Best tapas in Tromsø.

Wowwww. This was really delicious. Excellent tapas. We ordered the Norwegian combo. Best of all was the reindeer and the bread. But everything tasted fine. Big potions and very nice service too.

We visit this tapas restaurant in Tromsø by recommendation and it fulfilled our expectations. Relaxing atmosphere, we booked it during the earth hour, so everything was a bit dark and full of candles, making the place very cozy. Tapas were delicious, spanish style and real flavors! Good manchego and patatas bravas. They also offer some norwegian traditional dishes in "tapa... More

Despite the numerous places to eat in Tromsø the largely positive reviews we had read convinced us this was a place to not to be missed. We arrived at about 9.20pm on a Saturday evening and the restaurant was busy, always a good sign, and we were told that they could seat us in about 30 minutes. We were happy... More

Many good reviews led us to dine here during our stay in Tromsø but we found the food & service did not live up to our expectations. We shared 8 dishes between 2 people as recommended by our waitress, the cured reindeer being the highlight. The rest of the dishes however were a little underwhelming, the mini burger with truffle...

Went in there thinking, "Oh well, Spanish restaurant in Norway" and was skeptical about the quality / portions of food. However, to my complete surprise, the host quickly put together some of the best tapas I have had in a long time. The trek to Presis (while it was snowing) was totally worth it.

We were lucky enough to be the first to try the new menu,including the miniburger, it was delicious, as was everything else. Excellent, couldn't fault it in any way.

After visiting several tapas restaurants in Norway (most of them in Oslo including Delicatessen's locations, Escalon and several others), I must say Presis in Tromsø is probably the best of them all. Make sure you have the cured reindeer (gravet reinsdyrfilet), but rest assured that you can't go wrong with the other dishes either. I have visited Presis twice; January... More

Presis chefs make good, tasty food. We live in Spain and the Patatas Bravas at Presis are just as good as any we've tasted here! The chef understands good ingredients, taste pairings and seasoning. The lamb was excellent!
