Bar with vegetarian food

We were the only ones eating when we visited about 7.00 p.m., but the bar section was busy. I'd say the bar is the main business with the food secondary. So it was fine, but lacked any real atmosphere in the restaurant section. Food was good, but limited to a choice of soup or a vegetarian burger.

We had the celery soup which came in a huge bowl with two pieces of bread. The soup was very flavoursome, although to us Brits expensive, everywhere in Norway is expensive so this place is no different. Basic décor, friendly staff, good food.

Located less than 7 min away from the dock, Sivertsens kate is more than just a cosy place to have a drink. After having getting used to the bars/cafe in Norway (they wait for you to order), we had the two available dishes. The food was good and the beer selection excellent. The atmosphere very friendly (incl. Thomas Fersen's songs).... More

Was worried that I would struggle to find any decent veggie food in Tromso - but had a wonderful meal at Sivertsens. Great homemade soup - a kind of Thai Minestrone and a really tasty pizza topped of with a local beer. Although we ate early as we were off on a Northern Lights hunt that evening, the place felt...

My partner is a vegetarian so we looked this place up in advance and turned up at 6pm on a Saturday night for a really substantial, good quality meal. The Kafe is quite small (only about room for 10-15 diners) and only has 2 menu choices (on a "first come when it's gone its gone" basis), but it was an... More

Lovely vibe, great music - the Jam the Clash amongst others on the night we were there, delicious hearty vegetarian food, great staff...what's not to like. Not too expensive for Norway. If in Tromso again would definitely go back

This café has a great atmosphere, in a really typical old Tromsø building. They have great food, several types of great beer, and a friendly staff. Worth a visit.

Delicious food, lovely people (they gave us the recipe!), great choice of beers, nice art on the walls, not too expensive (for Norway) - this is a place I will happily visit again and again.
