This place certainly has gourmet aspirations: very formal atmosphere, "creative" menus etc. But there were things about it that didn't work for me. I started with the asparagus soup. And planted in the middle of this were a chunk of chicken pate, and a dollop what I think was pureed cauliflower. Either of these would have been fine as a... More

Wonderful to find such a fine dining experience in such a small place. Well presented with matching wines the signature menu is a delight from beginning to end. The young Staff coped well with a busy restaurant but it would have helped us enjoy the surprise experience if a little explanation had been given or left in written form as... More

Me and my husband have recently visited this lovely restaurant. We had deer and ox cheek, veal and confit duck leg. I love the way they serve main courses, you have 2 different main course in 1, plated separately. Food looks amazing, and tastes really delicious. Deffinitely visit again and recommend.

We chose Compagniet for dinner because of the great reviews and they had reindeer on their menu which we wanted to try. It's a lovely restaurant, service was excellent - wait staff made excellent recommendations and they were very accommodating to special dietary requests. The food was amazing! Reindeer meat was soft and juicy, seafood was fresh. We all enjoyed... More

My husband went for their dinner menu (5 courses) and I had a starter and main. We were both extremely happy with all the courses we were served. The waitress showed great expertise in recommending the wines and food dishes and the service was excellent. Though all the courses we ate were excellent - the duck confit was particularly outstanding.... More

I visited just the bar: it was cosy with outdoor seating. The selection of tap beers was rather limited compared to many other bars in Tromso. My colleagues praised the cocktails.

Efficient and friendly service, attentive but not invasive. Intimate setting, food and wine was excellent. The waiter knew the best food and wine combinations.

Compared to the other restaurants in Tromso, this one was by far the best. Definitely try the duck with fig (was divine) and their cod dishes!

I feel a little mean scoring this with only a 3, but the reason it lost points was pretty major. To start, we had lobster ravioli and seafood soup - absolutely excellent, and made us optimistic for the main courses. The main course comes in 2 parts - so if you're not very hungry, I would skip the starter. I... More
