Rodin’s Bistro & Bar in the city center you will find the Cathedral and Karl Johan, as part of the Comfort Hotel Karl Johan. The bistro offers French art of cooking, with quality ingredients and oysters as a specialty – not to mention the evocative, French-inspired backyard. Rodin’s menu focuses mainly on good Norwegian or Nordic ingredients from reputable manufacturers and suppliers. The bar serves light dishes, while the bistro stands for French classics like bouillabaisse and entrecote. Oysters are part of the bistro’s signature, and comes directly from the Oslo Fjord, Swedish West Coast and France. The interior can be described as a mix of intimate, French elegance and Nordic modernity. The furniture is in warm earth tones, with decorative brass fittings for extra finesse. The patio at the backyard takes up the French love of café life, with sumptuous chairs in rattan and several social mingling spaces.
There will be an updated English meny shortly.
