Reviewed 10 September 2012

We tried the 5-course meal. Each course was imaginative, surprising, and delicious. Highly recommended.

“A Memorable Expensive”
Reviewed 27 August 2012

Fem Bord is not just one of the high-end restaurants. It has this distinct identity that will really make a mark. Fem bord = 5 tables, this is really a nice concept.

The food were very delicious. The wines were excellent. What I really love is that everything that was served was explained. This made the customers feel that they are special and being valued.

I will definitely visit the place again if I will be back in Trondheim. A bit pricey but you get what you deserve.

“Best place in Trondheim”
Reviewed 18 April 2012

Having read a lot of good reviews of Fem Bord we were eager to try it out, and I now dare claim this is the best high-end restaurant in Trondheim. They have a slight "modernist" approach to their dishes, mixing classic and more unexpected flavours very successfully. They also have a very good wine selection.
The most memorable dish was probably the dill ice cream with cucumber and meringue.

“Really trying hard to be better than the rest. Not succeeding 100 %...”
Reviewed 11 January 2012

Been to Fem Bord a few times now, and the first visit was the best experience.

The atmosphere and the interior of the place is very good. Five tables, all with a nice view to the cooking area where the cehfs prepare the food. Even the waitor is wearing a kitchen uniform, strengthening the feeling of closeness to the kitchen.

The staff seems genuinely interested in what they are doing and the wellbeing of their customers, and the service is very good. For me the problem lies in the food. It seems that they are stuck on making things look stunning and nice up to the point that they forget that this in fact is a meal. I've been to seven (or eight) course meals here and left hungry. (And a bit tipsy due to drinking the paired wine with too little food.)

Also the courses vary from (in my taste) nothing special to spectacular. Som of the best food I've had in a long, long time I've had here. Had they not charged premium plus, I'd accepted that and voted this a decent value, but being uneven as they are and charging more than any other restaurant in town, I give them a four out of five.
