We sat outdoors just by the water and had the fresh shrimp- dish. A LOT of shrimp, almost too much to finish! Fast and friendly service.

Fantastic view right next to the water. Pub style restaurant, with good food and outdoor seating. We had lunch here and didn't expect that much, apart from the view, but food was good and service as well.

I had bacalao in many places, but this one was the bast I ever had. Some places the bacalao is a swimming pool of tomato sauce - this had no tomato sauce! A bit expensive beer and redline, but this is Norway... We come back for more bacalao! The rest of the menu looked great!

I had reindeer stew and the whale steak in two occasions and it was amazing. Even though I like the reindeer stew with mashed potatoes and lingonberries whale steak was not bad either. Very friendly staff..good ambience ! Our door seatings as well but I guess it's too cold for a meal. Coffee and drinks too. Right next to the... More

Close to the harbor with pleasant, helpful servers. We enjoyed the view and food. Prices were (relatively) reasonable.

Up north to visit family, we decided to meet in the middle of Tromsø. Based on Tripadvisors suggestion we ended up here. We had muscels and scrimps at an outside-table and enjoyed the first sunny Tromsø-day in over a month. Lucky us! Recommended - great location!

Went in February and decided to try the food and drink in kaia bar. We was not disappointed. I had the reindeer stew which was perfectly cooked and real tasty and all washed down with the quality selection of the local mack brewery beers. Service was good with a smile and the temperature was perfect. I had a window seat... More

All started quite well but then it went down. Waiters were very busy. Burgers were delivered fast outdoors. But we as 6 persons group didn't fit outdoor tables we took place next to door. And we were hardly not served. Starters came in 20mins. Main course we waited ver 1 hour!!! I was asking that where the reindeer is coming... More
