Spontan Vinbar The Best Natural Wine Bar in Trondheim

Our favorite hangout in Trondheim is Spontan Vinbar – a casual restaurant and pretty much the only pure natural wine bar in town. Owned by the team at Røst Teaterbistro, the food at Spontan is also rooted in the New Nordic cuisine, using local and seasonal ingredients, but Chef Fredrik Engen takes it in a slightly different direction. A langoustine lollipop with a tarragon emulsion and langoustine glaze is an example of a playful and superbly balanced dish. You can drop by Spontan for a glass of wine and some snacks, or you can book a table for a full sit-down meal. Some favorite wine producers available here are Anders Frederik Steen, Patrick Sullivan, and La Sorga.
