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.

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

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.

A simple affair that tries very hard to be more. The food is relatively good and the service is great. It is well worth a visit for lunch to make the fort outing a bit more. Lovely for a walk around and then dro in For a hot chocolate or a bit more like lunch. The food is very tasty... More
