There is no shortage of choices here! All kinds of fresh fish cooked right there in front of you. You can taste lots of unusual things too. We tried whale and different kinds of caviar. This was a little pricey, but fun.

Many stalls selling sea-based food. It look very attractive. Spot thetanks of king crabs and lobsters. Tons of photo opportunities. Some stalls have free samples. However do check out the prices; and in some case these are the takeaway prices - to sit down is more. Better value up the street Also lots of hats, scarves, reindeer skins etc

We ate shrimps and crab legs in a stall. The boy was very sincere. It was interesting to see fish sellers, cookers and people eating fish when they walk. Wild Salmons were huge and dark red comparing to the ones we saw before.

I had a seafood platter and everything was delicious, but be aware they put a lot of salad on the bottom and the seafood on top. I found it to be not worth the money but a very nice atmosphere.

I was expecting a big market... no way. Rather small and takes about 2 minutes to see. Great produce if you're able to cook.

As a fish market the first impression is naturally the smell of fish . Many sell the same types of fish so check the competing stalls for a better deal . Some working there do not speak English or Norwegian most do . Prices of fresh fish are generally high . other parts you can eat cooked meals outside .... More

Was looking forward to visiting the Fish market, but it was a bit small not at all what I expected, but I was very pleasantly surprised.. The traders were all very pleasant and offered you all types of fish and I must admit it was some of the the best fish I have tasted, some of the Salmon was exceptional.... More

This is one of top 10 'must see's' in Bergen. It was sunny and warm when our cruise ship docked and the stroll along the harbour front to the market (and the funicular) was very pleasant. May not feel the same if it was cold and wet. The stores are well laid out and stocked with prices clearly on display,... More

I was in Bergen until May and in the city centre i tasted the real norwegian fish. The fish market is a suggestive place , very typical and warm in the winter. The prices are "high" but Norway is expensive, there's no way to eat fresh fish and pay few money. Nice people serving, very recommended !!!!!!! Da provare !... More

Walking through the market was a really great experience and having a meal there was most enjoyable. However, we struggled with the availability of minke whale products.
