I have heard a lot of positive things about this restaurant. It's supposed to be one of the best fish restaurants in Trondheim. To be honest I find the whole place quite average. Nothing special and uninterested waiters. Strange!

Oddly enough, fish restaurants are hard to come by in Norway! I think they export most of their catch. The Tourist Information Centre put us on to Havfruen and on a cold and rainy evening we were delighted to fall into this haven of white...More

Those who love seafood will be delighted with Havfruen, the oldest Seafood restaurant in Trondheim; a Place with high quality standards and a nice atmosphere. It is located next to the Old Town Bridge, nearby Nidaros Cathedral, in one of the oldest pier houses by the river Nidelven. It houses history back to the 18th Century.
The menu features a rich selection of fish and shellfish,always the best of the season. You can choose from different meals in our A la Carte menu, as well as the 3- & 5-course set dinner of the day. We also have meat on the menu.
You can reserve a table or just drop in. We are open Monday-Saturday from 16.00 and the Kitchen closes at 22.00.
The restaurant also offers a private room, seating 16 persons and a banqueting room seating 50 persons. Upon request we offer catering.
