First, let us say what is good about this restaurant: the location, the atmosphere, the reindeer. We dined here in the evening when the views over Trondheim at night are stunning. You feel as though you are in someone's home, rather than a restaurant. Everyone...More

The location is picturesque and authentic. The service standard is advanced , the food is refined, with a sufficient choice of wines & spirits. Excellent soup. Too bad for small portions

The place is one of Trondheim´s best kept secrets. It is situated inside the fortress and you can overlook the whole town. Well worth a visit. Traditional cuisine with local produce of meat and vegetables etc.

This place, located inside the fortress of Festningen, might look like a place for tourists to have a coffee but it is much more than that. It is a restaurant with some very nice food (mainly Norwegian specialities) in a very charming place. I tried...More
