Loved the food and friendly relaxed atmosphere here in the centre of Tromsø. Good choice of both food and drinks on the menu.

Pleasant ambience; good choice on menu. Mainly pastas and pizzas, but in many varieties. No table service - study menu, order and pay at counter, get issued with a special electronic bleeper, when that starts flashing and buzzing you go to the counter to collect your meal.

You order at the counter, and they give you a beeper when your food is ready. It's all pretty much self serve, but the food was quite good, and the staff was friendly.

My pasta with sea food was absolutely delicious and it was a good size portion. Very nice atmosphere too. The staff were quite prepared to adjust a dish to suit one of my friends.

Good food and very reasonable price. Pizza and pasta were good. Our group of 4 visited twice during our 3 night stay at Tromso. Their menu does not contain Norwegian dishes though

We had surprisingly tasty foccaccia pizzas (the variety was staggering) in a cozy atmosphere and easy location. Family friendly.

We pretty much went here, because it was affordable and still looked nice. The food was fine, but nothing special.
