Definitely one of the better tapas restaurants I've visited outside Spain. Good food, OK prices, and good wine also if you buy by the glass (in contrast to many restaurants in Norway). The backyard (which the restaurant is named after) is very nice at summer time, it also provide heating which often is a must in Trondheim due to the... More

Every time my mom comes to town, we eat here. The food is great, it's mostly from local ingredients and the service is excellent. It is quite fancy, but well priced for this kind of restaurant. Reserving a table is advisable.

We had dinner at Bakgården today with Menu 3. We were served by a very friendly waiter, who chatted along and made us feel very welcome. He also presented the food in a good way, pointing out all the local ingredients, which we thought was a really good idea. All the dishes in the menu completed each other in a... More

Excellent Tapas Experience. Talking to the waiter, he asked if we wanted to order or let the chef's decide our meal. We told him it was the chef's choice on what they wanted to create. It was amazing. Lots of different dishes, both local and international some of the favorites were, Norwegian Lobster, shrimp, mussels, along with fresh fried cod's... More

We arrived in Trondheim on a cold rainy Sunday from Lofoten. We were ready for an elevated food experience and we certainly found it in the Bakgaarden. After a warm welcome from the front of house, we spent quite a while trying to pick some tapas plates to share. We settled on marinated olives, gazpacho, grilled garlic bread with sesame... More

I have never had a better tapas experience! And I've traveled A LOT to Spain. Ofcourse it's a different experience to have tapas in Norway and in Spain. But the owner is Spanish and this really shows in their food. Tasty and fresh local commodities from around Trondheim, this is a big plus! The area outside is very cozy with... More

Great food, great wine, great service. Not too expensive (for Norwegian prices), but not cheap. It's a great place to go and have a nice evening out with friends, eating some tapas while drinking some beers or some of their nice selection of Spanish wines. The service is a plus. This is definitely an above average restaurant.

The tapas here compares well with the best I've eaten anywhere in the rest of Europe. Plenty of fish based plates which are fresh and delicious. Local cheeses and hams too. We decided against the set menus and picked the dishes which appealed to us and this was no problem. We did ask whether we could just order as we... More

Excellent tapas dinner, good wine and nice atmosphere. Would probably be a pain to bring a wheel chair or a stroller.
