Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Fantastic restaurant for seafood. Cosy atmosphere in a wooden house next to the river. Excellent, unique dishes (had scallops and octopus). The chef works in a show kitchen, so you can follow him all the time. Beside the great taste, I enjoyed the way of...decorating and setting up the courses. The service was polite, serving and helpful. I had a matching wine (French Chardonnay) but would have liked to have more choice of open wines. It was a gorgeous evening which topped my Norway trip. If you decide to go there make a booking in advance!More

Best place for fish we found - great quality and good value for money. Service was really good and friendly. Would go there again anytime, when in Tronheim. Salmon and Halibut of excellent quality and Crabs were delicious. Cooking with good choice of spices and...ingredients. did not find it expensive as mentioned in our travel guide.More

It's my first comment after long time ,but this restaurant is worth to come back. We came there with my girlfriend after our friends give us some good opinion about this place. First thought when we entered was how nicely whey welcome Us. We got...table near the window with marvelous view on the River . We started our evening with glass of bubbles and than we had our dinner which was very tasty ! Beside service, the thing That made huge impact on us was the Head chef who came to talk with us about our feelings and he sincerely care about what we want to say ! Just Amazing place ! We definitely come back Place worth to Recomend !More

Service and food left nothing to wish more or complain. Wine recommendations were on point and place has a nice and relaxed atmosphere. A bonus point for the butler and chef serving guests on Jan 22 Thu 2022 - individual, great and professional service!

I’ve known this restaurant for a long time now but everything seems to be different and I mean it in the best way possible. Delicious dishes, great selection of wines and such a friendly and enjoyable service. Everything just spot on…not used to all of...these in a typical Norwegian restaurant. For sure a must on anyone’s wish list. Congrats!!!More
