One of Trondheims best small restaurants. Excellent service and nice atmosphere for a lunch or a dinner. The food is really tasting good, and after one visit you'll for sure want to come back!

I have been there to eat some tapas and I have to say that I have been very far from being impressed by the quality of the food. I don't know if it is because I have lived almost 4 years in Spain before but I was quite disappointed by the tapas.

We had a great meal of tapas at this restaurant. Plan to arrive for an early dinner5 pm or make a reservation as it seems very popular with the locals in Trondheim. Everything was delicious and using locally sourced produce is a bonus! Great barista- best coffee in Norway! Staff were attentive and passionate about their restaurant. A great dining... More

Ok, so this is basically a tapas style restaurant, but it is NOT a tapas restaurant per se. So, do not expect the quality or expertise of any top tapas restaurant or food truck, but it is very good for what it is. They encourage people to buy fixed menus, which makes sense when you check the prices, but even... More

It seems that are taking advantage of the fact that people order menus together. The amount of food was disappointing. 10 meatballs for 5 people? We all left the restaurant hungry that evening.

We enjoyed a very good meal at Bakgården Bar & Spiseri. The restaurant staff were welcoming and knowledgeable and the food excellent. As we combined two tapas menus, we were able to try many different dishes, and all were really tasteful. It's also a plus that most of the food is locally produced. We hope to return to Bakgården soon... More

Turned up without a reservation on Valentine's Day - it being Sunday night meant some other restaurants in town were closed. Didn't expect to get a table but instead warmly welcomed and well looked after by the friendly, attentive staff. Excellent Tapas style meal and fantastic chocolate desert. Not a cheap place to eat, especially with alcohol being so expensive... More

In central Trondheim we find the restaurant in a backyard in the Kjøpemannsgata street. Friendly staff and cozy facilities welcomes us upon arrival. We are a large group who pre-ordered tapas. The restaurant is based on local food and starts off fantastic right from the start. I will especially remember the halibut, great tast. The dishes came flying in and... More
