Everything else was ok and I liked the open kitchen... More

I have always enjoyed food at Havfruen.But now it have gone to another level.They have a new meny every 2 months and it really is worth the visit.Also the bread they serve is just so tasty.Its made daily at Havfruen and is the best bread in Trondheim.

It is located next to the Old Town Bridge, nearby Nidaros Cathedral, in one of the oldest pier houses by the river Nidelven. It houses history back to the 18th Century.
The menu features a rich selection of fish and shellfish,always the best of the season. You can choose from different meals in our A la Carte menu, as well as the 3- & 5-course set dinner of the day. We also have meat on the menu.
You can reserve a table or just drop in. We are open Monday-Saturday from 16.00 and the Kitchen closes at 22.00.
