In for a starter, main course, and maybe dessert?

More and more restaurants in Tromsø take advantage of the abundance of local fresh ingredients all year round. Expect to find everything from reindeer to shellfish on the menus at places that offer relaxed fine dining.

Sit down for some seafood

Go for cod served with the season’s local ingredients, shellfish, fish burgers or fishcakes, or pick and choose between sashimi and sushi à la carte. Get a table next to Skirri’s aquarium or by a window at Arcantandria or Fiskekompaniet with views of the sea and the vibrant street life.

Cool cafés and other social hangouts

The city’s main street is full of small independent cafes serving excellent coffee like Solid, Lugar 34, and Kafé Globus, but also nearby places like Art Café, Svermeri, and Kaffebønna.

Meet locals at pubs and bars

Get into the local mood and mindset by asking for an Arctic seaweed cocktail, that happens to be the signature drink of Bardus bar. Try a locally brewed beer you didn’t know existed at any place in the city, or just grab a glass of wine with good friends.
