Bardus Bistro 

More Fun Than Formal

Bardus Bistro draws its inspiration from the bistros of southern Europe where small relaxed restaurants serve home style honest meals made from fresh local produce at a reasonable price. Bardus bistro is a Norwegian reflection of the traditional bistro concept and our menu is 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 Nordic 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.

 Bardus (bɑɾˈdʉːs), the original Dutch text meaning; that which comes suddenly (baduff). Feel free to use the term… the old proverbs are often the best. Built as early as 1868 as a bakery, 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.

Many of you will have seen the thousands of books that we put in the Bar & the the several hundred that are in the Bistro but a lot of you may not have been on the second floor of the Bistro where we recently added another 2500. They make the space feel super cosy and did wonders for the acoustics. Upstairs works great for parties, it holds 45 people but it can also be used for meetings as well. Not telling you how to live your life, just giving you options. 😊✌️ #bardus #morefunthaformal #lickmydish #tromso #northernnorway #norskmat #tromsø #arctickitchen #mat #matprat #foodie #norway #norge #bar #bartenderlife #mixology #cocktail #cocktailbar #drink #barman #craftcocktails #classiccocktails

In every workplace mistakes are made, searching for someone to blame is not an intelligent response. Instead find out how it happened, own the mistake within the team and with the client, rectify any negative result and be present enough to make a mental note on how to reduce its frequency...take a breath and then have a good laugh. Almost all people will accept mistakes provided you take responsibility for it and deal with any negative outcome with a proportional response. ✌️ Perfection is a myth!!!! #bardus #morefunthaformal #lickmydish #tromso #northernnorway #norskmat #tromsø #arctickitchen #mat #matprat #foodie #norway #norge #bar #bartenderlife #mixology #cocktail #cocktailbar #drink #barman #craftcocktails #classiccocktails #responsibility

I tell you what l want, what l really really want...l want to eat a stunning meal followed by a desert that is not going to push me over the edge. 🙈 This is just a little pic of our ever changing house made sorbet. On the left we got raspberry and coconut/lime and on the right we got strawberry/coconut with sea buckthorn. ✌️ #bardus #morefunthaformal #lickmydish #tromso #northernnorway #norskmat #tromsø #arctickitchen #mat #matprat #foodie #norway #norge #bar #bartenderlife #mixology #cocktail #cocktailbar #drink #barman #craftcocktails #classiccocktails

They make it look easy, like anyone who really knows what they are doing...it is easy to forget and difficult to comprehend the amount of love, passion & hours that go into making anyone truly great at their craft. Between the Bistro and the bar l am one lucky monkey to be a part of the Bardus team! 🙏🏼 Surround yourself with good people that are infinitely more talented than yourself, take care of them unconditionally and be thankful every day! ✌️matt #bardus #morefunthaformal #lickmydish #tromso #northernnorway #norskmat #tromsø #arctickitchen #mat #matprat #foodie #norway #norge #bar #bartenderlife #mixology #cocktail #cocktailbar #drink #barman #craftcocktails #classiccocktails

I know braised beef is not exactly a summer dish but Tromsø doesn’t exactly have a summer....well not exactly what l am used to. 🙈 This beef dish is on the dinner menu and sits in our ovens for 12 hours before it even thinks about getting anywhere near you.
