Get the reindeer, it is simply incredible. Our waiter was funny and service-minded. The food was mind-blowing. Do keep in mind that this is a local restaurant, not a chain, and treat yourself to some of the Arctic foods they have on the menu. We had the king crab, the whale and seal, the reindeer and the cloudberry parfait. We... More

By far the best meal we had in Tromso and the service was some of the best we have had across Europe. The reindeer steak was amazing and would highly recommend it. The ambience is also great. All around five star kinda place.

My wife and I stumbled on this place on our first night in Tromso. Whilst pricey, the Reindeer was absolutely delicious, melt in the mouth, with presentation to boot. Our waiter, Hein, was a pleasure. He took the whole experience up to the next level. Highly recommended.

I had snow crab soup & my wife had potato skins with bacon, cheese & a side salad, both were excellent but as they cost c £15.50 & £9.50 whether they were good value is questionable. We were recommended leg of kid as a main course, the amount of meat was incredible, too much really, and unfortunately it was quite... More

We arrived to the restaurant and asked for a table. The waiter just answered: "it is full". This was the third restaurant we had been to that night, we knew the Tromso Film Festival was on, but the waiter would not mention anything else. We told him we could wait until another table would be free and he just answered... More

Visited here for a meal after reading good reviews of this place and it did not disappoint. Our waiter was very friendly, chatty, funny and knowledgable about the menu. The standard of food is excellent, I had the whale steak which I would rate in the top three meals I have ever eaten!! I will definitely return to Tromso and... More

My husband and I called in for an early dinner on a mid-week evening. We hadn’t booked and it was only because we were so early (~5pm) that they managed to give us a table for 2 ahead of the evening bookings. I think they were booked solid from about 7pm. We’re so glad they were able to fit us... More

We chose the snow crab for starter, and a pepper beef for main course, and were impressed. Delicately served, great flavours and the meat was perfectly done. Very friendly and efficient staff, in nice surroundings. Highly recommendable.

We tried the reindeer steak and reindeer sausage and that was great. Our waiter for the evening was friendly and the restaurant vibe was great. Highly recommended the reindeer!
