Description: With a panoramic view over the river Nidelven you'll find the hotel's Brasserie, with some of Norways greatest chefs. A wood-fired oven is the heart of the restaurant and is helping to fill the room with a delicious aroma and a great view. An extensive menu with everything from classic dishes to 3- and 5- course menues, makes this a brassiere for any occasion.

“The 5 course tasting menu is a must!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2014 via mobile

We dined twice at this restaurant during our 4 night stay in Trondheim and on both occasions we had a wonderful meal. The 5 course tasting menu looked great and we chose this both times. We ate a selection from:- baked king crab accompanied by crab salad, crab croquette (fantastic), crab mayonnaise (beautiful) and salmon caviar. Shellfish soup with a piece of cod and crispy skin, mussels and caramelised onion in a crab and crayfish bisque. Mushroom cream with slow cooked egg( swapped this second time around for a terrine if duck with pistachios, foie gras and chestnut purée). Next to come was a wonderful piece of reindeer with the best garlic creamed potatoes which we didn't want to end! On both occasions we finished with caramelised Italian meringue accompanied by lemon curd, lemon and chocolate curd (surprisingly good!) crispy meringue dots, gooey Italian meringue, raspberries and sand biscuits. Can highly recommend the restaurant.

“Great place for breakfast, lunch and dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2014

We ate at this restaurant each morning for breakfast during our stay at the Rica Bakklandet hotel, and the buffet is fantastic. We also ate here for lunch one day and twice for dinner, once in the restaurant itself and once in the bar. Our meals were beautifully prepared and presented, portion sizes were just right, and the service was friendly.

“Enjoyed it very much”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2014

I was here on my own for business, having won back a nearly lost customer, I wanted to treat myself to a nice meal and stumbled across this gem when browsing this site.
Service was very friendly and very helpful for choosing my wine. I only recognised a couple of whites, so a good red to go with reindeer was essential. They didn't fail me.

Totally worth a visit.

“Loved it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2014 via mobile

Food was very tasty and service was friendly. We liked this restaurant, great view also. I like the fact that courses are in sizes as they must be ( some places have so massive starters that other courses are not necessery).

“Excellent food and nice surroundings”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2014

Had a business dinner with a group at Glassggården Brasseri & Grill at Rica Bakklandet Hotel.

It was a set 4 course menu where the chef prepared the food on a "cooking stage" in the restaurant. Both the chef and the waiter enthusiastically explained about the food and wines that was served.

The food was at gourmet level. I also appreciate that they base their cooking local ingredients when available.
