Bardus Bistro 

More Fun Than Formal

Bardus bistro is a northern Norwegian reflection of the traditional bistros of southern Europe with a menu based on the ingredients and culinary history of the north. Priding ourselves on our strong personal relationships with suppliers, Bardus is able to create inventive and ever changing menu’s using ingredients such as moose, reindeer, king crab fresh fish and whale.

It is very rare indeed that our Ingredients arrive from any postal code other than Tromsø and its region. Having said that, where the cod swims really is out of our hands, however the hook and its owner are most certainly local. We serve food according to season, and to satisfy our own curiosity. You will be familiar with most of things that land on your plate, but not everything…we love to surprise as well as satisfy.

When the sun blesses us with its presence we’ll serve you on Tromsø’s most sun drenched and sheltered verandah.

Bardus Bar

Home of Tromsø’

Arctic Seaweed cocktail.

Bardus Bar is at its heart a Northern Norwegian experience. A classic cocktail bar dedicated to combining the finest products in the region to produce the highest quality experience. For the visitors amongst us the locally harvested Arctic seaweed cocktail is an experience not to be missed.

Whether you have a desire for a superbly crafted cocktail, a great glass of wine, a beer you have never heard of or to flirt with the finest examples of aged distillation...we will be sure to make you feel at home. And if you feel for a bite of food you can slide into our bistro and enjoy one of Tromsø’ finest Kitchens.

Built in 1868 as a bakery and then later then used as Troms’ first cinema, Bardus sits in historic surroundings. The building contains many angles… to venture up on to our mezzanine is an experience in itself.
