We were told this was *the* pub to visit when in Tromsø, and we agree. It is a great place with very good atmosphere, nice employees, a good selection of beer and very good burgers. They are famous for the burgers, and did not disappoint.

Went for dinner in Feb 2017 and ordered two Elvis burgers, which were quite nice even though they didn't have cheese. The waitress who served us told us she forgot our fries (we only ordered one "side" fries) and then she came back with an upgrade to the "bucket" size fries. They were so tasty we finished them all even... More

A cool place, where you get inspired of looking at the walls with all the old rock n roll posters. Beautiful atmosphere, and good selection of different beers. We tried the local "Mack" Beer. I choosed the one on tap and it tasted really good. The Burger menu was interesting and got me really curious. I tried the Red Hot... More

Been there on 31st of December, right before our Aurora Safari. Tasted cider as well as draftbeer and ate a tasty burger. You can pay with cash or card. Lovely people. No problem starting a conversation with some locals. Good vibes, fine rocktunes, tasty food and cool drinks. Perfect. If the cafe had been open on 1st of January, we... More

Go here for the setting and the drinks. Its a nice place to hangout and have drinks but the burgers are not good. The different flavors they offer are a good variety but the biggest issue is the meat that they use. It is definitely not a quality beef and i am almost sure its a frozen beef patty that... More

This is really a "rock and roll" type of place - a music venue / bar that also servers burgers. And the rock themed burgers just happen to be superb! If you arrive during the day you may think that there is nothing there, but just walk through the door, find a bartender and order your burger. You won't regret... More

We were in Tromso for the weekend and heard about this rock/punk pub. We were interested as we like that kind of music and we weren't disappointed! The walls are covered with old gig posters, fast music on the speakers with 3 levels of seating areas. Bar staff very lovely and accommodating. Asked them to put on ice hockey instead... More

The place is filled with musical inspiration and history. Good burgers and fries. Cosy place. It's one of the few places left in the city that looks the same after many years of
