Where to Eat in Trondheim Foodie Map of the Best Restaurants & Bars

Foodie Map of Trondheim

Trondheim is Norway’s 3rd largest city with an increasingly interesting culinary scene. A mix of well-established restaurateurs and young, up-and-coming chefs who have gathered valuable experience both at home and abroad. In this foodie map, I have gathered all my Trondheim favorites. You’ll find coffee shops, bars, high-end restaurants, and more relaxed eateries. Navigate the map easily either by scrolling through the list on the right or by clicking the points on the map. Places are listed in no particular order.

1. Røst Teaterbistro

Røst Teateristro is my favorite restaurant in Trondheim, located within Trøndelag Teater. Head chef Mette Beate Evensen and sous chef Martin Hovdal have experience from well-known restaurants Ylajali and Maaemo in Oslo. At Røst they have found their own style of New-Nordic cuisine. Expect a lot of pickled and fermented elements, but first and foremost a well-balanced and tasty meal. Wines are natural!

2. Fagn

Fagn is a Nordic restaurant by experienced chef Jonas Andre Nåvik – alumni of three-Michelin-starred restaurant Alinea in Chicago. At the old location of Heidi Bjerkan's Credo, he has created a fine-dining restaurant on the first floor, and a more relaxed restaurant and cocktail bar on the second floor.

3. Raus Bar

Raus Bar is an award-winning cocktail bar by the award-winning bartender Jørgen Dons, and easily Trondheim's best spot for a good drink. Whether you are looking for something classic or more modern, the experienced bartenders can guide your choice in the right direction. We enjoyed a deliciously acidic passion fruit drink and a milder, rounder, yet refreshing mix of mandarin and aquavit.

4. To Rom & Kjøkken

http://To%20Rom%20&%20Kjøkken

To Rom & Kjøkken is a European-influenced restaurant focused on high-quality, local, and seasonal produce. Expect well-known taste combinations and flavors rather than more modern and creative cooking. Enjoy scallops cooked to perfection or turbot with a rich, creamy sauce. The food is paired with conventional wines and served by a friendly and service-minded wait staff.

5. Dromedar Kaffebar

http://Dromedar%20Kaffebar

Dromedar Kaffebar is a small chain of coffee shops, with cafés in Bergen and Ålesund as well, but the origin is Trondheim where they currently have four spots. As Trondheim's first coffee bar, they were also among the first to adopt the Scandinavian style of more light-roasted coffee beans, and various techniques of hand-brewing coffee. Enjoy your drink with baked goods or sandwiches.

Scandic Bakklandet

Scandic Bakklandet is a great spot to stay while exploring Trondheim. Centrally located across the bridge from the city center, you're just a couple of minutes walk away from most food and drink destinations. The coffee bar Jacobsen & Svart is next door. Spacious, modern, and nicely decorated rooms with a wonderful view of the river Nidelva. The morning breakfast buffet offers a wide variety of local produce that will satisfy most guests.

6. Jacobsen & Svart

http://Jacobsen%20&%20Svart

Jacobsen & Svart is the best coffee bar in Trondheim. A small space with a modern Scandinavian interior on the Bakklandet side of the river Nidelva. Head barista Tony Jacobsen has roasted coffee since 2012, competed as a barista for years, and opened his own store in 2015. He's usually found behind the bar himself.

7. NordØst

http://NordØst

North meets East at NordØst, where Nordic ingredients are paired with Asian flavors and modern techniques. Head chef Håkon Solbakk is part of the Norwegian culinary team. His creative cooking style is rooted in a knowledge and understanding of the produce. Passionate sommeliers and bartenders add an extra element to the experience.

Scandic Nidelven

http://NordØst

Scandic Nidelven has won the award "best hotel breakfast buffet" in Norway for 10 consecutive years. The setup is unlike anything I've seen at other hotels, with dedicated baristas brewing coffee, and chefs cooking up eggs, omelets, and waffles on request. The selection of warm and cold dishes is so vast that you will need several mornings in order to taste it all.

8. Credo

http://Credo

Restaurant Credo is one of Norway's finest high-end eateries. After 19 years located at Ørjaveita (now hosting restaurant Fagn), the restaurant is moving to the district of Lilleby – a 10-minutes drive outside the city center. Here, head chef Heidi Bjerkan will have a much larger space to unfold her creativity.

9. Melt Grilled Cheese

http://Melt

Melt Grilled Cheese started out with a food truck in Trondheim before they moved into Sirkus Shopping mall. Recently, the third store opened at St. Hanshaugen in Oslo. Everybody loves toast, and the concept of Melt is to make it tasty, crunchy, and warm – quickly! Recipes and sauces are developed by chef Kim Asserson with experience from the three-Michelin starred restaurant Grace in Chicago.
