We chose Mathallen after reading Trip Advisor reviews and we are very glad we did! We booked a 5:30 table - right before we went out on the Arctic Explorer to see the northern lights. What a great evening! Mathallen is a small restaurant so...More

This is a very, very good example of modern cooking. The interior is spartan in a very hip way, but it isn't off-putting. We got the tasting menu, along with wine, which was absolutely delicious. Foam was involved.

Would have like a bit more lunch options but the no doubt the quality of food was excellent, my simple salmon salad had texture and taste. If we had more time in Tromso, we'd have gone back for dinner.
