Top 10 restaurants in Trondheim, Norway

January 8, 2018 Matilde Konrad

Norway's capital of technology, the university town of Trondheim is a tech junkie's paradise and a history nerd's dream. The 11th-century Nidarosdomen Cathedral is the national sanctuary of Norway, and the Royal Residence is the largest wooden palace in Scandanavia. Fast-forward several centuries, and SINTEF science research center is doing some of the world's most important work in environmentally-friendly technologies. Nearby skiing is world-class, with World Cup winter sports competitions held regularly at Granåsen.

To Rom og Kjøkken is a rather small place, perfectly located in the heart of downtown Trondheim, and is most probably the best restaurant in the city (I haven't tried them all yet, though).

Baklandet Skydsstation

We have the nicest backyard in Trondheim, with the most unique atmosphere! And you MUST try our tasty fish soup!

Reviewed By MorrieBund - Ipswich

When the Norwegian adventure was being planned Matron opined that she wished to partake of Reindeer Stew. Bund is also partial to the odd herring, having operated in the Nordic Countries years back. Imagine therefore the anticipation when research revealed that we could satisfy both these wants at a single location in a city where we had time for a leisurely dinner.
Happy to say that all our expectations were fulfilled with the added bonus of a fun environment and super service. Regular readers will know that Bund tends to watch for little extras in the service direction that say something special. Here, it was the lady in charge splitting down a bottle of Coke for two young diners and cutting down straws to make them easier to handle.
We both started with Fish Soup: those unfamiliar with Norway may wish to note that such soups tend to feature root vegetables not seen further South but the results are fine. Matron's stew was a lovely thick affair, proper cooking with no concessions to the arty farty. While it wasn't a night when the full Herring Table was available (that must be a sight to behold) the buffet on offer had more variants of herring than you could shake a stick at and lots of lovely accompaniments. Bund left a very satisfied old man!

Bakgaarden Bar og Spiseri

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.

Reviewed By KhaoTan - Bangkok, Thailand

We were lucky to come across this gem of a restaurant while in Trondheim. We didn't have Reservations, but were willing to sit outside so we were seated promptly. Our waitress had a lovely personality and a great smile along with extensive knowledge of the menu. We ended up ordering Paella, cured ham and cheese platter,cod fritters and lamb and mango. The cod fritters was the best, Paella 2nd and the lamb was last, needing a little more zing! The quality of all the seafood and meat was high. We highly recommend this place if you are visiting Trondheim.

Kalas & Canasta

Reviewed By Wongluk - Hong Kong, China

We are halfway through our Norway trip and this is the best meal by far. Came for dinner. We had booked 2 weeks beforehand via email. Initially they replied to my emails in Norwegian but the confirmation was in English. The staff are friendly and helpful. Only a blackboard menu of 5 items, 1 appetiser, a fish, a meat, a cheese and a dessert. You can choose from 1 to all 5 courses. You can have wine pairings or just order a bottle of wine like we did. The waitress was very helpful with wine choice. The food was delicious. All made with fresh local ingredients. The bill was very reasonable. Excellent experience and highly recommend this restaurant.

Una pizzeria e bar

Una pizzeria e bar is a restaurant that serves real Italian pizza and other delicious Italian dishes. Here you can enjoy good food, good drinks, in a good atmosphere.

Reviewed By Rune S - Bergen, Norway

No reservation but met with a smiling and charming waitress got seated immediately in a kind of tall table common Seating area (got the option to wait for a table, went for the tall table). Another waiter, smiling as well, took drink orders and was back in an instant, before I had looked at the menu. Quick look and ordered starter and pizza from the quite interesting menu. Question if I wanted the starter before or after the main. Before. Another waiter showed up smiling with the starter after a few minutes. And the Carpaccio was excellent. So deliciously thin I could barely scrape it off the plate ! Pizza followed swiftly after completing the starter, needless to say with a smile. Beer empty for 20 seconds before the smiling waiter asked if I wanted another. Of course. Pizza was perfectly crispy, and juicy with a few black spots - over and under. As I have come to expect from any Italian restaurant with integrity. It tasted excellent and the taste lasted for quite a while. The promised super hot salsicca also brought the unavoidable sweat pearls - and delivered on the promise. The place has soul, the vibes are good and the staff is super friendly. I could not help smiling as I left, confident that I would be back - soon :-)

Folk og fe

Reviewed By Cat K - Trondheim, Norway

First - quality of food: everything was salty with very poor balance in combination of food. For example, the crab appetizer was represented as crab meat, but it was mostly the crab innards mixed in with some sort of sauce which didn´t go well. It was sitting in a pool of seaweed broth which I felt I have made better broths. The main course was either halibut or steak and we ordered one of each. Both was salty with a marinade that just didn´t taste like it was supposed to taste this way. The portions were tiny compared to the price of 309 nok per main dish (about $40 USD). For this price, I expected filet mignon, but it was a much cheaper cut which was a bit chewy. I don´t mind chewy as long as it´s done well, which this was not. After the main course, we decided to skip the dessert since every plate I was served, my comment was "we make that better", even the roasted potatoes.
Second: Staff knowledge and service - Our waiter was a trainee, however, it seemed that everyone there was straight out of school and a trainee. They didn´t know the details of the menu and certainly not how it was made or the ingredients in it. Not very friendly nor with any humor at all.
Overall, for the price, one should expect quality equal to To Rom og Kjøkken or Emilie´s. Folk og Fe is nowhere near these other places in quality. It seems Folk og Fe focuses more on presentation than the actual food. We were very puzzled throughout our meal as to what type of food we were eating. We couldn´t decide if it´s continental, American, Norwegian, French, or some kind of fusion. It failed to find it´s identity and define itself at all.
We found it to be very disappointing and wished that we just went to have some good sushi buffet next door. At least we know what we would be getting a decent all you can eat sushi for 200 nok per person. We ended up spending over 1800 kr ($230 USD) for some appetizers, tiny bits of steak, and a bottle of chianti ($77 USD). Won´t be returning.
