“Good food but portions rather small.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

I'm giving this a rather reluctant 4 stars because of the small portion size: if a 3.5 were an option, that would about cover it.

The food was very good: I had a cured ham starter, followed by cod, which was nicely marinated & accompanied by a pureed seafood sauce.

The menu is very limited and as others have noted, apparently varies frequently. The chef does seem to know what he is doing, though.

“Intimate dining with a creative menu and great staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2014

A group of our friends raved about this restaurant so we tried it. We were delighted, even though we had only appetizers and wine (too jet lagged to eat more). The appetizers were the best I've ever had anywhere! Wine was good (although the choices were limited) and not too expensive. The waiter was very forthcoming, charming, and gracious--and even understanding when I set our city map on fire with the candle.

I"d go back in a minute .... and we will, tomorrow.

“New menu every week”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

This place is intimate and the food is great. It is not possible to reccomend signature dishes since they change the menu at least every week, both dinner and lunch menu. Service is really good and the wine and pre-dinner drinks are at a high restaurant standard. I think that the bistro is resembles a southern european restaurant with a small menu that reflects the seasons best ingredients. A bonus is the bar next door that serves very good drinks after dinner!

“Quality Improvement Needed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2014

A relatively new bistro in the Arctic city of Tromsø, located in one of the typical old wooden houses in the city centre. A small and cozy bistro, with a small but exciting menu. As a curiosity, the serve horse beef. I tried the leg of lamb, unfortunately it should have been cooked for another hour. For such a meal, Brasseriet 69 is probably a better choice. But with some quality improvements on the food itself, Bardus Bistro will be a very nice supplement to the continuously increasing choices in Tromsø.
