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

If you eat here be prepared to get your very expencive food on a paper dish and if your lucky a plastic fork...:( no restroom facilities...... The cans of caviar and other produce can be bought at the nearest supermarket for one third of the price. The fish & chips cart smells from old cheap oil ....... The trolls and... More

Great variety of local fish and other sea food, not everything is as fresh as it appears, but good enough (remember to see, smell, taste before you buy!) Last night's catch you won't find here, but the day/night before that. The sellers speak all kinds of languages, Chinese, German, Portuguese, Spanish, English and so on. Great atmosphere, even for us... More

The Fish Market is regrettably no longer a place for fishmongers as it used to be. There is fish and seafood being sold, but most of it is wrapped, and there are a lot of fast food (seafood) stalls and the prices are sky high. I live in Bergen, but I never buy myself a meal there.

I live in Bergen and have been to the Fish Market on many many occasions over the last 30 years, but I never ever buy anything there. Why? The prices are horrendous and the quality mediocre. A two minute walk to one of the local shops (either in Galleriet or Strandkaien) will yield a much higher quality of the seafood... More

We went in today to have a look at the fish etc. We ended up tasting a whale and buying one. Not a whole, just some kilograms! Very nice personell.

Norwegians (living in Bergen) mostly stopped using the fish marked 10-15 years ago. Now it's just a place where tourists burn their money and have nothing back but a false impression of Bergen. This is not Norway, and it is not Bergen. It's just an overpriced trap for tourists despite what you have been told by travel agents.

We were amazed at the variety of sea food available. In North America I had only seen stone crabs in Florida. They are a particular favorite of mine. Here there were loads of them and you could have them prepared in any of several ways. Every one in our group of 7 people found something they really liked.

There are only 2rows of stalls outside of the Tourist Info Centre building that sells fresh seafood (especially fish soup and lobster). Though the fish soup is something unique, I felt the food there is quite overpriced for the small portion. I noticed only tourists eating there and no locals dining at the famous Bergen fish market. However, they provide... More
