Trondheim is positively bursting with excellent places to eat, and there's a major interest in tasting new dishes. This is also one of Norway's richest regions when it comes to farming, hunting and fishing.

    This gives the restaurants a wide choice of fresh and tasty ingredients, resulting in excellent food - even in the most modest settings. But there's no need for modesty in Trondheim: The number of top quality restaurants increases year on year.

    The menu at Grenaderen reflects and celebrates Norwegian traditions without reinventing the wheel: Classic fish dishes, meat and game, all served with the region's best vegetables and topped of with delicious desserts.

    Troll restaurant

    Norwegian flavours with an exotic twist
