We are locals and this is often our go-to restaurant when celebrating events or just want a really good evening out. The food was again fantastic. We were a party of 6 this time around, and chose the 4 course menu. Even for the less-than-enthusiastic-about-fish...More

Being a vegetarian it was a disappointment not finding anything on the menu. The staff were very friendly ladies who really tried to explain what the possibilities were but they didn’t speak any more to imagination than a farmers’ homecooked meal. We took the chance...More

We had the six-course set menu. The quality and preparation of the food was very good, as was the service, for the first few courses. It was at that point that the meal fell apart. The kitchen seemed to get overwhelmed with the arrival of...More

Superb restaurant serving local produce at its best. Chef Gunnar Jensen and his crew create dishes that warm a foodies heart. With different main ingredients as the "poor mans" herring and exclusive skrei/cod, cured fish and reindeer they made this meal a culinary experience that...More

It's expensive - it's Norway! Putting that aside and focusing on the food, we thought it was excellent. A really good range of local dishes, beautifully served and very tasty - also very filling. If I were ever to visit Tomso again I'd go back...More

We liked the fish dishes - but there are only some five staters and five mains to choose from if you don’t go for one of the two multi course menus. Quality was good, service OK, prices more on the expensive side. Good selection of...More
