a good entrecote (rib eye) steak. They have a good wine list and a warm atmosphere. It is a place for meatlovers but they do serve good starters like scallops and foie gras. And the... More

Small - yet pleasant and charmy place. Entrecote in various sizes is what you get - of course with a variety of side-dishes. Affordable prices and friendly staff.

We went to Trancher an evening of August finding a very typical Norwegian restaurant in the lovely district of Gunerlokka. We tasted two fantastic and high quality Entrecote of different weight, one of 400 and one of 200 gr served with a wide selection of sauces and fries. The steaks have been cooked in a traditional Scandinavian way, at low... More

There is possibility for out door eating. Hamburgers are rather tastety. Sallads are not really good. You can find much better places and price worthy further north of the same street.

The food was very good indedd, so was the wine. The bes of all was the street scene in a vibrant and... More

Staff = 5 stars. They are just lovely and brilliant. Setting = 5 stars. Very nice. Food = 2 stars! I ordered the £45 steak - they specialise and ONLY serve steak. I had the Entrecote and a £12 glass of red (actually I pushed the boat out and had 2 glasses). They don't ask how you like your steak... More

You get what it says, but the execution of both the meat and most of the sides could be so much better. Very nice service. Good size.

Maybe the shortest menu I have ever seen is a great concept. However, being Norway, consistent quality meat can be hard to find. Even for professionals. I have been eating three times at Trancher and on this last visit the meat was not better than ok. My kid complained that his dad cooks better beef. Too bad as I think... More
