I was here with some friends, we all ordered something different but the food was DELICIOUS. Great service, great prices. They also have barista coffee, which is great since all the other restaurants in Tønsberg serve crappy machine coffee. I really recommend this place if you're in Tønsberg.

I was here during a concert with some friends. The food was excellent,we had todays meat, wich was lamb-racks, and various tapas.
Definitely coming back, and it's not as packed as the places by the harbour.
The concert was with a great artist named Jonas Fjeld and we had a blast.
Helmers kro has a cosy atmosphere, also a plus for really good old fashioned drinks and cocktails.

Just a small stone throw from the harbour, this place invites you with a big outdoor terrace and a Hamptons style interior inside. I immediately loved the atmosphere of this restaurant! My experience from travelling is that the best restaurants are not at the flashy location at the main street/harbour. Just one street up and you find the hidden gem. This is also the case with this restaurant.
Great service where we were taken very well care of from the moment we arrived. Food was definately value for money! We all chose the "today´s special" that were fish plate and entrecote. Both were delicious! As the bar is getting crowded around midnight, you don´t need to go anywhere else. The evening we visited, a great DJ was playing funky music in the restaurant.
We are definately coming back to Helmers Kro next time we are in Tønsberg!

Fairly ew restaurant in the building of the former popular Baku restaurant. Like Baku, Helmers also offer tapas. However in my opinion Baku did it a lot better. The selection is not very exciting, and it tastes just okay. If you are a Group of 4 you can chose 5 dishes and pay NOK 22+ per person. Otherwise a serving of each dish varies between 49 (e.g. fried articholes, tomatosalad or amandinepotatoes) to 79 (scampi, clams)

In addition to tapas, they also offer sandwiches, salds and good coffees.

The waitress was very friendly and service minded, and the atmosphere quite Nice at my visit. Might go there again, but it is not on top of the wish list for eating out in Tønsberg

Helmers aim to be more than just a restaurant. During summer there will be a lot of concerts. However then you'll have to pay a cover charge of up to NOK 300.
