It's much cheaper to eat at the 7-11 and other types of local convenience stores than the restaurants.  Eat your big fancy meal at lunch and then get a hotdog or pasta for dinner.  Yes, they sell noodles and pasta at convenience stores, as well as bacon wrapped hot dogs!
Good tip?

If you happen to visit Tromsø in Summer, head over to the Tromsdalen Kirke (The Arctic Cathedral). They have classical music recital at midnight - it's an exhilaration of senses to be experienced! Your body says that it's midnight and that you should be in bed, however your mind is still very much alert because of the sunlight streaming through the window at the church. On the way back to the city, walk across the bridge and enjoy the view ... It's something to remember!

After 3 separate people told us we had to try this restaurant, we were sold.  The first time I tried to go though the restaurant was so busy I had to make reservations to come back 2 days later.   If you want to dine Norway on the cheap, this isn't it, but the food is pretty good.   I think our meal came to 460 NOK per person without drinks.  The chef is french, the but inspiration is local Norwegian food based on the freshest catch of the day.  Fiskekompani offers a fixed menu as well as an a la carte menu.  We opted for the fixed menu just to sample as many things as possible.  The first course was a scallop dish, the second hailbut and the dessert a warm apple tart.  All were quite delicious, and ridiculously filling.  I'd say if you're in Tromso and you want to eat well, this is definitely a place to stop at.  That said, I wouldn't eat all my meals here. :p
