Extremely tasteful menu which is changed every week. This restaurant should have at least one star in the Michelin guide.

This is the place where you cannot rush through the 5 or 6 course menu. You really have to taste everything and enjoy the arctic cuisine and the well composed menu. No salt & pepper on the table. The high quality food does not need any extra seasoning. For a 6 course dinner you will spend at least 3 hours along with the excellent waiters and the fabulous chef. There is no hurry even though the time flies in their company. The menu also includes several tasty surprises.
Excellent local product accompanied by superior wines.

Book early! At least 1-2 months before planned visit.

We had a wonderful evening at Restaurant Smak in Tromsø. The food, mostly based on local commodeties, is excellent. So delicately presented with a breathtaking taste. The wine combined made it just perfect. We have been here several times and everytime we walk out the door smiling. The staff is very friendly and really KNOW everything about the food, the wine and the alcoholfree alternatives. It is definetely the best place to have a wonderful evening in Tromsø.

Had a spectacular multiple course meal at Smak. Although the menu states 4, 5 or 6 courses, there are several small additional appetisers (3 appetisers by my count & an extra dessert) thrown in. Flavours are clean & fresh & service is good. It is a small restaurant though, 24 seater?, so need to book in advance.

Very cosy place, friendly stuff and great food. This is not only the best place in town, but one of the best fine dines I ever had. If you are in Tromsø, don’t forget to book a table. Also very good wine that complimented the food.

Managed to find space for us after we had to change dates. Ended up at chef’s table which was even better. It’s not cheap but worth every penny. Had six course taster but endless other lovely goodies between courses. Loved everything. Big interesting wine list. Absolutely fantastic service. Espen and Eva-Linda are superb at their job. This place is special. Cannot recommend it highly enough.
