This is a really nice chilled little spot in the centre. Friendly staff, and reasonably priced (for Norway!). We had a lovely gluten-free (they used potato and celeriac instead of pasta) vegan lasagne with an avocado and rocket salad and it was hearty and tasty. Whiled away the evening listening to... read more

You may well struggle to get a table in this bijou bar/restaurant. We chose this place as it served vegetarian food and got lucky with the table. The staff were very helpful and were able to explain the options in English with no trouble. Only two options per day but both sounded lovely although we all opted for soup on... More

There's nothing quite like Sivertsen in town. It's the place to go for all the alternative weirdoes, hippies, punks, foreigners, crazy vegans and so on...they have food on most days but there's no telling how long it is going to last. They do have great alcohols though and friendly people tending the bar. Anyone must absolutely try this place out... More

Warm, friendly and cosy place with a nice chilled out vibe. With all of the restaurants in Tromso we felt like we definitely stumbled upon a hidden gem here as it is somewhat tucked away from the main road. After searching an abundance of places for even a single choice of a vegetarian option it was great to find such... More

This small basement establishment serves good beer and two vegan dishes. There are newspapers and board games too, this is a place you can hang out alone as well. Centrally located just behind the modern library-cinema- town hall.

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...

Great find and friendly service, opening times are different to ones above, they open at 15.00 until late not open on Mondays, not sure about Sunday. Wide range of beers. 2 choices for food when we went. Both myself and meat eating partner enjoyed the food. Good place to go. Nice atmosphere. No need to book, just turn up. We... More
