Description: Egon Tromso is a nice and charming restaurant in the heart of Tromso city. The atmosphere is built on old Norwegian culture, with artifacts from Tromsø's beginning.I you live at the Thon hotel Polar you'll eat our breakfast wich is included for the hotel guests. We have a wide menu, which includes everything from light snacks, to rich main courses. We also have a large selection of desserts, where both bananasplit and oreocake are sure winners. For the children we have child menu, a playing area, with games, movies, balloons and a Egon activity booklet.Our motto is "Everybody belongs at Egon".

“Average in every way”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 March 2014

You get what you pay for. By UK standards this is pricy, by Norwegian its a steal. We had a burger which was quite nasty but the potatoes were good. It was about £18. Wes tayed in the attached hotel and breakfast was ok, lots of choice. We noticed a few people were piling their plates and obviously economising on lunch.

“Good budget bite.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 March 2014

Egon is a chain of restaurants around Norway, and if you come from the UK it's probably best to think somewhere along the lines of a Harvester: mid-budget, quick, tasty food with a bar. Food is primarily burgers, ribs, fajitas, etc, etc - pub grub.

But it's a good option for getting away from Norway's high prices - a baked potato with chilli and a coffee was about £12 which is actually pretty reasonable in relation. Quick, easy, no frills.

“Don`t expect too much”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 March 2014

I`m often at this place because I live nearby. Usually I`m in for a beer with friends. When I eat something, it`s tapas platter, pizza or other small dishes. The atmosphere is good, very unformal, the waiters are nice and friendly and nothing to complain about service. You pay at the counter when you order your food and drinks, when you`re finished eating you can just leave. Lots of people like that. But - don`t eat meat here! I have tried different dishes over the years, but none of them are worth the price. Eat the small dishes like I mentioned before, a soup or a salad. Fish is also OK. Everything is a bit overpriced - maybe because it is such a popular place.

“Good enough”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2014

Typical hotel/bar food - not great but not bad. Open all day which is good as many restaurants close on Sundays and many close for several hours between the lunch and dinner hour. Extensive menu catering to tourists.
