I have previously visited Mathallen for dinner, both for business and private, and have never been dissapointed. Have thrice now tried their "Lunch for a hundred kroner", and it has the same high standard that I have experienced before. Exciting Food, appropriate portions, fresh and local ingredients in season. All the things I have learned to expect from one of... More

Summary One of the best places in Tromsø. If you are looking for haute cuisine, go here and try Traditional Norwegian products in modern interpretations. Food Just great. The Hering starter with egg, roasted bread, butter and vegetables is sensational. The reindeer main course is not such an overwhelming experience, yet still excellent in quality and preparation. Everything was worth... More

Just try the tasting menu. Gives you a decent sized portion of everything they have, and everything they have is a must try. My fav was the reindeer steak and salted Cod.

When we asked where to go in Tromsø to avoid burgers pizzas and sushis, we were recommended to book at Mathallen 'Norwegian cuisine with a twist'. It was excellent, the food, the wine, and the service. The cuisine is creative / imaginative, while tastes are well balanced. And for once :) the meat (reindeer) was perfectly cooked (i.e. rare)!

Hip industriAl style, delicious food, great wine list, and relaxed atmosphere. We were slightly disappointed we couldn't order the tasting menu at lunch, but we followed trip advisor recos for the salmon sashimi starter and the fish burgers, and thoroughly enjoyed both. We also enjoyed a Sancerre and spent a lovely, lazy afternoon people watching and indulging in great food... More
