Nice atmosphere and good food

When in Bergen, visit Café Opera. There are nice people visiting and cooking. Do not expect a very special dinner. But good food for a reasonable price.

Went on a snowboard trip to Voss and stopped over in Bergen on the way back. Got recommended to Cafe Opera by a local and had one of the best burgers ever! Our waitress Aina was really friendly and gave us tonnes of information about the town! Thanks so much!

This was an alright spot to meet up with friends. We had a nice coffee. The place was quite full, so we didn't get the best seats. All in all was an ok place.

This is a really cozy place, with ok food and nice prices. That's all. In the weekdays it works as a restaurant, bar and café. In the weekends it can also be a nightclub, scene and jam session place😉.

A Thursday evening, entrance floor filled up, one table free. We chose trout (sesambakt Hardangerørret) and burger with bacon. The wait for serving was about 20 minutes. Both courses came with four small potatoes, the burger with two fingernails of dressing, the trout with a salad plate. The trout was served with skin, head, tail and bones. Tasteless. The burger...

This place has some great food and the ambience is fab! I went here a couple of times during my stay in bergen. Norway is pricey to begin with, so this place would be money wise like any other great average place back home where you are from if you were to compare.

For good, simple food, this is a very good choice. For lunch and dinner you can get excellent dishes without having to pay too much, in the evening/ night this old student/ hipsterplace can still give you very nice music or other cultural experiences. If you just want a coffe or a drink: In the first floor the chairs are... More

After two years away, we returned to Bergen and Cafe Opera, and it was as outstanding as we remembered... laid-back, cozy, and cool, with largely local patrons and delicious food. Their bacon cheese burger was one of the best that we've ever eaten, anywhere. And, their prices are modest.

My wife and I have just returned from a Norwegian cruise and Bergen was our first port of call. I had done a bit of research in relation to the Bergen cafe culture and the Cafe Opera appeared a few times. We had a light bite to eat and a few drinks. Both were good quality and not too expensive... More
