This is first and foremost a tourist trap, and likely you are ripped off if eating here. i still enjoyed walking around looking at the various seafood they had for sale. You could get real fresh fish, as they had live cod in the fishtanks. I was offered a sample of newly cooked shrimps, which were delirious, however, the price... More

We were a bit upset about the whale sausage....but so many beautiful fish on display. Places where you could pick out a piece and they would cook it for you. We were there in March and it was a bit cold so there wasn't much activity.

Ordered some Hansa (beer) and fish soup, stone crab claws, Norwegian oysters and smoked fish plate. The stone crabs were a bit overcooked, and the oysters too briny for my taste. But I asked to not have smoked whale and they were very accommodating. The smoked fish platter was absolutely delicious. They substituted smoked cod which was delicious. No one... More

We pass by several times a week when we go into town, and cannot help but feel sorry for all the tourists who are getting ripped off in there. We checked out the place when we first arrived in Bergen, and were immediately repulsed by how commercial and touristy the whole place was. You can get the stuff they sell... More

As norwegians we are accustomed to high prices on everything, but this made even me angry. Overpriced fish and merchandise and a sour mood on some of the salesmen. The price for some fish and chips was a staggering £18. How dare they take advantage of tourists fresh of the cruise ship, who think this is a fair price for... More

I can imagine once upon a time the Bergen fish market would have been an impressive place. However it is now in a new building with the tourist office appropriately upstairs. There were maybe 3 small stalls selling fish, not much more impressive than what you will find in your local supermarket. Spent 2 minutes and was out, prices are... More

A touristic trap with not enough content in March at least. I've heard the locals buy their seafood just next door.

The fish marked in Bergen as moved to a new building some years ago. Ok ...now it is under a roof, nice building ..but a lot of its old sharm is lost. But the most negative thing is the price....it is SO expensive there that only wealty tourist can afford to eat there. Local people from Bergen can't afford to... More

Yes, the historical location gathers the crowd. But the prices are horrid even for norwegian standards. Worth visiting and stop for a moment. But avoid shopping or dining.
