This is the best buffet restaurant I tried in Trondheim. The choice is so large that it is just impossible to try everything, and the quality is quite high. It offers a lot of Norwegian specialities so it is possible to discover a lot of new tastes in just one meal. The atmosphere is quite "retro" and old-fashioned but it... More

This icon restaurant has got new owners, and will close down for a total renovation in one week. Hurry up to see this old fashioned restaurant in the midle of the city. Its partly based on self service with delicious Norwegian, traditional "smørbrød" and different cakes.

The food was not anything special. Eggs were from powder or something. They reminded me of dorm eggs. Omelette station guys are useless. Coffee not good.

The atmosphere in Palmehaven is excellent. This time we stayed at the hotel and had only breakfast at the restaurant. It was so nice just sitting there, enjoying food, caffee and good company. Both the food and the service were excellent

I really enjoyed this breakfast and it was extensive. The only thing that lacked were personalized omelets. A vast array of opportunities and local products.

We had an all day meeting at the conference center of the hotel and lunch was served in Palmehaven. The tables were a bit small for our large group. Although we had to wait a bit too long for the meal, it was very tasty. Atmosphere and service was good.

Lunch was average. We were a big group that headed for the lunch buffet. Good cheeses and hams, but could do with more choices in sallads and greens. Very good desserts. The atmosphere is good though, this is an old institution in Trondheim. Some of the conference rooms and common rooms are a bit outdatet. Carpeted floors are very old... More

Two days at the Hotel was just great. Having breakfast in Palmehaven is just fantastic, even if it was in the middle of renovation right now.
