Hos Thea is a very nice, small restaurant with excellent food. It feel like coming home to someone you know well, welcoming and heartwarming. Outstanding food and great wines, very serviceminded waiters. I will definately return!

We visited on a Monday typically a slow night in Oslo but this place filled up. I am not surprised. The food, ambiance and service is spot on target. I always try to find a negative but I can't. Great wine and cocktails menu, small but well planned menu, serving sizes not too big or to small. Loved the entire... More

Hos Thea, gives you all thats great with tratitional french cooking. Butter, cream, and sugar. It's a cosy place off the beaten track, great personal service, and food to die for. A great place for a celebration with friend, or a romantic dinner.

This restaurant is a gem for the private person out for à pleasant meal with friends. This is well appreciated. Less known is that it may serve as a good meeting place for smaller group meetings such as our five member committee gathered for the final evaluation of a PhD thesis. Partly thanks to the the good meal and atmosphere... More

Few restaurants can match the atmosphere at "hos Thea". Classic style with a warm and welcome atmosphere. This time we were a large group and the final touch suffered a bit due to this. But previous times I have had several outstanding meals with excellent wines. Recommendable!

I guess that it's more than 15 years since we were at Hos Thea last time, but what a pleasant reunion! Hos Thea offer top quality food, nice and charming environment and very good service from well qualified waiters and sommeliers. We will definately visit Hos The again in the near future!

I visited the restaurant for a night out with my colleagues. Because everyone was given a chance to join, we weren't able to be there before 9 in the evening. The restaurant said that might be too late, but made an exception for us. So serviceminded! The food was great, the wine was great, the atmosphere was great. The night... More

The menu selection is not huge, but the quality of the dishes is very, very high. Good quality ingredients and excellent preparation. The wait staff is knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Good wine selections by the glass.

Hos Thea has been around for many years and is still one of the best there is in Oslo. We were 7, rather spoiled, business friends that truly enjoyed the 4 course menu with some variations. The food dishes are creative and somehow Sergio manages to keep the flavors of the ingredients distinct in each creation. My favorite is so... More
