As befits Norway’s third city, Trondheim has a good selection of first-rate restaurants serving a variety of cuisines, though the Norwegian places almost always have the gastronomic edge. In particular, there’s a couple of especially fine restaurants in the Bakklandet district, by the eastern end of Gamle Bybro, and a third at the south end of neighbouring Kjøpmannsgata. Bars are dotted all over the city centre, but the weekend scene is at its liveliest on and around Brattørgata and in the Nedre Elvehavn district, where the former municipal shipyard has been turned into a large leisure complex of shops, bars and restaurants. Finally – if needs must – the city’s mobile fast-food stalls are concentrated around Sentralstasjon and along Kongens gate, on either side of Torvet.
