“Don`t expect too much”
Reviewed March 23, 2014

I`m often at this place because I live nearby. Usually I`m in for a beer with friends. When I eat something, it`s tapas platter, pizza or other small dishes. The atmosphere is good, very unformal, the waiters are nice and friendly and nothing to complain about service. You pay at the counter when you order your food and drinks, when you`re finished eating you can just leave. Lots of people like that. But - don`t eat meat here! I have tried different dishes over the years, but none of them are worth the price. Eat the small dishes like I mentioned before, a soup or a salad. Fish is also OK. Everything is a bit overpriced - maybe because it is such a popular place.

“Good enough”
Reviewed March 17, 2014

Typical hotel/bar food - not great but not bad. Open all day which is good as many restaurants close on Sundays and many close for several hours between the lunch and dinner hour. Extensive menu catering to tourists.

“Tromsøs best burger spot”
Reviewed March 15, 2014 via mobile

The best hamburgers of tromsø simply; but the fries weren't anything to talk about. Beware of salty prices but then again it's Norway :)

“Tasty hamburger - disappointing fries”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

For a 25 euro hamburger and some fries it was kind of a disappointment because the burger tasted okay but wasn't very special. There were some fries on our plate but not very tasty. I don't care about vegatables but if you do that's the biggest disappointment (see picture).
You pick a table yourself, order at the bar, remember your table number and they will bring the food. Bright side for some travellers, sunday and monday all-you-can-eat pizza day for like 15 euros. Other positive thing, the restaurant is one of the only things opened from 8 o'clock in the morning on sundays (almost everything is closed or opens late).
