Food was ok. The decor is boring and the food is kind of the same. Service was nice with a very helpful waiter. The location is perfect so they should really try and improve a bit!

This is our favorite restaurant in Oslo. We keep coming again and again and again. It is very central in Oslo if you are visiting. A bottle of bubbles is a must.

No parking that we saw, but it's located on a corner close to the main commons area in the city center, just a few blocks away from the National Theater, where I believe there's a subway stop.
