The dining options aboard exquisitely designed MS Trollfjord proudly present Norwegian cuisine at its finest, most classic, and most sustainable.
Connecting you to the coast through cuisine
Our chefs source the best local ingredients along our route to reimagine dishes of the past. Using short-travelled, homegrown produce, our food is fresh and flavoursome, doing good for both local suppliers and nature.
Feel closer to coastal cuisine through show-kitchen demonstrations and cabinets displaying dry-aged premium meat cuts and mouthwatering micro herbs. Look forward to delectable afternoon teas and dishes inspired by the local region.
MS Trollfjord has it very own show kitchen located on the top deck. There, our talented chefs take you from fjord to fork with in-depth demonstrations, such as fish filleting and curing masterclasses.
These mini-cooking courses are all set against a backdrop of the Norwegian landscape that produced the very ingredients we use. As we sail, you’ll pass the fjords that gave us our fish, the mountains that grew our herbs, and the slopes that reared our lamb.
You’ll also learn about local delicacies such as seaweed and skrei in the show kitchen; where they come from, how to prepare them and, of course, how they taste. And there are plenty of other delights to sample too, from wine tasting to a flaming barbeque to traditional Norwegian lefse hot off the griddle.
Norway is famed for the age-old food preservation techniques developed by our forefathers to survive the hard Arctic winters. Join a celebration of these traditional methods but with added modern flair in a menu that adapts according to what ingredients are fresh for that season.
Each dish on the menu incorporates a classic Norwegian technique like salting, drying, smoking, curing, or pickling to create dishes that are bursting with iconic flavours, local ingredients, and a touch of nostalgia.
Whether it’s breakfast, lunch, or dinner, you’ll find some of Norway’s most cherished coastal dishes. There’s also the gala dinner on the last night of your voyage to indulge in – no better way to end your voyage on board.
In the mood for hearty, traditional food bursting with local ingredients and flavours? Head to Brasseri bistro for all-day dining. With a relaxed and rustic ambience, you’ll find skaps cabinets showcasing dry-aged fish, meat, and micro herbs.
Eat to your heart’s content with retro favourites like whole roasted kje legs (kid goat), boknalam or Arctic char from Finnmark. And if you’d prefer to grab and go, there are a range of satisfying takeaway sandwiches and burgers that you can eat where you please.
Our fine dining restaurant
Savour a sublime à la carte experience where top-quality local, seasonal ingredients are harnessed to present you with the finest flavours of the Norwegian coast. Craft your own multi-course meal from the wide selection of dishes on offer, including recipes born from the gastro-genius of our Culinary Ambassadors - award-winning local Head Chefs Astrid Nässlander and Halvar Ellingsen.
On the menu, you’ll find succulent meat, vegetarian, and vegan dishes, but this is first and foremost a seafood restaurant. Treat yourself to hand-plucked scallops, flaky, melt-in-your-mouth Arctic char, freshly caught oysters, and juicy crayfish. Seaweed and kelp also feature across many of our dishes as they’re sustainable, nutritious, and packed with flavour.
To complement the unmistakable sweetness of the sea, we serve some of the freshest Norwegian herbs, vegetables, and flora plucked straight from the mountains, valleys, and forests. Our resident sommeliers are also on hand to help pair the perfect wine with each dish.
On board MS Trollfjord, you can also relish local beverages and afternoon tea in the bar. Situated in the two-story observation deck, it’s a great place to unwind and marvel at the outstanding views. You’ll find signature cocktails made with berries picked along the coast, beer brewed with water from Trollfjord, gin crafted in the clear fjords of Troms, and a wide selection of Norwegian aquavit.
