They have daily soups to choose from and fresh bread. I had the fish soup and it was delicious! Their porter dark beer is really really good! It's self service.

No, it's not a trap. Some of the locals will probably claim its a tourist trap. I've been there a few times and I had some fish soup at my last visit. That was one of my better calls on this trip. They had this...More

One of the greatest restaurants I’ve ever experienced during this travel in Tromsø. The fish soup is great and delightful, and the price is also budget friendly here.

We arrived without reservations and the hostess got us in anyway. The food was very good - looked like it was out of a food magazine and tasted as good as it looked.

An institution in downtown Tromsø for mingling and socializing, while enjoying a tasty fish dish or just a good beer.

You have there several restaurants. The greatest one are for stakes and the one for fish. The food is outstanding good and very good service. We enjoyed eating over there very much.

A relaxed and balanced combo of atmosphere, food and beer. I recommend the grilled whale, probably the best I have had. A little expensive. 2 beers and 2 main dishes was 80 eur.

After a good hike we had a good beer there. Nice rustic atmosphere, nice people. If you want, you can help yourself to some hot soup (which we did not do), so can't judge

We went everyday, several times a day to get a table and everytime it was "fully booked". The hostess was quite rude everytime and did not even check if it was indeed fully booked, just shouting out the same line. Not a really nice way...More

Not breakfast, not cheap, unless very late, as well into the day, and/or you are so well off that it would be considered cheap. But they have really good dinners. Recommended.

Hi You cannot eat breakfast there. Although the restaurant is expensive, it was worth every penny, the food was excellent with great wines and perfect view.
