The only vegetarian restaurant in Tromso. Close to the centre of town, so easy to find. Only two dishes when we were visiting. We had the chickpeas and tomatoes, which was a bit bland, but quite good. Prices are very reasonable for Norway.

Found this place just by chance and as soon as we found out it was vegan we had to try. Setting is very trendy and artistic. Food was divine!! Both ordered the vegan burger such was just packed with all sorts of amazing flavours and veg... Quirky place. Worth the visit.

Only a choice of two dishes (chilli con carne and Thai curry), but both were delicious. Good selection of beer and wine. Very few tables, but not a problem for us.

Quirky, comfortable character. Food was excellent. Only one item offered on Sunday afternoon-this time it was a scrumptious burger made of beet root, hommus and another ingredient which I've forgotten. Organic soft drinks. Lengthy beer and wine list although I did not have any of those. Light jazz playing at a pleasant volume. Great place for a relaxing time. Food... More

This is a really nice chilled little spot in the centre. Friendly staff, and reasonably priced (for Norway!). We had a lovely gluten-free (they used potato and celeriac instead of pasta) vegan lasagne with an avocado and rocket salad and it was hearty and tasty. Whiled away the evening listening to music, playing cards, drinking Haakon, and soaking up the... More

You may well struggle to get a table in this bijou bar/restaurant. We chose this place as it served vegetarian food and got lucky with the table. The staff were very helpful and were able to explain the options in English with no trouble. Only two options per day but both sounded lovely although we all opted for soup on... More

There's nothing quite like Sivertsen in town. It's the place to go for all the alternative weirdoes, hippies, punks, foreigners, crazy vegans and so on...they have food on most days but there's no telling how long it is going to last. They do have great alcohols though and friendly people tending the bar. Anyone must absolutely try this place out... More

Warm, friendly and cosy place with a nice chilled out vibe. With all of the restaurants in Tromso we felt like we definitely stumbled upon a hidden gem here as it is somewhat tucked away from the main road. After searching an abundance of places for even a single choice of a vegetarian option it was great to find such... More

Sivertsens café and culture cooperative is the only vegetarian restaurant in town, a quirke meeting point for people of all ages and an arena for both concerts, poetry, art and dancing. Are you open minded - we are! The chef decides the menue every day - so it varies from day to day (updates on facebook). The only constant is the delicious vegan food and the relaxed and cosy atmosphere. Restaurant on daytime and vibrant pub in the evenings.
