Fake, shame on the Fish Market on Bergen s name

Totally for innocent tourists only. Horribly expensive and not worthy of the quality. If you wanna buy some reasonably price product, go across the street for local shop.

It's not a big market, just 3-4 stores there but seafood there was just so fresh and sweet. It might be a bit overpriced, but who cares, because I don't think you can get to try all different kinds of seafood anywhere else unless you are a local!

Being from one of Britain's main fishing area's on a walk around Bergen we called in at this venue, fish is one of the main products used for food and for export in Norway, due to its warmer waters, giving life to many varieties of sea life, the fish market has within it many area's set aside for you to...

Some 25 years ago, last time we were in Bergen, the fish market by the Bryggen was a cluster of stalls patronised by local people and a few tourists, fresh in the open air, manned by the boats' crews and their families, where you could take away your choice of seafood for lunch. Now it has become a ramshackle enclosure... More

The old outside fish market is not what it use to be. Now its more like an outdoor fish restaurant, overrated and over priced. Inside the actual fish marked on the ground floor from the tourist information is very good. Still overpriced, but high quality. The best places to eat real Norwegian classic food is in the near by cafes

Go to the fish market at the top of the quay and see the different varieties of fish especially the live ones where you can pick your own fish straight out of the tank now you cannot get any fresher than that

Stay away. The quality of the products are lousy and prices extremely high. You find the same products in the city to much lower price. The only eciting views you get there are tourists - stupid tourists!

Please take the time to take a walk around the fish market in Bergen. It is the one little experience you must have! Take a look at all the different fish on display, many of them offer you a quick taste as well! Enjoy!

I visited Bergen's Fish Market while in a road trip to Norway with a group of friends. This is a must visit while you are in town!! The market is vibrant and full of life; you can find anything from souvenirs and handcrafts to fruits and vegetables. The seafood and fish selection is amazingly varied and of course as fresh...

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
