The Egon Restaurant has two locations in Oslo, one at Paleet building/shopping centre on Karl Johan's stret and the other at Byporten shopping centre at Oslo S railway station. The menu is basically the same, and the style, interior deocrations the same. Very rustic, things found in old barns and what have you. The Byporten one is very busy, so I prefer the Paleet one.
It is not my favourite restaurant, but it is a good place to go for after-work meals, waiting for an evening event, or if meeting friends at the end of the work day.
Favorite Dish: Egon has a very affordable and good pizza buffet. As much as you want...
If not so hungry I go for their nachos platter.
A good a la carte selection beyond pizzas, too.
Other dishes also available, plentyful portions.
They serve 0,6 L draft beers, a welcome change from the old "half-liter" that inflation reduced to 0,4 in most places.
A great breakfast buffet is served at Egon, a lot to choose from. The price for the buffet is 114 NOK.
If you stay at the Scandic hotel Byporten the breakfast is included. See my tip on Scandic hotel Byporten.
This Restaurant was very good and has a good selection off food and drink. I found the staff to be very friendly and the seating choice to be very good. Was good to have a place to eat in the city center other than tgi Fridays and hard rock cafe.
Favorite Dish: A good variety off food hard to pick a favorite.
Egon has a chain of restaurants in Oslo and, in Norway in general. They are famous for their Pizza Lunch buffet, where you can have as much pizza as you want for about 20 USD. In Oslo there is one right next to the central station, one on Karl Johan Street and a couple at a bit less central locations. They offer menues in several languages, at least Norwegian, English, German, French, Italian and Spanish. The food is good and resonable priced, but it is not a culinary experience.
Egon is also located in several other norwegian cities. Check out their website for more infor and menu.
Egon is very relaxed and family-friendly. It is not a elegant or sophisticated place to eat, but the food is great. It has menues in many different languages so it's the perfect place for tourists. The menu consists of salads, steaks, fish, tex-mex, pizza.. it's something for everyone. The prices vary between 12 dollar and 36 dollar. The restaurants are decorated with antiques and weird objects (picked up from a local flea market??). Egon has different restaurants around the city, but the best location is in Karl Johan where you have a great opportunity of people-watching from the tables on the sidewalk.
Favorite Dish: The hamburger is good, so is the baked potato, taco wraps and the club sandwich.
Egon is a network of restaurants around Norway. Serving normal international food as well as local traditional. It was part of the deal with the Scandic hotel and I had my delicious breakfast here every morning.
It's a casual restaurant propriate for any event. The food is cheap, the atmosphere is calm, but one doesn't need to be all dressed up to go there.
Favorite Dish: BigBurger, a double American burger, the best hamburger I have tastet
The restauarnt is good fun and pleasant. The one thing to note is that you need to order and pay for everything up front and give your table number.
Aside from this, excellent place to eat!
I really thought it was strange that you had to pay before you even had any food.
But the food was great and when you're
finished you could get away immediatly.
Favorite Dish: I had one but forgot it's name.
