It is located near the city center and the most commercial streets. The prices are fine, they are fair for the quality... More

I gave this place 2 tries. The first try just didn't work out at all. I was in a bit of a hurry to get ready for an aurora chase, so I let the server know I was in a hurry and asked what would be quick. She said the fish soup would take about 10 minutes so I said... More

I had the fish and chips, which I saw was a popular meal to order at other tables. The food was fine, but I think that the place would be best as an after dinner place to have drinks with friends.The location on the quay makes it easily accessible from the hotels.

This place was close to our hotel so we stopped in for an early dinner on a snowy day. The reindeer stew was amazing! We sat by the window and watched the fluffy snowflakes fall on the harbor while we ate. Don't miss it!

The place has a perfect view, just next to the harbour. We ate cheeseburger and oven baked salmon. The food and the prices are good, we really enjoyed our dinner here. Also staff is friendly, you should try Kaia at least once.

Visited as good TripAdvisor reviews. Slow service, poor value for at best, mediocre food. I returned my potatoes as they were solid . . . . more were brought out, straight from the microwave I thought, marginally better but still not tasty! Good location and views.

Good value for Tromso. We had very nice home made burgers with trimmings and chips. Good service, warm and cosy with a very nice view of the harbour in a snow storm!

We visited after time on the Hurtigruten boat, and were just looking for a fairly straightforward meal after the enormous buffet tables on board. The burger was really tasty and we had a harbour-side view from our table which was fantastic. Excellent choice of local beers and very friendly service.

Great food at a good price. Really good staff the burgers, wraps and fish and chips were top notch. Cheaper than most for drinks and did nonalcoholic beer. A must for me. Would definitely recommend

We sat in this little bar a lot, drinking beer and playing cards. We watched the weather change and the scenery come and go due to the snow and clouds. A get place to hang out on a cold and snowy afternoon.
