Real French bistros can be a challenge, especially if you encounter the right (or wrong) type of waiter. In addition, the food can vary from excellent to plain bad. This bistro was, on the other hand, a fantastically positive surprise. Located in a very popular...More

You could easily spent 150 eur on a pub lunch quality meal in Oslo. Or... you could go here. For 1300 kroner the two of us enjoyed a large plate of charcuterie and foie gras to share, one main of large Atlantic prawns and one...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.

Dinner on Saturday night, full-house bistro in a live neighbourhood. Busy Swedesh waiters, normal prices in Oslo, narrow tables, small seats, slow service, Ok food and after we left, nothing to remember... back again? not sure!

This convivial bistro feels almost like a neighborhood club--many of last night's diners were kicking back as only regulars can--but two hungry Canadians fitted in just fine. The three-course prix fixe dinner, at under 500 krone (I forget the exact amount) was well priced for...More

Le Benjamin is a French bistro with a very nice and cozy charm and the kitchen is good. Here you get French-inspired food with fine Norwegian ingredients, for example if you choose fish. Here you find the most French classics and it tastes good. Good...More
