“Close to perfection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

I had booked the first floor and had dinner with 20 colleagues. Froom booking, to eating - it was a flawless experience. The service is really good, the food is truly amazing and the atmosphere is good as well. I can recommended it to anyone who enjoy food and service :)

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

We have been at Emmas before, but this time was superb. We had the 5 course dinner with the 'small' wine package. Tasty, beautifully presented dishes with mainly local ingredients with some nice little surprises for the taste buds. Unlike many high-end restaurants the food is more than sufficient to leave the place full and happy!

“Amazing in every way!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

This has to be The BEST EVER restaurant I've been to. The main dish was delivered on a silver platter. That was a WOW factor for me, I felt like a princess! The restaurant itself is classy and elegant and has a very romantic atmosphere about it. I loved the heart themed side dishes, even the butter was shaped into a heart. The food was divine and the service was superb. It was second to the northern lights as to the highlight of my honeymoon! I hope I get the chance to go there again. It was amazing!

“Excellent in Tromso.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

I've eaten lunch and dinner here several times during the Tromso Marathon weekend; it has always been very good, fine service, not cheap but nothing is in Norway, especially the North. Very good desserts as well.

“Lunch yes, Dinner no”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

This restaurant has two levels -- a casual first floor open for lunch and dinner, and a more formal upstairs open only for dinner.

Lunch was superb. King crab with no knuckles, boullabaise with a saffron aioli, and a charming environment.

Back for dinner, which was just okay. Expensive and fussy, there were very few choices, and it was hard to select something that didn't have a lot of carbs or fat. The service was good and the dining toom charming, but the limited choices (3 appetizers, 2 fish, 2 meat, 3 desserts) and high expense lessened our impression overall.
