Just like its more mature Harstad sibling (1996), this Tromsø-restaurant celebrates the French and Italian love of food, but gives it a North Norwegian character. The obvious focus for De 4 Roser is, of course, on the combination of food, wine and service. Local suppliers and local produce is an important factor in the menu. De 4 Roser can seat 60 and features a contemporary kitchen and an interior that is both simple and austere. This is an excellent venue for both small and large occasions. The first floor café is designed in a European style and the coffee and lunch menus are just as good as in Harstad. A dinner and large drinks menu is also available. Food is served daily from 10 am.

This is the only place we ate for our 3 days in Tromso!

I had read this was a decent place to go value wise and so we stopped on for a late lunch/dinner meal. It was burger day but the waitress was very friendly and offered us salads or others meals instead even though they weren't technically on the menu. We went the burger anyway. You can't really get... read more

lovely lunch with a copenhagen touch (liver pate on rye bread) - plenty of food - nice atmosphere - price worthy compared to norwegian prices and also to what i expected here due to hype (white guide / tromsø guides etc). friendly staff (order at counter - food brought to table). have not tried dinner but would not hesitate to...

We visited the restaurant due to the good reviews and we were not disappointed. It is located upstairs, above the cafe. There is a nice atmosphere and it is decorated tastefully with some interesting artwork on the walls. The only slight let down is the view is not as good as some of the other restaurants we visited in Tromso.... More

We went to the restaurant, and the food was of the highest standard, we loved it! It was a just little confusing, the (very nice and professional) waiter seemed to assume we wanted 4 courses, and you could not order single courses, just what they had on. We would have loved four courses, but we didn't have time! The waiter... More

Nice cosy cafe that serves good food at a reasonable price, and that's tricky to find in Tromso as a international visitor trying to reconcile the cost of food in northern Norway. Can get quite crowded and at times felt a little out of place as this is a locals cafe but the staff were nice and the food fresh.

This review is about the cafè, not the restaurant. There`s really competition in the city now among this kind of cafès. The concept is informal and much liked by a lot of people: The menu is limited, you order and pay at the counter, the food is brought to your table by a waiter. The tables are really close together... More

Been here with my family, friends and people I've dated several times for years. I love to introduce new people to the restaurant - 'cause it gives such an impression - and I love their reaction to it. Right off the bat it's luxury to all of us and we easily get excited from this experience. At first I have... More

We had lunch in the 4 Roser restaurant some time late fall in 2014, and tried it's Tromsø sister in January 2015. The food was great, the prices nice, but the location and coziness of the Harstad restaurant could 't quite be matched. The ambience, however, was second to none, quite crowded and with a lot of people enjoying themselves.... More
