Now I understand why a friend living in Stavanger didn't push me to go see this particular spot of Bergen (some walks around are amazing), too few locals getting there give you a good warning. When you will take a sandwich of smoked salmon for a price of a menu in a restaurant then you'll understand the warning. It won't... More

This is one of the smallest fish markets I've been to but that is not necessarily a bad thing. If u want a fresh fish sandwich for lunch this is a great place. Be sure to visit the indoor market where you can have your purchase cooked for you on the spot!

Just a few stalls, but friendly stallholders and interesting fish. If it's fine there are some open restaurants where I imagine the fish will be very fresh. Interesting range too, where else can you taste whale?

This market became a familiar sight outside our hotel (Scandic Strand). Regardless of the weather, the vendors set up for the day, greeting customers in multiple languages (majority can speak English). The variety offered was amazing - we were able to sample various types of caviar, whale meat and smoked salmon. A shame we were unable to purchase fish to... More

There weren't many stalls around here and prices are like in all parts of Norway, pretty steep here. You can see some interesting seafood and shellfish here and the stalls can help you with the cooking and preparation of the meal. It seems from my experience that you are able to do some haggling here. Check this place out and... More

We stopped by the fish market on our way back from our Norway in a Nutshell tour with our two kids (8 and 6) in tow. We had a great time looking at all the different and interesting seafood there. The folks working there were great interacting with our kids. We sat down and had a terrific meal. It was... More

A must see when in Bergen is the fish market. Here they display and sell some of the freshest seafood including live king crab and lobster and a worthy assortment of fishes. There are salmons and herrings and sardines to name a few. Make sure you pick up a tube of Kaviar.

you have a great choice of so many kinds of seafood here, available from quickie stalls to sit-down restaurants. other reviewers have talked about the variety on offer, but i just want to add a suggestion (which at least "fish me" makes in writing) that you ask the chef to create exactly what you want if you don't see the...

Very interesting if you like fish, but not much use if you don't. I didn't eat the samples of whale meat as I don't believe we should be killing these lovely creatures. Others may take a different view.
