    Dinner & Drinks, April 2015

    During our stay at the Hotel Continental in Oslo in April 2015 (Please see also review.) we visited the hotel's bar and lounge Dagligstuen.

    It is clearly visible from the entrance and was busy, no matter when we passed by. We checked the menu and liked what we saw.

    The bar is large, has a gentlemen's club atmosphere and design and is infamous for its Edvard Munch art pieces Arne Boman Hansen, the owner at the time, bought in the 1950's for 5.000 USD.

    Since nearly all tables were gone, we took one closer to the window and behind a column. I was a bit worried we would be overlooked, but there wasn't any reason. Service was flawless at all times.

    We were greeted friendly by Cecilie, who took care of us for the rest of the evening.

    Cecilie left us enough time to make up our mind what we wanted to order.

    We had two orange juices, two glasses of Michel Turgy Champagne, two Vitello Tonnato, one "Our Snickers" and one Crème Brulee.

    Cecilie asked if we were very hungry and even so we said we weren't that hungry, she promised she would bring us a fresh bread basket with the meal.

    She was concerned if we would like the meat-fish combination when she heard it was the first time we were trying Vitello Tonnato.

    The plate looked like a work of art and was healthy with lots of green leaves, very thin slices of veal and tuna-caper sauce. It was delicious. The bread was plentiful and lovely.

    We were intrigued by "Our Snickers", so we had to try it. The "snickers" was slightly longer and wider than a real Snickers. It was made with chocolate, peanuts and salted caramel ice cream. It was a highly interesting and creative dessert. We loved it.

    The Crème Brule was perfect. The caramelized sugar crackled and the custard was smooth and creamy with a light vanilla flavor.

    We talked about going to bed soon, because we had an early start the next morning. It was already around 11 PM, overhearing our conversation in passing by Cecilie brought our bill quickly.

    It was 1.028 NOK (ca. 121.60 Euro or 136.50 USD) and very well worth it in such beautiful surroundings.

    Cecilie found the right balance between being professional, warm and unobtrusive.

    We liked the attentive service, atmosphere and quality of the food.

    We can recommend a visit and will return, when in Oslo.

    Would we recommend this venue to a friend? YES!
    Would we visit again this venue in our future? YES!

    Thank you and safe travels. :)
