I agree with Maren L, -I am also a local, and love the fish marked. But the prices are often extremely high, even for Norwegians, and there are lots of restaurants in the area who sell just as good sea food dishes to a lower price. And the beer! What prices!!! Every season there is a piece in the local... More

The fish market is a classic over priced tourist trap, take your pictures and get out. If you want to sample some local sea food, try the fish soup and a "fish cake" at Søstrene Hagelin, which has two shops quite close to the fish market.

Great place to spend 2-3 hours at lunch time - local delicacies on ice, guidance from the sellers, everything can be cooked / prepared for take away or eating in. Ask for local specialities like torsk (cod) tongues, grilled cod liver and whale steak. If you like wine with your lunch - check in advance as not all sellers serve... More

It feels strange recommending a fish market but this one's definitely worth visiting for a variety of reasons. Firstly it's just a nice area to wander around and soak up the sights - it's distinctly fresh-smelling for a fish market. Don't be afraid to speak to the guys behind the counters and ask to try a couple of free samples.... More

Great place to stroll through. Actually able to find a very inexpensive lunch and it was super fresh. It's a classic spot in Bergen worth a quick stroll and/or stop.

Very nice place. Fish is fresh and tasty and fish stalls are clean and tempting. In summer the market is bigger than winter because they use also the large open space on the wharf in front of the harbor.

Whenever in Bergen, a visit to the fish market is a must. During winter (like now) the fish market is indoors under the information center. In the summer time it also occupies a large area at the end of the quay side opposite the information center. Fresh fish products can be bought here where they can turn it into nice... More

Interesting place , pick your fish from the tanks, or counter area and they cook it. Clean,friendly people and very helpful. Have some interesting fish species in their display cabinets.

As a local I'm a bit torn about the fish market. It's a "classic" Bergen spot, even with the new building.. But the prices are kind of ridiculous.. You can have seafood that's just as good (or better?) elsewhere, at better prices and with a nicer atmosphere. My recommendation is to go there to see and experience, but I would... More

If you find yourself in Bergen, you must make a point of stopping at this great fish market in the center of town. Fresh fish, good Norwegian beer, and great atmosphere. Grab so e lunch of the fresh fish as you sip on a. Ever. It was a lit chilly when I went I. August.
