We should have taken the hint from the waiter, who suggested that we might not want to wait for 20 min for our food. But we were tired and Roast was the restaurant in our hotel. We ordered their roast-board. It came - after roughly 20 min. They forgot our potatoes and wine, but that was fixed fairly quickly. The... More

Really enjoyed the food - so much so we ate here twice. Good wine list. Really enjoyed the reindeer. Fish soup the next visit was above average. Lovely desserts. A bit expensive, by about nok 50 a main course, but good quality. We had no issues with service as others have said.

It had a small menu and a couple of items on it were not available. The portions were small and expensive. However, we did enjoy our meal but would not return because of the price. Friendly service.

We just enjoyed a nice meal with our friends at Tromso. The food was nice and the service was at it's best! We ordered some roast boards and a steak. The flavours were good and kitchen was well coordinated. 1 small remark to improve: the steak was just warm enough.

If you are staying at the Scandic Ishavshotel in Tromso don't be tempted to eat in the Roast restaurant. The food is average, but the service is dreadful (we had to ask for menus after 10 minutes, same for drinks and when food arrived well over an hour after we'd ordered, it was lukewarm). By contrast the hotel's breakfast and... More

Had to reorder as the food served was cold. Waitress was rude and could not care less, wanted dessert but impossible to order, left angry and hungry! A pity.

Probably my worst restaurant experience so far. Incredible bad service. The waitress even forgot to take the orders from half of our group before she just vanished. The meal was not much better. It was not worth a third of the price. Last time (2 years ago) we went here, the service and food was excellent. However now I would... More

Disappointing from start to finish. Arrived without reservation but took a while for anyone to advise us if we could get a table, felt a bit uncomfortable. Then took another ten minutes before we were seated. I had cod dish which was lovely but the meal was cold, I couldn't finish the fish. Flat ironed steak was delicious, roast board... More

We had a dinner buffet here for Christmas that was fantastic! Tons of Norwegian seafood options to try and great roasts available. My entire group thoroughly enjoyed the food and the buffet. We paid for it though. Ended up averaging about $50 per person which is a bit high, even by Norwegian standards. This was, however, the best and most... More
