It's quite a unique place in Tromsø and the food is made with love and is perfect for those who want something a bit different.

This restaurant appears to be closed down as of Feb 2015, unfortunately. It is apparently located across from the Polar Museum, but the area is more or less empty at night time.

In a warm and friendly atmosphere we enjoyed great dishes. It isn't easy since I'm vegan, my wife doesn't eat meat and my daughter doesn't eat fish! We followed the suggestions of the chef and it was a perfect choice.

An epiphany of flavours and a friendly atmosphere. Lives up to its name, truly an oasis in the middle of icy Tromsø.

We recently had dinner at Afrika Oase. It was truly an oasis. Rose, the owner, brings African food and culture to the far, far north and her warmth and hospitality only enhance the great food experience. We ordered the goat skewers and the wild antelope (the antelope was offered at a reduced price), both served with homemade chutneys (a mixed... More

So we were in Tromsø, trying to find an interesting place for a meal. We saw this restaurant on TripAdvisor and decided to give it a shot. It's located right next to the Polar Museum (Polarmuseet). The place itself is quite original, with multiple pictures of a girafe in random scandinavian contexts, quite funny. I liked the way it's decorated.... More

This african restaurant was a nice experience. We had the chance to speak in french with the lady (she comes from Rwanda) and had a really good dinner. Food was really good and they serve multiple type of juice. Prices are okay for Norway, specially if you keep in mind all the products used for the food that aren't so... More

We have visited the Afrika Oase in July and we had a great time. The host let us taste a few African juices and they were delicious. The food was also very good. The kitchen is just a few meters away from the dining room and you can see everything is cooked like we were guests at their house. The... More
