We went there twice and the food and service was excellent on both occasions. The food was well served and everything was explained (Norwegian specialities). The restaurant is a little difficult to find but go from the main road, past Starbucks on your left and slightly right and the restaurant is on your right. It was difficult to get there... More

Stumbled onto this place by accident. Major excavation on this street and the restaurant we were looking for was not to be found. The food was expensive ($70US @ for entree + beer) and highly forgettable. Potatoes are the specialty of the house and our waitress suggested we each order one type and share. We did, but there wasn't a... More

I am writing this review in English, so those who have written last comment, could understand it easily. I have been in Potetkjelleren few times, drinking beer, wine, eating dinner (i have already checked out turkey, cod and deer). Atmosphere, service, food are more than okey for me, so we'd love to come back to this place more often. That's... More

This is a place worth dining in if you are interested in fine dining. While it does not offer much from outside, the interior is lovely to behold. It offers a simple design, yet to dine within its walls is a lovely experience. The dishes were well-presented and well put together. It felt as if a lot of thought had... More

There was 10 of us and we are in the cellar where the moise was so loud it was almost impossible to talk with one another. I... More

Visited the establishment with an old friend and had a three-course meal. Started with an apertiff and then asked the Waiter if they had a special "wine-offer". I then agreed with the Waiter that he was to choose a different wine with each course, I would then give him a feed-back. The meal was excellent. Well presented, very well prepared... More

The servant recommended us jaws of monkfish. we tried it. the monkfish tasted quite ordinary. more spice could improve the taste of the monkfish. the deer was good, but the duck was almost raw and lached a spicy flavour. the cellar was an interesting place, but the inverted U in the roof reinforced the noise among the guest.
