While visiting family in Trondheim they suggested Havfruen as it is a local favorite. Our dinning experience started and ended badly.

We have been to Havfruen on the advice of our Trondhiem host and it was as great as expected. Fresh products served in a simple but delicious cuisine. On the day menu we had mussels in white wine, cod fish from catch of the day with mashed carrot and potatoes, and creme brûlée. Excellent!

The cremė brulee is out of this world.Cozy ambience in historical building.Ask for a table near window ,so you see the river Nidelven while enjoying your food.Fish of the day was actually from the same river.Isn't that just amazing.There are aslo more decadent joices on the meny ,depending on the time of the year.Must visit when in Trondheim.

I wend for a dinner during the week and the restaurant was not full. It was a wonderful experience eating near the window, seeing the harbor and eating the most delicious cod. I warmly recommend this place.

The menu features a rich selection of fish and shellfish,always the best of the season, and we serve 3-course to 7-course menus of the month with winespairings if you wish. The restaurant also offers a private room, seating 16 persons and a banqueting room seating 70 persons.We also have a Bar & Tapas section by the river. Bar Havfruen is modern and cosy, where you can have a drink before or after dinner, or just pop in for a refreshment. We also serve Seafodd Tapas and Todays Fish & Meat here.
