Well, the news is out and most surprising part is that Bagatelle loses one of its two * and totally undeservedly so.

Amongst the restaurants in the Frogner area Bagatelle definetely is in a league of its own, and rqanks way above both Feinschmecker and Le Canard who both keep their one*. Shame on the guide for this demotion!!!

In the Oslo area Restaurant Oscarsgate and Haga gain 1*, very nice (I'm hardly totally objective having a personal interest in the former of these two).

Wow - that is a nuclear bomb!!! Is it due to the lack of presence of Eyvind Hellstrøm in the kitchen??

Is it completly out of the blue or has the food there been lacking lately? Very nice with two good restaurants beeing recognized.

Defiinetely not as of lately, I believe that the last 23 months the kitchen has become even more focused and cutting edge than ever before, BUT in the fall there was a period where I felt that Bagatelle's performance slumped ever so slightly. Alas, this might have been just the time that the inspectors were there.. :sad:

Haga getting a * was quite shocking for me. Last time I was there (Nov 07) the food was an absolute let down. I know every kitchen can have a bad day, but a * restaurant can't fail completely like they did the evening I was there. It was actually embarrassing on their behalf and I hope Terje Ness reads this. I'm a fan of his cooking and he's a great chef, but that only makes it worse, since I had high expectations....

can you elaborate on how it was a let down?

btw, I thought the massive changes Le Canard has been through would mean that it would automatically loose its star? Or has the head chef been there through the new ownership?
