My husband asked for a sashimi halibut and he says it is worth its price. I had the fish soup which was a bit too salty and the bread could have been better with it if heated up a bit. We took the middle fishmongers as they seemed more enthusiastic about what they have on offer, giving us a bit... More

We used to visit the Fish Market when it was a cold tent on the wharf. And that was fun! Now, this year, we see it is housed in a new, modern, clean building. Also on the wharf, not far from where it used to be. The fish selection, freshness and quality are spectacular, some of it is still alive,... More

Got there at the opening (around 9am), didn't find any crowds there yet (in fact, there was only one other family), so we had a chance to wander around. Bought some whale and crab meat, along with fresh shrimp and some cod. I wouldn't say the prices were outrageous (as compared to Moscow, if you manage to find that kind... More

Great little collection of food stalls, a bit on the pricy side but right on the wharf and a fun place to wander. Loads of people walking about. No place to shop but enjoy the fresh air, the sights of Bergen and all the people watching.

This was part of Cosmos tour to Bergen, Norway. The fish market is not impressive to walk through but the harbor view is very nice, The prices are quite high. Only tourists seem to stop by and grab a bite.

It's just a large collection of shops selling shellfish and overpriced smoked salmon. Don't waste your time.

Very nice, clean and modern. Everybody who works there is friendly, helpful and, of course, speaks fluent English. We were surprised to find whale meat on the menu! However, we were advised it's legal to fish Milky Way whales in Norway and Iceland. Overall, it's a nice place to get a quick bite. Also, it's considered affordable compared to other... More

The fishmarket is quite impressive to walk through, however the prices are quite high as well (same as in a restaurant). Only tourists seem to stop by and grab a bite, and the staff behind the counter was maybe 50% foreigners as well, from spanish up to german and asian sellers. But it's definitely worth to walk through and have... More
