Our starters -- oysters, onion soup, grilled chevre cheese salad and beef carpaccio -- were all very good. But the main courses are kind of disappointing. The beouf bourguignon was too lean to my taste. I prefer a more fatty cut with more connective tissue. The duck confit is not salted and the skin was not fried till crispy. The... More

After a long day of work and really hungry I was taken to this place. One of my colleagues had the burger which he said was very good (did look good!!). I had the boeuf bourgignon and was delicious. Very tasty indeed. The service was very slow and is sort of becoming a pattern on the few places I've been... More

Downloaded the Aker Brygge app. Placed my order, met Madelene at the door and received impeccable service from there. Breakfast was wonderful croissants and baguette, smooth and warming coffee, and freshly squeezed orange juice. Received a table by the window watching Oslo winter over the water. Love it every time we visit! Highly recommended!

Tried a three-course set menu before a show at the Chat Noir. A glass of sparkling before the food tasted good on arrival. Perfect gratin scallops with herb butter and grilled lemon for appetizer, then cod back with vegetables and quail egg butter. The main course was very good, but showed signs of having been under the heat lamp for... More

Nice restaurant, cozy interior and ok food. Unfortunately the service is very slow. We waited 15 min to get any attention from the waiter and another 10 min to get some bread. The menu and food is ok

We had an amazing last dinner in Oslo thanks to the lovely guys at Albert Bistro.

We had a Croque Madame and a Croque Monsieur for lunch. Both tasted delicious. The interior was quite appealing, warm and comfortable. The service was OK as well. We will be back some other time. Look for more reviews by MulleEllum.
