Emmas Drømmekjøkken and Emmas UNDER are some of Tromsø’s oldest and well renowned restaurants and can be found right in the center of Tromsø, across from the Tromsø Cathedral. Dining with us can be both intimate and formal, but, above all, homely and relaxing. Our kitchen uses the best local produce to create good and honest north Norwegian cuisine.
Generosity, care, love and consideration, together with extremely high expertise, have been the main factors behind our success. We pride ourselves on giving professional and heartfelt service and do our utmost to ensure our guests have the most enjoyable dining experience.
Genuine and honest food
Emma is well versed in traditional french cuisine and also keeps abreast of the latest trends, fashions and culinary skills. She is always open to good ideas from kitchens around the world but, above all, she appreciates, as we say in the north, ‘real food’; well prepared local produce, just like our mothers and their mothers before them used to make.
Semi-dried cod and fish au gratin are two such authentic North Norwegian dishes.They always remain on the menu even though the other dishes are changed at least 5-6 times a year, according to season.
Down-to-earth and unpretentious
We have three different floors in our building and each floor has its own charming environment.
Emma’s UNDER is on the ground floor (street level) of our building where we have created a down-to-earth and unpretentious restaurant. One can enjoy a meal in relaxed surroundings at affordable prices. These well composed weekday menus have been a success and are very popular with the local people in Tromsø. We are proud to serve a lunch menu with many different dishes at very reasonable prices, among these is our famous Fish au Gratin which is a must if you are visiting Tromsø. In the evenings, the dishes served in the Dream Kitchen are also available downstairs in Emma’s UNDER.
Emma’s Dream Kitchen (Drømmekjøkken) is intimate and cosy restaurant located on our second floor serving the best of north Norwegian food, inspired by classic french cuisine. Here you can enjoy a 5 course dinner, or also just a main course if that tickles your fancy, in an atmosphere dating back in history.
