We inquired as to the best restaurant in Trondheim and it is the same as listed TripAdvisor. We were early walk ins on a Friday night. The setting was nice but not elegant. The staff were very attentive and pleasant. The dinner begins with sourdough rye bread and local farmers butter. For appetizers, fresh asparagus and salmon as well as dry aged beef carpaccio. Both were excellently prepared and presented. We paired the meal with a J Christopher 2013 Pinot Noir (carnivore and pescetarian). A bit overpriced, but a good compromise. I had the monkfish with mash potatoes, rhubarb, asparagus, and leek hollandaise sauce. My partner had the beef tenderloin. Both of which are absolutely delicious. Although a bit pricey, I think well worth it. I will be back.

I have to say that we went with a very large group to this restaurant. It was super busy and super noisy! Really noisy. Also very claustrophobic. Very good service though. The food... disappointing. Super small portions and super average tastes. And of course expensive. All in all, average choice!

We are very sorry that your visit to our restaurant was below your expectations. Our team takes great pride in its work, showcasing some of the best ingredients from the Trøndelag area, in what we believe should be an impeccable dining experience. This was not known to us. The leader of your group said they were happy and they would happily come back in the future. When it came to your experience with us we obviously fell short and we sincerly apologize for that.

We appreciate your very honest review and I hope that you can find the time to contact me directly with your complaint. So I can give you my personal regret and talk with you about your experience. My email is: roar@2rok.no.

Best regards, Roar Hildonen, owner and restaurateur To Rom og Kjøkken.

Although this is a rather expensive restaurant, especially for non Norwegians, the food here is absolutely fantastic and worth every penny. The service was excellent. They have a wide choice of beer and wine which will suit whatever you may choose to order. The food was delicious and prepared quickly. Highly recommended, possibly the best restaurant in Trondheim.

I've been here four years ago, and it was a great experience. This time, it was very good, but not as impressive. The food and service were about very good. The Salmon starter was interesting, main dish (Skate) was prepared on the greasy side, and the dessert was OK. I chose the set course, but might have been better to select from the menu. I should add that the prices on the menu looked quite expensive, This place has a very good reputation, and the place was packed with both groups and individuals.

The name of the restaurant means 'two rooms and a kitchen', but this experience is more like a suite of palatial rooms.

We were lucky enough to meet the owner/chef (who has an uncanny resemblance to US actor William Hurt) who is a marvellous storyteller, as well as an awesome restauranteur.

The food was sensational and the wines that accompanied every course were perfect. The emphasis is on local fish, but this was a cornucopia of some of the best food I've ever tasted.

We went on a Monday, the restaurant was packed and it is Trondheim's finest. Prices are eye-wateringly high, but this is representative of Norway, as a whole, not Rom og Kjokken.

You get what you pay for. In this case, you pay for the best. I'll be back as I would suggest most people who dine here will be as well.
