This was one of the more affordable places we ate at in Norway. They had a pizza buffet that my husband took full advantage of and got his krone's worth out of it. I had a steak sandwich which was quite good. The restaurant itself has a nice ambiance with lots of nooks and smaller areas to the restaurant so... More

This is an ideal restaurant for business people (like me). I travel on my own, I want to have a meal without too much fuss, with enoug light to read a book and quick service. At Egon, you order and pay at the bar (like in the UK, but in Norway it is a novelty). Egon is perfect in this... More

Too few staff to cope with the numbers at breakfast. Large swathes of empty food trays. Hot food containers not working resulting in cold food being disposed of by the staff.

It''s Tromso's equivalent to the above mentioned and similar chain restaurants where you pick a table and pay at the bar when ordering. The menu is similarly extensive with pasta, pizzas, burgers, steaks etc. We had a couple of pasta dishes and an apple juice and a Carlsberg for about £40 which is as cheap as you can get in... More

There's a pizza buffet, you can order a la carte, and there are some surprising menue selections with international appeal. Not a gourmet restaurant, by any means, but a dependable standby

Quick service, good at any time of day, if you want an early evening meal before northen lights trip. Good gluten free choice, I like the pizza! They have a special menu which will indicate food allergy issues over the whole menu - it's in Norwegian , but staff are very helpful.

Have eaten here several times, and its a safe stop. Never received bad food. All the time made to order. You pay when ordering, and are free to leave when you're done. Dont have to wait for the check. Seems weird at first, but it works great. A big menu for everyone - and a pizza buffet "eat all you... More
