Pila

Rumors & Newly Opened Restaurants
Closed

Located in Grünerløkka in Oslo, in the basement of DOGA, Pila was a Nordic bistro. Restaurant LOKK joined forces with the coffee and beer bar Hendrix Ibsen. The name Pila was inspired by the big willow tree (piletre in Norwegian) in front of the restaurant. Martin Guin Troset was the head chef in the restaurant. Andrè Jæger Walderhaug served a simpler lunch menu with typical coffee bar-style food items like toast. Pila closed in 2018.
