Taste the local food along the Nidelva river

The Nidelva river flows beautifully through downtown Trondheim and you can dine in style in several of the venerable wharf buildings along its banks.

Baklandet Skydsstation

In an old wooden building dating from the 18th century, you will discover one of Trondheim’s cosiest cafés, Baklandet Skydsstation. All the food is home-cooked and, for many of the dishes, you can choose between a main course and a light meal. The floor slants and the furniture squeaks, but this just adds to the charm at the Skydsstationen. In 2012 the café was named “Best Café of the Year” by the prestigious National Geographic Traveler.

Havfruen Fiskerestaurant

Right by the Old Town Bridge and the Nidarosdomen Cathedral, you will find the Havfruen Restaurant. The menu is characterized by local ingredients and local specialties. Havfruen proudly claims to create fish lovers, but there is always a meat dish on the menu in case that is what you fancy. The menu is updated to reflect the best available seasonal ingredients. Havfruen is Trondheim’s oldest restaurant specializing in seafood.

Folk & Fe

The bistro Folk & Fe is beautifully located in the heart of Bakklandet. This newcomer in Trondheim serves traditional dishes in a new and exciting way, based on local ingredients. The menu varies according to the season, which means at any given time you will be served the best fresh ingredients. The bistro is based around the idea of sharing experiences over a meal. Game, poultry and fish are served on boards and stones – preferably in the middle of the table. In 2014 Folk & Fe won the best new restaurant prize in the UTawards by the local newspaper Adresseavisen.


An Italian menu, not an Asian one as the name may suggest. Guests here are served meat and fish dishes, cheeses and desserts, most of which have a hint of Italy. AiSuma has a great location in the wharf buildings in Kjøpmannsgata in Trondheim, offering wonderful views of the Nidelva river and the wharf buildings at Bakklandet. The wooden building offers an unpretentious and elegant interior where you can easily spend several hours enjoying the sunset accompanied by tasty food and great wine.

Brasseri Bakklandet

In Bakklandet near the Bakke Bridge is one of Trondheim’s newest hotels, Scandic Bakklandet Hotel. The hotel’s restaurant, Brasseri Bakklandet, has an a la carte menu featuring exciting and tasty dishes. You can enjoy the likes of breast of duck, Arctic char or a beef steak in stylish surroundings overlooking the Nidelva river. There is also a separate function menu. A wood-fired oven in the centre of the restaurant, which is used for baking bread and pizza, contributes to a pleasant atmosphere.

73 Bar and Restaurant

Major upgrades have taken place at the Radisson BLU Royal Garden Hotel over the past year, including its restaurant. 73 Bar and Restaurant has high ambitions and serves a seven-course function menu combining local ingredients and international inspiration. Based on a reviewer from the local newspaper Adresseavisen scoring the restaurant a maximum six out of six in October 2014, there is reason to have high expectations when you visit the restaurant. 

Restaurant Nidelven

Scandic Nidelven Hotel (formerly Rica Nidelven Hotel) is possibly best known as the “breakfast hotel” after winning the award for Norway’s best hotel breakfast eight years in a row.  But things are also happening in the hotel’s restaurant, Restaurant Nidelven, that are worthy of mention. You can select from the eight-course evening menu, which is largely made with local ingredients. As with everything prepared in this kitchen, all the dishes are of a high standard.
