We went here for dinner with another couple last weekend. The restaurant itself is nice and cosy. We had different seafood starters - all perfectly cooked and presented on the plate. For main we had beef and steaks which was super delicious. Not enough salads and/or potatoes with the main though, so you might want to order extra sides. Deserts,coffee... More

Since we stayed at this hotel, the bar restaurant was very handy upstairs from the lobby. The menu included more than the usual "bar food" so even my gluten-free husband was satisfied. The bartender was friendly & quick to serve us.

I ordered "kveite". The fish was absolutely perfect. You cant cook a fish better than they did. The vegetables were perfectly cooked, too. Both the fish and the vegetables had that rare quality that I can try to describe as having their original structure intact and still are perfectly cooked and juicy. Top marks from me!

There was a good choice at the breakfast buffet (included in our room rate) and there was always somewhere to sit even when busy. We booked a meal in the Roast Restaurant. The food was good but the service was very slow. It was so slow the waitress told us that we would receive 50% off the price of our... More

Excellent service by the waitress who was both service minded and understanding. Food was horrible, waited an hour for it and when it finally arrived it was cold like taken straight out of the fridge. Food was brought back to the kitchen but only the piece we'd complained about was heated and the rest was left cold. As the subject... More

Food was good but everything else was very disappointing. Very slow service (others gave up) from 1 indifferent waitress. Table not set and cutlery etc had to be asked for as and when food/drinks arrived at table. Not very professional.

We visited one night for dinner during our stay over Easter. It's located in the Scandic Ishavshotel. I'd book in advance as it was rather busy and we ended up getting a window seat. Food was lovely and generous servings. I wouldn't say it was cheap, mid to expensive. Definitely a treat while we were in Tromso. And would happily... More

The meal was delicious, the service quick, efficient and friendly and the atmosphere positive. We tried the arctic char, the cod and the beef cheeks and they were all fabulous. It was Sunday night and very busy, so book if you can.
