Reviewed 19 January 2018

We had a lovely evening with good food—recommended.

The 5 course menu was delicious. The setting is more private compared to the many crowded Tromso places. We went on a Friday eve and reserved a day ahead.

Our favourites were the duck, the mushroom soup and the sorbet. This isn‘t a Michelin star restaurant. Instead food is of consistent high quality.

About 70 Eur for a set 5 course menu is fine—especially for Norway. Individual mains may appear pricy—but the quality is good. Our female waiter looked after us with great care.

The biggest surprise was how nice the place was compared to what some of the very reviews describe (I even saw some odd 1-star reviews). Across all dishes, yes, perhaps some were a tad too cold (they keep some portions of the starter in the fridge), the menu card looked tacky, and some more attention to the interior design would make difference. But food and service were wonderful.

Go before the Tripadvisor ranking catches up with reality—and it get‘s crowded.

Even though its a rather expensive restaurant, it was worth every NOK.
We got the "romantic separee" and loved it.
The reindeer filet was delicious and the service perfect.
They even have a bar and turn into a nightclub after dinner.

We spent New Year’s Eve @ Compagniet and loved it. Despite that it might come across as fancy, the staff makes the guest feel at home as soon as one enters the place. The atmosphere is not stiff at all, the five course menue was at its best and the waitress had always time to speak to the guests and make some jokes. The wine selection with the dinner was excellently chosen. Sommelier & Chefs made a perfect job with food and drinks!
The interior of the restaurant is tasty but at the same time cosy.
After dinner the nightclub opened and dance music was played.
We appreciate that all the members of Compagniet have worked hard on a day where everybody else is celebrating!

As far as fine dining goes this restaurant is up there with the best. You are greeted by an elegant but not over the top dinning room by delightful and courteous staff. The menu selection is not large but there is something for all tastes. In my experience a small selection means the chef concentrates on producing the best. We were certainly not disappointed on this front. Our meals were beautifully presented and the tastes were something to behold. This is not a cheap place to eat but its well worth it.
