Bristol Grill chambre separée

Choose between a chambre séparée with room for 16 people or a wine chambre with room for up to 10 people. Both rooms are furnished with dark details, great chairs and subdued lighting. The latter got its name because the table is placed in the middle of beautiful wine coolers, creating a cosy and great atmosphere for the evening.
Here you get a separate 3-course Christmas-inspired menu for NOK 1,500 per person.
