A server at another restaurant suggested Le Benjamin when we asked where he'd recommend we visit for something a little more local. It did not disappoint! Cozy, casual and clearly loved by locals this was our favorite meal in Oslo. The wine list was excellent....More

The food is French style. We had a really good meal. We went there on a Tuesday evening and the bistro was crowded with people. Good service despite this and a cozy and informal atmosphere.

This is a bustling restaurant where the excellent food was matched by the service. The schnitzel, one of the plats du jour, was sublime. This wonderful dinner came at a price although you have to bear in mind that everything in Oslo is expensive when...More
