My wife and I come here for drinks and afternoon tea often since it is right in our neighborhood, but, yes, Restaurant Kommandanten is one of those unexpected dining pleasures in the city of Trondheim. Imagine touring the beautiful and historic Kristiensten Festning, be it on a warm spring day or a lovely snowy day in November, and, like most... More

Visited Trondheim on business two weeks ago, and stumbled on this place by accident as we were climbing up the fortress. Didn't know it was open but went in for tea - we happened to be the only ones there. The chef happened to give us some samplers which we were fantastic, and we decided to visit this place for...

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.

Recommend sautéed reindeer and brownies / coffee . Beautiful setting at the fortress, great views of Trondheim. Very recommended combined with a hike.

After all the positive remarks here, we decided to go to Kommandanten for Lunch. The atmosphere. Restaurant Kommandanten is beautifully situated by Kristiansten Festning. The weather was very nice and we ate outside. The scenic surroundings are very pretty. The food. We ordered a "Denver Style Burger" for lunch. The burger was very small, with no regular burger buns, but... More

So we took a break after the hike up the hill to the fort and sat down to plan our next move. I had several restaurants saved on Tripadvisor, but none of were open for a while, so I reverted to show the closest – which turned out to be the Kommendante about 100’ away in the center of the... More

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 the reindeer and it was very well prepared, with a nice side-dish and a good... More

After using Trip Advisor (which did not fail) reviews as the basis of constructing a Trondheim tour for a large group of coworkers, I planned lunch at the Restaurant Kommandanten into our itinerary. The restaurant is warm, cozy, and the service is pretty spectacular. The beer and wine menu is also impressive. I ordered the sunchoke soup, while the others... More

This is a great restaurant for any number of occasions, and one that became our Norwegian favourite. Fantastic atmosphere, a menu that changed with the seasons, and extremely personable staff.
