We had a dinner buffet here for Christmas that was fantastic! Tons of Norwegian seafood options to try and great roasts available. My entire group thoroughly enjoyed the food and the buffet. We paid for it though. Ended up averaging about $50 per person which is a bit high, even by Norwegian standards. This was, however, the best and most... More

We ordered the grilled cod and the roast board. The size and taste of both dishes were very good. For dessert, we had the "chocolate and berries" which was an absolute delight. Ambience is very important to us, the restaurant is kept at the very back of the hotel behind a curtain which divides it from the buffet of the... More

We ordered Cod, very good, and the Grill selection of meats. Meat came cold and had to wait for a new order, it was fair. Then to be able to get dessert we had to beg for the desert cards after a 15 min wait and nobody paying attention to us. When I complained an out the slow service and... More

A great steak and wonderful service, as with all of Norway, more expensive than the UK but it was an excellent meal

We ate here a couple of times during our stay and both times the food was superb. We had the roasting tray with various steaks on our first night. The meat was so tender and the chips were so tasty. Even the vegetables were great. The second time we had cod and steak and they were brilliant too. Unfortunately they'd... More

In Roast you get good food that is nicely presented on your plate. The food isn't really cheap but Roast is one of the better restaurants in Tromso. Service was correct and well timed. I had goat cheese as a starter and pork for main dish. All of the food was perfectly baked. The vegetables and sauce were delicious too.... More

Very conveniently located within the Scandic Ishavshotel with good hours. The bread here is particularly delicious and the portions are large. We enjoyed a hearty meal on our first night here. Docking 1 star as there wasn't anyone to seat us at first and we stood around idly for 5 minutes until the waitress appeared. However, it was a quiet... More

We were brought very nice fresh baked bread but had to wait an hours for our starters which were tasty but very small. We then had to wait a further hour for the main courses to arrive. The red wine sauce and and roast potatoes were wonderful, my steak was difficult to cut and chew, I have asked for it... More

My wife, daughter and I had a meal here. The starter King Crab legs were minute and over cooked. Our main course, Halibut, a most delicate and delicious fish was ruined by being over cooked and it was tough and dry. Unforgivable from a professional kitchen!
