The food has been so good that I have forgotten to take some pictures. We have chosen the Norwegian seafood tapas menu: Mussels, sardines, cod, paella, halibut, Norwegian lobster … The only negative thing was that we have been sitting in front of our empty glasses for ten minutes until one of us got up to ask for more drinks....

I visited here while on a solo business stop in the city. My meal was simply superb. The food was excellent, fabulous flavours that make great use of local Norwegian ingredients paired with the Spanish/Mediterranean dishes. Be sure to order desert, it was able to exceed my already lofty expectations set by the food.

Very good food, especially the once based on local food. The service was nice service and nice atmosphere. Ordering a table is normally needed.

Found the restaurant on Tripadvisor and was not disappointed. The waitress was great and advised us on the Tapas menu. We chose Menu 3 for two people and it was lovely; a nice mezze of lamb, mussels, fish, meatballs, tomatoes, blah, blah. Plenty of food but we also had the tapas sweet and two spoons! Would return, nice place.

I had checked the menus out online before deciding to go here. Online they show a lunch tapas menu starting at 160 (5 dishes) and a dinner tapas menu starting at 300 (7 dishes). Our server only showed us a menu with the 7 dish tapas, I asked about the lunch version and she said this was the only menu.... More

Visited the place with my family on a warm and lovely afternoon, so we chose to sit outside in the pleasant courtyard. There were many guests, but unfortunately only two waiters, so the service was slow. We chose a menu of eight different tapas dishes to share. The food tasted okay, but none of it was particularly exciting. The really... More

I went with my family with the recommendation from a friend. Not very impressed with the food. The paella was very salty and not a lot of rice in it. The fried cod and fried calamari were OK, didn't wow me. The meatballs definitely not Spanish meatballs. The texture was like Ikea meatballs with Moroccan sauce. The lamb with mango... More

One of Trondheims best small restaurants. Excellent service and nice atmosphere for a lunch or a dinner. The food is really tasting good, and after one visit you'll for sure want to come back!

Tapas restaurant with focus on local produce, with a nice and cozy atmosphere. Good selection of wines and local beer and a staff with a smile.
