The waiter was absolutely rude. He shouted at us when we told him the food wasn't what we have ordered and, of course, he didn't change the order so we had to eat that instead of what we asked for. The service was absolutely disgusting.

I guess it's supposed to represent an old-style, traditional Norwegian family restaurant and that it does. We had salmon with boiled potatoes and a cucumber slaw. All were well-prepared. Service was friendly. The room seemed rather dark and dated. Overall, not exciting, but, I guess,...More

Friendly greeting and good service. It was a quiet night as it was mid-week. We both had the lamb as recommended by the waitress and were not disappointed. It was cooked perfectly and very tasty.
